Below are some life changing quotes that I love.
What in your life is calling you?
When all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the list laid aside
and the wild iris blooms by itself
in the dark forest
what still pulls on your soul?
~The Terma Collective
“…the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.” ~W.H. Murray
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.” ~Maya Angelou
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly…
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
“Inside of you there’s an artist you don’t know about..Say yes quickly, if you know, if you’ve known it from before the beginning of the universe.” ~Rumi
“Children, like animals, use all their senses to discover the world. Then artists come along and discover it the same way, all over again.” ~Eudora Welty
“The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. See, therefore, not to find out Who You Are, seek to determine Who You Want to Be.” ~Neal Donald Walsch
“The openness to begin is all the openness required to have each day. We start today, and tomorrow we start again, and the day after we start again as we will the day after that. In this way does our journey come to us. We begin. The rest unfolds through us.” ~Julia Caomeron
“It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance, and I know of no substitute for the force and beauty of its process.” ~Henry James
“Good dogs are with us for a little while to teach us how to love like it’s our job…because it is.” ~Unknown
“Dogs have a way of finding the people that need them…Filling an emptiness we don’t even know we have” ~Thorn Jones
“The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog..He will sleep on this cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his mater’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world..wWehn all other friends desert, he remains. ~George G. Vets
“Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big.” ~Unknown
