A Quote by Marianne Williamson

As children, we were taught to be 'good' boys and girls, which of course implies we were not that already. We were taught we're good if we clean up our room, or we're good if we make good grades. Very few of us were taught that we're essentially good. Very few of us were given a sense of unconditional approval, a feeling that we're precious because of what we are, not what we do.
