    bruce, such deep sadness over the monsanto decision, losing the gun control bill and now the keystone. this is hard to take, to have our world continue to be controlled by those who have no heart.

    I appreciate all of these quotes. The one that speaks most to me at the moment is the Tagore one — planning is valuable, yet it can become a state of paralysis instead of a springboard to action. It seems that courage is what we need to move from the “thinking about” stage to the “doing” one. Thanks for sharing!
