For there to be rainbows the eyes must have tears!
For those that share there is always enough
But for the greedy
there's never enough
Learning to walk sets you free.
Learning to dance gives you the greatest freedom of all:
to express with your whole self the person you are.
- Melissa Hayden
Life is ten percent what you make it
and ninety percent how you take it.
- Ben Franklin
Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.
It is not what you are, nor what you have been
that God sees with his all-merciful eyes, but what you desire to be.
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.- Jonathan Swift
Understanding means seeing that the same thing said different ways
is the same thing. - Ludwig Wittgenstein
If the heart is empty, the rest will soon abandon you too.
- Arabic proverb
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day
and think it is forever.
Grace is God reaching down
Faith is man reaching up!
I never saw a wild thing
Sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead
From a bough
Without ever having felt sorry for itself.
— D. H. Lawrence
"Survival of The Fittest"
Even a tree
must struggle to survive,
tossed and torn
in the wind and rain,
yet it grows stronger
and begins to thrive,
for all its pain.
- Susan Maree Jeavons
Follow your dream!
Unless it's the one where you're at work in your underwear
during a fire drill.
There is a wonderful mythical law of nature
that the three things we crave most in life -
happiness, freedom, and peace of mind -
are always attained by giving them to someone else.
We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.
The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence.
When mindfulness embraces those we love,
they will bloom like flowers.
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Dance – an art form.
The body – an instrument.
Learn to play the instrument and master the art form.
- Debbie Dee
Each time I touch a rose petal
and breathe the sweet fragrance it brings
I know there's a God up in heaven
no human could create these things.
- Jean Chapel
A baby will make love stronger,
days shorter, nights longer,
bankroll smaller, home happier,
the past forgotten,
and the future worth living for.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
Never approach a bull from the front,
a horse from the rear,
or a fool from any direction.
- Cowboy wisdom
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
- Leonardo da Vinci
Rules are for the guidance of wise men and obedience of fools
- Frank Devine
Foolish is he who declares "no one is perfect",
for this implies he knows enough about perfection
to know what is or is not perfect.
Most people are other people.
Their thoughts are someone elses opinions,
their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
- Oscar Wilde
I learned that you can understand people
better if you look at them - no
matter how old or important
or impressive they may be - as if they are children.
For most men never mature, they simply grow taller.
- Leo Rosten
Unless there is within us that which is above us,
we shall soon yield to that which is about us.
Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.
Being alert is a prime requisite.
If nothing else my cat's alert,
ears scanning, twitching
with every sound,
as we must always be
to be whole
and true and free.
Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.
- T.S. Eliot
People demand the freedom of speech
to make up for the freedom of thought they avoid
When we come to the edge of the light we know,
and are about to step into the darkness of the unknown, of this we can be sure
God will either provide something solid for us to stand on or....
we will be taught to fly.
