Famous Quote:
Whole-heartedness is a precious gift, but no one can actually give it to you.
You have to find the path that has heart and then walk it impeccably….It’s like someone laughing in your ear, challenging you to figure out what to do when you don’t know what to do.
It humbles you.
It opens your heart.
