Sunday Quotes – Journey

A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.

John Steinbeck

Sometimes we make the process more complicated than we need to. We will never make a journey of a thousand miles by fretting about how long it will take or how hard it will be. We make the journey by taking each day step by step and then repeating it again and again until we reach our destination.

Joseph B. Wirthlin

Life is a journey and it’s about growing and changing and coming to terms with who and what you are and loving who and what you are.

Kelly McGillis

I think a spiritual journey is not so much a journey of discovery. It’s a journey of recovery. It’s a journey of uncovering your own inner nature. It’s already there.

Billy Corgan

Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to.

John Ed Pearce

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.

Henry Van Dyke

Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness.  Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace.

Vernon Baker

I feel like I’ve never had a home, you know? I feel related to the country, to this country, and yet I don’t know exactly where I fit in… There’s always this kind of nostalgia for a place, a place where you can reckon with yourself.

Sam Shepard

We each need to make peace with our own memories. We have all done things that make us flinch.

Surya Das

The man with a clear conscience probably has a poor memory.

T.G.I.F. Thank God I’m Fabulous!

 Inc.com had an article at the beginning of 2015 that lists 57 ways to make 2015 fabulous. I know we are all fabulous but there are times we get too busy or too tired and we forget how wonderful and extraordinary we are! Here’s a few things to help remind us of what we can do to make 2015 (and beyond) fabulous.

 

  • Realign your plans regularly. You’ll make better decisions if you know how the actions you’re taking will help you achieve your long-term plans and goals.
  • Rebalance your workload. If you must do A,B,C and D, and there’s only time to do three of the four, delegate or ignore the task that you can’t accomplish.
  • Record good memories. When you experience a special moment, capture it on your phone or your journal. Or both.
  • Refuse to be “stressed”. Rather than use the word “stress” when you’re busy or under pressure, use words that will motivate you like “excited” or “energized.”
  • Relax for 5 minutes. No matter how much pressure you feel at work, you’ll get more done if you set work aside five minutes every hour.

 

Sunday Quotes – Friends

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it is a comfort to go hand in hand.

Emily Kimbrough

We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

Dinah Craik

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Henri Nouwen

Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.

Terry Pratchett

Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.

Maria Montessori

I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.

J.G. Ballard

Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worth while.

L.M. Montgomery

Sunday Quotes – Moon

I’ve never seen a moon in the sky that, if it didn’t take my breath away, at least misplaced it for a moment.

Colin Farrell

Tell me what you feel in your room when the full moon is shining in upon you and your lamp is dying out, and I will tell you how old you are, and I shall know if you are happy.

Henri Frederic Amiel

You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it’s like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos.

Tom Hanks

The moon puts on an elegant show, different every time in shape, colour and nuance.

Arthur Smith
