Another Awesome Quote on Being an Example

“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

-Marianne Williamson's A Return to Love

PS - Thanks for the correction, A

I was about to answer it with another similar quote but that feels strangely competitive on a blog.

This one makes me think of two things. 1) Allow other people to love and/or be happy for you. 2) Allow yourself to love and/or be happy for others without conditions.

Feel like that's where it all begins. Jealousy (at another's fortune) or guilt and dissatisfaction (at one's own fortune) cut at people's psyches as if they're migraines.

Actually, this quote is from Marianne Williamson's book A Return to Love. It's often mistakenly attributed to Nelson Mandala.
