    "People who are mean to themselves are superior to people who are mean to others..."
    Konfucius

    Guys, anyone out there with a more accurate translation? I just translated it from Greek and I'm not quite sure it's right...

    My husband just told me the right translation
    Superior people are bad to themselves, inferior people are bad to others

    Though I'm not sure if there is a better english translation...I wouldn't like it to resemble any quote about superiority of races and staff...

    “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” by Howard Thurman.



    It is all about becoming what you are rather than what people want. We often feel pressure from outside...to have what others have...to be what others expect...there are quite a few quotes with the same theme as the above, but this is the one that I like right now.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I'm a good writer, am I not? Though, I should say I'm a good plagiarist; there was this quote, I can't remember by whom that went on like this
    Don't ... when you can do ... Don't ... when you can do.
    So, I stole it and made it a dance quote!!!Hi Hi Hi I'm a bit naughty:evil:

    hmm Marshall Rosenberg says somehing similar..

    Rosenberg: "What? Empathy? In empathy, you don't speak at all. You speak with the eyes. You speak with the body. If you say any words at all, it's because you are not sure you are with the person. So you may say some words. But the words are not empathy. Empathy is when the other person feels the connection to with what's alive in you.
