“One of the few things I know about writing is this:  Spend it all, shoot it, play it, lose it, all, right away, every time.  Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now.  The impulse to save something good for a better place later is the signal to spend it now.  Something more will arise for later, something better.  These things fill from behind, from beneath, like well water.  The impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive.  Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you.” ~ Annie Dillard, American Writer

“Children are born awesome. Our job as the adults in their lives is to make sure they know this and to minimize the effect of anyone who might influence them to feel otherwise. When children feel stupid, slow, naughty, troublesome, untrustworthy, incapable or silenced in response to the comments of any adult in their lives, it’s time for us to be their voice.” ~ Hey Sigmund, Good Men Project

“When we reach sixty-two, we are likely to interpret feelings of exhaustion and boredom as the signal to retire.  But couldn’t they just as easily be the call to reinvent ourselves?  As we age it seems harder and harder to let our authentic dharma reinvent us.  We imagine somehow that the risks are greater.  We tend to think that leaping off cliffs is for the young.  But no.  Actually – when better to leap off cliffs?” ~ Stephen Cope, The Great Work of Your Life

“You cannot be anyone you want to be.  Your one and only shot at a fulfilled life is being yourself – whoever that is.  Furthermore, at a certain age it finally dawns on us that, shockingly, no one really cares what we’re doing with our life.  This is a most unsettling discovery to those of us who have lived someone else’s dream and eschewed our own: No one really cares except us.  When you scratch the surface, you finally discover that it doesn’t really matter a whit who else you disappoint if you’re disappointing yourself.  The only question that makes sense to ask is: Is your life working for you?” ~ Stephen Cope, The Great Work of Your Life

“I know people who have been stuck in doubt their entire lifetime.  Each of these unfortunate individuals – some of them my very own friends and family – came at some point to a crossroads.  They came to this crossroads and found themselves rooted there, with one foot firmly planted on each side of the intersection.  Alas, they never moved off the dime.  They procrastinated.  Dithered.  Finally, they put a folding chair smack in the center of that crossroads and lived there for the rest of their lives.  After a while, they forgot entirely that there even was a crossroads – forgot that there was a choice.” ~ Stephen Cope, The Great Work of Your Life
