Deep forest.
“Never go into the deep parts of the forest, for there are many dangers there, both dark and bright, and they will ensnare your soul.” ― Robert Beatty, Serafina and the Black Cloak
One challenge at a time.
“One challenge at a time, I try to turn into the face of fear and tell it “you are not my master, you are the product of my self and I am your master.” I look into the monster’s eyes until it disappears. Then I am free.” ― Rohvannyn Shaw
Allow the power to flow through you.
“Allow the power to flow through you. Don’t try to capture it. You wish only to borrow it.” ― G.G. Collins
Perfect faith.
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.” ― J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird
The deeper I go into myself.
“The deeper I go into myself the more I realize that I am my own enemy.” ― Floriano Martins
The fire.
“There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.” ― Vincent Van Gogh
