Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don't want it.
What appears bad manners,
an ill temper or cynicism is always a sign of things
no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.
You do not know what wars are going on
down there where the spirit meets the bone.
-Miller Williams

“It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to

“I know myself very, very well. And I love

performing and I love telling stories. My
thought process has always been, I’m excited
to show you what my version of this story
would look like. You’re going to be able to get a
little condensed show. That took the pressure
off getting the job.... I call my performances
exorcisms. I’m always working something out
of my system.”

They were about other things that

had nothing to do with my career. Safety was
in opening my mouth and making noise.”
Auditions, he explains, are nothing more
than an opportunity “to go in and transfer
some energy. It’s like a yawn. I start yawning,
everybody yawns.”

“Ask, be specific,
and then release it,” he advises. “Because in
some way, its energetic equivalent will be given
to you. That’s what’s happening to me. I really
believe that.”

You have to NARROW your FOCUS on one thing, because all you can do is plant the
seed. God will water it, God will make the sun shine on it, the only thing you can do is
water it. You can’t stop believing in that one thing no matter what. – Tyler Perry on being
“It is the constant exposure to failure that frees you from the strongholds of the ego and
allows you to embrace vulnerability, and it is in embracing vulnerability that you can
surprise yourself in performance and share something really special about human nature.
”- Lupita Nyongo

A person who does what they want know what they want to do

“To some people, not caring is supposed to be cool, commenting is more interesting than
doing, and everything is judged and then disposed of in, like, five minutes. I’m not interested
in those kinds of people. I like the person who commits and goes all in and takes big swings
and then maybe fails or looks stupid, who jumps and falls down, rather than the person who
points at the person who fell, and laughs. But I do sometimes laugh when people fall down.”

“What starts as nectar ends as poison, what starts as poison ends as nectar”.

Do ye not seek one moment of rest by day or by night. Nay, rather strive after composure of heart in
the heaven of Unity. Do ye not for one moment obey the instinct of the worldly consciousness for ease.
Seek ye divine happiness through the hardships and sorrows of this physical world, and behold
spiritual well-being in the struggles of this fleeting existence. Distill sugar and honey from the bitter
poison of suffering. Recognize the caress of divine favor in the arrows of misfortune. Consider the
lowest degree of humiliation in the path of the Blessed Perfection as the highest station of Glory. Know
descent to be identical with ascent, and consider death itself the essence of life.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Bahá’í Scriptures, p. 439)

“We’re not going to make it. My show. The score is acclaimed, but it’s not
commercial enough. It’s not the thing that is exciting and really in people’s heads.
Back when all the classics were written, people had a different mind-set of sitting
still and listening to something and learning it. Nowadays, people want to

Theatre is the art of saying yes. – Billy Wildrick

"If you're brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything
from your house, to bitter old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either
externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that
journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are
prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth
will not be withheld from you."

Tarin: It has been one year since I lost my father, and the greatest lesson I have learned from that
experience is this: We are here for such a short time, but if we live in fear and run from love it can
seem very, very long. And while by hiding our true feelings we may be able to avoid the
discomfort of being vulnerable for the moment, it only opens the door for that biggest of all
monsters: regret. Live and love with passion, and don't be afraid to open your heart.

"Maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to
really be there. Because it's okay to feel things. And be who you are about them."

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are
at peace you are living in the present. ~ Lao Tzu

“Well-intentioned racial humor doesn’t actually do anything to end racism or the
Redskins mascot,” Park told me. “That sort of racial humor just makes people who hide
under the title of progressivism more comfortable.”
St. Francis,” he says: “‘Preach the gospel, and if necessary, use words.’”

Baz Luhrman Quote:

The biggest worries of your life are things that will never cross your troubled mind.

"May your work be compelling and original. May it be profound, touching, contemplative, and
unique. May it help us to reflect on the question of what it means to be human, and may that
reflection be blessed with heart, sincerity, candor, and grace. May you overcome adversity,
censorship, poverty and nihilism, as many of you will most certainly be obliged to do. May you be
blessed with the talent and rigor to teach us about the beating of the human heart in all its
complexity, and the humility and curiosity to make it your life's work. And may the best of you - for
it will only be the best of you, and even then only in the rarest and briefest moments - succeed in
framing that most basic of questions, "how do we live?" Godspeed."
- John Malkovich

“Rather than death’s motivating one to avoid risks in life, the film [A Man and a Woman] suggests that
not taking emotional risks is a form of death itself”

“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them

"Life is beautiful, as long as it consumes you. When it is rushing through you, destroying you, life is
gorgeous, glorious. It’s when you burn a slow fire and save fuel, that life’s not worth having." - D. H.

"I would far rather be an outcast

upon the bosom of the great world
than be an accomplice to
a moral nothingness
rather a bloody spark that
no hand will shield
that glows wildly and is extinguished
and obliterated with no trace
than glow as a lamp
with a calm measured flame
evening after evening
in that eternal sitting-room
where the canary slumbers
in its blanket-covered cage
and time is slowly counted out
by the old sitting-room clock
no the spark has the ability
to light the fire
and to know that it was responsible
for the sound of the fire siren
to know it was responsible
for the sea of flames
that broke with tradition
and turned the hourglass upside down."
-Edvard Munch

"After a while you learn the subtle difference

Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning

And company doesn’t mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts

And presents aren’t promises,

And you begin to accept your defeats

With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,

And you learn to build all your roads on today

Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while you learn…

That even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”

- Jorge Luis Borges

“We know it’s hard but we need you out here no matter what your walls are made

All people operate from the same two motivations: to fulfill their desires and to escape their
Learning this allowed me to finally make sense of how people can hurt each other so badly. The
best explanation I had before this was that some people are just bad. What a cop-out. No matter
what kind of behavior other people exhibit, they are acting in the most effective way they are
capable of (at that moment) to fulfill a desire or to relieve their suffering. These are motives we
can all understand; we only vary in method, and the methods each of us has at our disposal
depend on our upbringing and our experiences in life, as well as our state of consciousness.
Some methods are skillful and helpful to others, others are unskillful and destructive, and almost
all destructive behavior is unconscious. So there is no good and evil, only smart and dumb (or
wise and foolish.) Understanding this completely shook my long-held notions of morality and

Stolen from my favorite TED talk: "I know that vulnerability is the core of shame and fear and our
struggle for worthiness...but it appears that it is also the birthplace of joy, of creativity, of
belonging, of love. This is what I have found: to let our selves be seen. Deeply Seen. Vulnerabily
seen. To love with our whole hearts, even though there's no guarantee..."

"When you are standing at the edge of a cliff, jump to fly, not to fall."

Whatever your 'cliff' in life may be, don't look down from it with fear or apprehension about what
will happen. Just take the leap and have faith that you will grow your wings as you fly if need be.
They say if your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough...well I think if your life doesn't
scare you, you're not being bold enough to go after the things you want.

So next time you're questioning what your next step is, just jump. I promise you will be amazed at
how gracefully you fly.

"Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth.
They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every
day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who
think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they'll never work again. Every day, they
have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream.
With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and
judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve
the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why?
Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that melody,
that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul. Singers and Musicians
are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their
creative spirit and touched another's heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and
perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to
that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.” - David Ackert, LA Times

Philippians 2:3-5 Don't do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast,

And look out for one another's interests, not just for your own. The attitude you should
have is the one that Christ Jesus had.

about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to
shine. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates
