I hear and read and pick up all kinds of quotes form all different places.  I'll certainly do my best to give credit where credit is do, but just know that none of these are original.  Some make me smile.  Others make me think.  A few make my eyes well up with tears:

A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep.  In dreams you will lose your heartaches.  Whatever you wish for, you keep.  Have faith in your dreams, and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through.  No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true.  -Cinderella

When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you. -African proverb
