    The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fibre and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing - John Muir

    Quote 2358

    Life has always seemed to me like a plant that lives oni ts rhizome. Its true life is invisible, hidden in the rhizome. The part that lives above the ground lasts only a single summer....yet I have never lost a sense of something that lives and endures underneath the eternal flux.

    Quote 957

    There seems to be a distinct moment when consultants feel at home, when all anxiety ends and they step into a state of "flow". Five minutes earlier, we were nervously clutching at conversational straws. Now we are confidently asking questions, clarifying the scope of what needs to be done, making an impact. We have finally hit our stride - John Niland http:///
