Engrave this Quote I am here because there is no refuge,
Finally, from myself,
Until I confront myself in the eyes
And hearts of others, I am running.
Until I suffer them to share my secrets,
I have no safety from them.
Afraid to be known, I can know neither myself
Nor any others; I will be alone.
Where else but on this common ground,
Can I find such a mirror?
Here, together, I can at last appear
Clearly to myself,
Not as the giant of my dreams,
Not the dwarf of my fears,
But as a person, part of a whole,
With my share in its purpose.
In this ground, I can take root and grow.
Not alone anymore, as in death,
But alive, to my self and to others.

Wilhelm Meister, 1829
Engrave this Quote It is only the minority of people who seek self-improvement or personal growth. This is because whatever one's self-criticisms, one secretly really believes that one's way of being is okay and probably the only correct one. They are alright as they are, and all problems are caused by other people's selfishness, unfairness, and by the external world.

Engrave this Quote A beggar had been sitting by the side of the road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by.
Spare some change? mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his baseball cap.
I have nothing to give you, said the stranger. Then he added, What's that you are sitting on?
Nothing, replied the beggar, Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.
Ever look inside? asked the stranger.
What's the point? There's nothing in there.
Have a look inside, insisted the stranger.
The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw the box was filled with gold.
