    “As long as anyone believes that his ideal and purpose is outside him, that it is above the clouds, in the past or in the future, he will go outside himself and seek fulfillment where it cannot be found.
    He will look for solutions and answers at every point except where they can be found--in himself.”

    Erich Fromm

    Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness.
    Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.
    Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.

    ~August Wilson
