  • If we started out with only fear, we wouldn’t have gotten any where close to victory.

    Winning and victory are sometimes very different, as different as our own identities. What is 'winning' to me will be 'victory' to another, and vice versa. Winning denotes competition where as victory is honed out of something deeper, more personal, more enmeshed with another’s essential human path...

    If we started out with fear, we wouldn’t have even stood upright. I am sure of that. And: there’d be none of the glory of this collective dream.

    We started out in love, undoubtably, I have the proof all around me.
