To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

Authentic self

You know who you are, how you are, what you value. Refuse to let anyone tell you differently.

Some people who may not even know you will try to shame you, embarrass you, make you feel guilty. Anyone who does that has no special insight, just a self-serving desire to advance their own agenda.

You know what’s in your heart. You’re able to see for yourself what is true and what is not.

Respect the perspectives and opinions of others, and welcome their expression. But don’t allow anyone else’s opinion to define you or prevent you from living your truth.

To be a positive force in life, be your authentic self. There’s never any need to ask permission or forgiveness for that.

You have much good to offer life. Give that goodness, in whatever way you know to be best.

— Ralph Marston
