Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once (s)he grows up.
Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live it's whole life believing that it is stupid.
It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
Until a lion has a historian, the hunter will always be a hero
It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work.
And that when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
When we recognise the unity of all living things, then at once arises the question - how can we support this life of ours with least injury to the lives around us; how can we prevent our own life adding to the suffering of the world in which we live?
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
New Beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.
No person is your friend who demands your silence or denies your right to grow.
Load the ship and set out. Now one knows for certain whether the vessel will sink or reach the harbour. Cautious people say "I'll do nothing until I'm sure." Merchants know better. If you do nothing you lose. Don't be one of those merchants who won't risk the ocean.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to find all barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
None but ourselves can free our own mind.
If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step. you know it is not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.
Fall seven times, stand up eight.
There is a vitality,
a life force,
that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.
And If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost.
The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine
how good it is
nor how valuable it is
nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly
to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate YOU.
Keep the channel open...
No artist is pleased...
There is no satisfaction whatever at anytime
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction
a blessed unrest that keeps us marching
and makes "us" MORE alive than the others.
MARTHA GRAHAM (A Letter to Agnes De Mille)
"Let's drink that every nation
Will live to see that bright day's birth
When "neath" the sun's rotation
Dissent is banished from the earth.
All will be
DR. FRANCE PRESEREN
I feel that we should not only maintain gentle, peaceful relations with our fellow human beings but also that is very important to extend the same kind of attitude toward the natural environment.
Strength does not come from winning
Your struggles develop your strength.
When you go through hardship
and decide not to surrender,
that is strength.
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours,
and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place in the family of things.
The lesson of the falling leaves
the leaves believe
such letting go is love
such love is faith
such faith is grace
such grace is God
i agree with the leaves
Some (wo)men see things as they are and ask why?
I dream things that never were and say why not.
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
