re: Quotable Quotes Part 6

We're all creatures of habit. Repeat an action enough times and it becomes habitual — an unconscious behavior. Here's a worthwhile habit to work on developing: Each day, "catch" at least one person doing something good…and praise them. Over time, you'll acquire a natural tendency to focus on the good stuff!

The best way to travel from a state of nervousness to a more natural one is to completely understand the situation. In other words, make the unknown known.

"The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keep out the joy." ~ Jim Rohn

"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings." ~ Anaïs Nin

A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

A neurosis is a secret that you don't know you are keeping.

A man might pass for insane who should see things as they are.
William Ellery Channing

I feel like a fugitive from the law of averages.

re: Quotable Quotes Part 6

So it is too that in the eyes of the world it is dangerous to venture. And why? Because one may lose. But not to venture is shrewd. And yet, by not venturing, it is so dreadfully easy to lose that which it would be difficult to lose in even the most venturesome venture, and in any case never so easily, so completely as if it were nothing . . . one?s self.


~ Kierkegaard, The Sickness Unto Death (1849)
