My favourite five quotes:

One

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”
― Brené Brown

Two

“You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.”
― Brené Brown

Three

“Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together.”
― Brené Brown

Four

“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

Five

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.”
― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
