In the Spotlight: Loving Yourself

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within."
—Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

"To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself."
—Thich Nhat Hanh

"You can’t build joy on a feeling of self-loathing."
—Ram Dass

"Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
—Rumi, 13th-century Sufi poet
