Sunday Quotes – Discovery And Dreams

Over the years I have developed a picture of what a human being living humanely is like. She is a person who understands, values and develops her body, finding it beautiful and useful; a person who is real and is willing to take risks, to be creative, to manifest competence, to change when the situation calls for it, and to find ways to accommodate to what is new and different, keeping that part of the old that is still useful and discarding what is not.

I like dreams of the future better than the history of the past.

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.

Gloria Steinem



  1. I hate to say that lately I wonder what I’m fighting for.

    Eww. that sounded very negative didn’t it? I don’t meant that I’m giving up the fight..just not sure where I want to end up…or what is possible.

    My dreams of the past don’t seem to fit now. yet, perhaps they do? I’m just not sure any more.
    See the dilemma?

    I’m working on it. Trying to find a path.

    Your quotes, always give me something to think about.

  2. I know it sounds negative but I think it’s being honest because sometimes we spend so much time and energy fighting, whether it’s against the illnesses or for ourselves. We do what we can when we feel tired, weak, defeated and sick of being sick. We also, a lot of times, have to be an advocate for ourselves to be heard, recognized and even seen as someone with an illness.

    However, an illness isn’t the only thing that causes change. Life happens and plans, hopes and dreams change for us anyways as we grow and change. As “they” say, it’s the journey, not the destination. (Not that I’d wish a chronic illness added to anyone’s life, but you know what I mean about the journey.)
