    Please share a favorite quote

    A response in another forum mde me think it would be great to share any favorite quote(s) you may have. Hope others share!

    I keep a journal of them, constantly adding to them. When I need comfort, inspiration, motivation, or other, I take it out.

    Here is one that I use to remind myself I have a lot of control over the type of life I live. It really helps me when I need an attitude adjustment.

                I thought I would share a few more. All of what I am posting has been part of the transformation I have experienced.

                "Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path."

                "You yourself are your own obstacle...Rise above yourself." Hafiz

                "Life is a balance of holding on and letting go."

                "When all else fails turn up the music and dance with your dog."

                "A grateful heart sees through the eyes of the soul."

                  I’m in ❤️ with this thread! Here are a few of my favorites...

                  “Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow.” -Vincent Van Gogh

                  “Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” —Edgar Allen Poe.

                  “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” -Rabindranath Tagore

                  "You get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place. Like you'll not only miss the people you love, but you'll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you'll never be this way ever again." - Azar Nafasi

                  “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” -Edgar Allan Poe

                  “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” —Buddha

                  “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” -Dr. Robert Schuller

                  “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

                  “If you want happiness for an hour – take a nap. If you want happiness for a day – go fishing. If you want happiness for a year – inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a life time – help someone else.” – Chinese proverb



                  There are so many more quotes that I love, but will have to come back to this later. Bedtime for me!

                    If you can't fly, run.
                    If you can't run, walk.
                    If you can't walk, crawl...
                    but by all means, KEEP MOVING!

                      Thanks Seesha, Snoopy, ladybug, and Tawanda!

                      Some simple, some deep, and in between. Always looking for new quotes to add to my journal and have found a few.

                      Hope they keep coming.👍

                        Hi pennstater,

                        After all thats been said in many threads lately, this thread is welcome.

                        And with that fresh in my mind:

                        "We are our choices." - Jean-Paul Sartre

                        Jer

                        Oh! ...and the classic (also from Dr. Seuss BTW)....

                        "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

                          "There are two core fears: Losing what you have and not getting what you want. There is one solution: falling in love where you are." Jeff Foster

                          "Life doesn't get easier or more forgiving; we just get stronger and more resilient." Steve Maraboli

                          "Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it." Ann Landers

                          "Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know." Pema Chodron (when the same issues/problems keep coming up that means we have not learned what we need to. Once we "get it" the issue/problem goes away and does not keep cycling back).

                              pennstater, your thread was such a good idea...thank you I live in a very different state of mind than even a year ago. The quotes I and others are posting is so much part of my "real life" and it feels good to share this with others.

                              “Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” Marianne Williamson
