    “The moment will arrive when you are comfortable with who you are, and what you are– bald or old or fat or poor, successful or struggling- when you don't feel the need to apologize for anything or to deny anything. To be comfortable in your own skin is the beginning of strength.”
    ― Charles B. Handy

    Some woo for you know who....

    "and the head Monk with his padawan were sitting on a hillside over looking a valley and he asks,
    "Grasshopper, what do you see?"
    "I see nothing, it all looks the same, trees , grass and a few birds."
    "Over there Grasshopper, what do you see?"
    "I see the same as I did before, nothing" the reluctant Padawan complained.
    "Over there and the Monk pointed,"What do you not see?"
    The padawan thought for a bit and said "Everything"

    “Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.”

    Having been stuck in an office job for the past X years, I find the "Demotivators" posters pretty memorable:

    - If you have an idiot and you motivate him... you have a motivated idiot.

    - Inside every snowflake is a perfectly unique meltdown waiting to happen.

    - Believe in yourself... because the rest of us think you're an idiot.

    - Until you spread your wings... you'll have no idea how far you can walk.

    - No single raindrop believes it is responsible for the flood.

    - Minds are like parachutes... just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can borrow mine.

    - With enough hot air even losers can fly.

    Always remember that you are unique; just like everybody else.
