I love finding, and memorizing when I can, inspiring quotations. I write many of them on the walls of our bathroom–the Walls of Inspiration:). Comforting friends and sparks to a lot of my work, here are a few:
“Where there is great love, there are always miracles.”–Willa Cather
“You just have to get crazier.”–Pina Bausch
“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”–Og Mandino
“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you was?”–Sachel Paige
“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” ~Anne Lamott
“Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.”~Buddha
“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches…to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place.”–Rainer Maria Rilke
“The world won’t step into its greatness until we step into ours.” –Marianne Williamson
“Success is moving from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”–Winston Churchill
“Hard times require furious dancing.”–Alice Walker
“You suppose that you are the trouble,
But you are the cure.
You suppose that you are the lock on the door,
But you are the key that opens it.
It’s too bad that you want to be someone else;
You don’t see your own face, your own beauty.
Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours.”–Rumi
