A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because the trust is not in the branch.  It's in the bird's own wings.

That is quite good advice, but if it is going to build a nest there, you would think it must have some level of trust in the branch?

Perhaps.  Or the bird trust it's own natural instincts, so be it a branch, a gutter, a 'O' in a store sign, the Home Depot.  Trust seeds from within.

Quote from: Ultimate Warrior
In its design, Destrucity represents a constellation existing in the heavens which symbolizes the "Eight Disciplines" by which Warriors choose to live their lives. Brought to existence by the destinies of those willing to die for their Beliefs, brought to exist as a place where people live by Belief in the evolution of their Higher Selves-constantly evolving toward a completion of their chosen destiny-all with strength in the denial of "System Beliefs"-the very Beliefs that amplify differences in and create rights, wrongs, judgements, and opinions of people, places, and things.

Awesome thread! I think i just lost the last half hour of my life somewhere within these muddled wise words.
And so:

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."
~ Ernest Hemingway

I see the beginning of this quote a lot, but everybody seems to neglect its ending. Personally, i think the ending strengthens the beginning. It surmises and unites the human spirit and gives hope to those who are now 'strong at the broken places'.

“It can be difficult to leave a long-term relationship, even when our inner-wisdom tells us it's time to let go. At this point, we can choose let go and endure the intense pain of leaving behind the familiar to make way for a new chapter in our life. Or we can stay and suffer a low-grade pain that slowly eats away at our heart and soul, like an emotional cancer. Until we wake up, one day and realize, we are buried so deep in the dysfunction of the relationship that we scarcely remember who we were and what we wanted and needed to be.”

Not at all. (And you're right, she would make Josi a great avatar.)   :-)

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.”
