- "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

- Thoughts Without A Thinker, by Mark Epstein. A terrific introduction for westerners to buddhism. Written by a Harvard educated psychiatrist and one of the first westerners to study modern buddhism. Note, in Blake's opinion the first half of this book is the most important as a historical account of buddhism. Epstein's notions of neuroscience seems outdated (sorry Mark) and he tends to overestimate the importance of Freudian theory. I appreciated his history lessons, not his analysis
