All animals, except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.
Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Give up yourself and you will find your real self. Lose your life and you will save it.
Success is a matter of making each failure a new starting point.
I should feel the air move against me, and feel the things I touched, instead of having only to look at them. I’m sure life is all wrong because it has become much too visual - we can neither hear nor feel nor understand, we can only see. I’m sure that is entirely wrong.
Sing your song. Dance your dance. Tell your tale.
I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.
If you don’t know what you want, you end up with a lot you don’t.
People must believe what they can, and those who believe more must not be hard upon those who believe less. I doubt if you would have believed it all yourself if you hadn’t seen some of it.
George MacDonald, The Princess and the Goblin
“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
~ Anais Nin
There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable.
Be careful when you cast out your demons that you don’t throw away the best of yourself.
