I saw this on a friend's facebook page.
"All unhappiness and stagnation results from a feeling that you are at the mercy of the world and the people in it. But what a joy it is, what a major shift to strength and power, when you no longer wait around for others to favor and love you, for others to flatter and reward you. Reward and flatter yourself, favor and love yourself."- Kira Salak, Writer and National Geographic Emerging Explorer
