It is quotes such as this one that stirs up excitement within me, the kind of quote that pushes me to become more than I am, to challenge what has become ordinary and to reach new limits of my being.
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless. Like water. If you put water in a bottle it becomes the bottle. If you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow…and water can crash. Be water my friend.”
~ Bruce Lee
I found this quote from one of my favourite blogs – The Better Man Project (clickable link).
Burn away worldly attachment
Crush its tendrils to make ink
Use its understanding, make love your pen
Nothing symbolises true equality better than sharing a meal.
I’ve been watching some stories on YouTube about Sikhism, more for knowledge about my roots than for religious reasons. Within any religion there are astute messages of Godliness, that is of peace and serenity. I want today to meditate.
Shame says that because I am flawed, I am unacceptable; Grace says that though I am flawed, I am cherished.
In the end only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of the things not meant for you.
There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
~ Jose N. Harris
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
~ Marcel Proust
