Outright Solicitation

I am requesting any quotations you have found particularly uplifting, inspirational, insightful or just thought provoking. Erin left a comment with this excellent idea and I can’t help but steal it. I will compile them and take them with me.

    Heh, well here are some from my own list:

    "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." (George Bernard Shaw)

    "The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware." (Henry Miller)

    "Yes, I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight, and see the dawn before the rest of the world." (Oscar Wilde)

    "You may never know the result that comes from your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no result." (Gandhi)

    "Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something." (Thoreau)

    Hmmm... mostly writers. Can't tell I was an English major, huh? ;-)

    "A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for." -John Shedd

    "You must do the thing you think you cannot do." -Eleanor Roosevelt

    "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service of others." -Gandhi

    "This, too, shall pass." -Zen saying?


    p.s. thanks for the heads-up on the situation in Guyana. It doesn't look like anything that should affect the program.

    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breathe away.
