 "Positive emotions flood our brains 

with dopamine and serotonin, chemicals that not only make us feel good, but dial up the learning centers of our brains to higher levels. They help us organize new information, keep that information in the brain longer, and retrieve it faster later on. And they enable us to make and sustain more neural connections, which allows us to think more quickly and creatively, become more skilled at complex analysis and problem solving, and see and invent new ways of doing things."

It must be taut and vibrating

"When our whole world shrinks down 

to just ourselves, the smallest problems 

or reversals of fortunes throw us. But 

when we widen the circle of our concern,

 we’re less concerned with the self — we’re less narcissistic, we have more perspective, 

we’re more empathetic, and more grateful. 

That has huge consequences — making us 

much more effective at dealing with stress, 

anxiety and even depression."


—Arianna Huffington

"We don't see  

things as they are,

                                                                                          drifting up 

 into old aspen trees — 

the sound of checkers




                   —Robert M. Hopkins

 "A mind that is stretched 

by new experiences will never go back 

   to its old dimensions." 


—Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr
