1994 Inaugural Speech, Quoting Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are we not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that
Other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It ‘s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
Give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated form our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
