Quotations Supporting Healing

Consistent with the purpose of this web site and my book of sharing our stories that support our mutual healing, I have included quotes from many leaders over the centuries that relate to this theme. I think the collective genius of all our voices combined begins to offer humanity new perspectives that were previously not so available for us to readily see. You may later choose to add your own favorites to our healing literature blog. Enjoy.
