Don’t dwell on those who let you down; cherish those who hold you up.
And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky.
The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.
— Barbara Hall
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.
— Norman Maclean
The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
— Mitch Albom
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
— Khalil Gibran
What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water – the rivers, lakes, and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being.
— Ganga White
I AM: two of the most powerful of words; for what you put after them shapes your reality. We tend to believe what we are repeatedly told. What you say about yourself impacts not only who you are, but who you can become. Be kind, be aspirational, be tough when needed. I AM: Fit. Focused. Fearless.
A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he be at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.
— Abraham Maslow
If you dream the proper dreams, and share the myths with people, they will want to grow up to be like you.
— Ray Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012)
