"We are all slaves to our histories. If there is to be a .. bright future, we must learn to break those chains."

"The universe puts us in places where we can learn. They are never easy places, but they are right. Wherever we are, it's the right place .. and the right time. Pain that sometimes comes is part of the process of constantly being born."

"The universe is run by the complex interweaving of three elements; energy, matter, and enlightened self interest"
