I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.
~ Dawna Markova
“If you are afraid to write or edit or assemble or disassemble, you are merely a spectator. And you are trapped, trapped by the instructions of those you’ve chosen to follow. Twenty people in the field and eighty thousand in the stands. The spectators are the ones who paid to watch, but it’s the player on the field who are truly alive.” ~ Seth Godin, The Icarus Deception
“In life you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load. When you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with.” ~ Brian Tracy
“We are not here merely to make a living. We are here to enrich the world with a finer spirit of hope and achievement- and we impoverish ourselves if we forget the errand.” ~ Woodrow Wilson
“Have faith in yourself. But have faith in your friends and neighbors, too. I know life is competitive- but it isn’t a jungle. Like begets like. Faith inspires faith. People give back substantially what we give them.“ ~ Bethany College
Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.
“Tomorrow and plans for tomorrow can have no significance at all unless you are in full contact with the reality of the present, since it is in the present and only in the present that you live. There is no other reality than present reality, so that, even if one were to live for endless ages, to live for the future would be to miss the point everlastingly.” ~ Alan Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity
“If you’re the kind of person who has no guts, you just give up every time life pushes you. If you’re that kind of person, you’ll live all your life playing it safe, doing the right things, saving yourself for something that never happens. Then, you die a boring old man.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad
“I’ve learned that, without a strong reason or purpose, anything in life is hard.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad
“The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
