A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because the trust is not on the branch but on the bird’s own wings. Always believe in yourself.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
– Marianne Williamson
