    I really like this idea, where we could post something motivational or inspirational or simply just a thought for the day.

    I'll just add this quote to the mix.

    Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?

    Walk a mile in my shoes
    See what I see
    Hear what I hear
    Feel what I feel
    Then maybe youll understand why I do what I do.

    What about what Freire called a tragic dilemma for the oppressed - Idea

    " The oppressed suffer from duality... They discover that without freedom they cannot exist authentically. Yet altough they desire authentic existence, they fear it... The conflict lies in the choice between being wholly themselves or being divided...between human solidarity or alienation; between following prescriptions or having choices; between being spectators or actors...; between speaking out or being silent, castrated in their power to create and re-create, in their power to transform the world"

    I choose..
    to live by choice, not by chance
    to make changes, not excuse
    to be motivated, not manipulated
    to be useful not used;
    to excel, not compete
    I choose self-esteem, not self pity
    I choose to listen to my inner voices
    not to random opinion of other.
