A Quote by Michelle Skye on brigid, candlemas, fire, goddess, healing, imbolc, imbolg, inspiration, light, mind, soul, transformation, and quickening

Brigid has been known by many names: Brigit, Brig, Bride, Brigantia, Saint Brigid, and Mary of the Gael.  But no name encapsulates her personality as well as the term Breo Saighead (or Breo Aigit), meaning "fiery arrow or power."  Although this term was thought to be the root source of Brigid's name (as stated in the ninth-century book Cormac' Glossary), modern scholars have proven this early etymology to be based on folk legends and rumors rather than on scholarly sources.  Yet the term Breo Saighead will not go away.  It remains with this powerful triple goddess of the fire, as she inspires, transforms, and heals.  Brigid is the force behind grand ideas and simple comforts.  She is direct, quick, enlightening, and enlivening.  She is the shaft of lightning or the glowing candle that illuminates our world.  Fast, furious, bold, and strong, she arrives quickly and departs just as fast, leaving behind a brighter mind or soul or heart.  Brigid's gifts lie not in what she brings to you, but rather in casting light on what you can bring to the world.

A Quote by Saint Alexandra, Tsaritsa and New M on god, word, speech, kindness, adage, love, encouragement, inspiration, soul, and help

We must see to it that our pleasing of others always ministers to their good in some way, edifies them, adds something to their character, and makes them braver, truer, and happier.  The world is full of discouraged people, and we have the power to say a hopeful word or do a kindness which will drive the discouragement from their hearts and move them again, with strength for brave, victorious, and songful living.  Love is the greatest thing in the world.  We are to see to it that everything we do and every influence of our life shall be for our neighbor's good.  We are bound so to live that we shall do hurt to none, but shall edify---add something to the life of everyone.

Inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic energy striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time.
