      "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
      we are powerful beyond measure." Nelson Mandela, quoting Marianne Williamson, inaugural speech, 1994.

      "Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue . . . and the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer." Rilke
