Every person, once they enter your dream, is a part of you. In order to love everyone in the entire world, the only leap of faith you need to take is that you yourself are worthy of love. — Steve Daniels
You'll find your spark to be a reliable guide. And it will guide you not from fear or greed but from a place of love—discovering new connections where you once saw divisions and beauty where you once saw banality. And the boundaries of your identity will start to rearrange themselves into the shape of your heart. — Steve Daniels
