Curvy women are real women. Skinny women are real women. Women who have had boob jobs or lip enhancements or liposuction are still real women. Size 0 may make no sense mathematically, but a woman who wears that size is as real as the one who wears a size 16. What makes us “real” people is not the shape of our flesh but our basic humanity. And we lose our humanity when we judge – not when we lose weight, gain weight, or make the intensely personal decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.
We are fully alive when we are in harmony with eternal symbols; wisdom is a return to them.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, because you never know how soon it will be too late.
Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.
