Brilliant quotes

Great quotes can inspire you, make you laugh, make you think. I have a few that I keep coming back to when I need to step outside myself, or when I just need a kick up the arse.

‘Learn to feed the true parts of yourself on a daily basis, even the parts you don’t like. If those parts hurt yourself or hurt others, learn to feed them safely in your own time.

First, those true parts must be recognised and accepted.’
