'I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.'

'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'

'I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.'

'I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'

Maya Angelou

"The hero's journey always begins with the call. One way or another, a guide must come to say, 'Look, you're in Sleepy Land. Wake. Come on a trip. There is a whole aspect of your consciousness, your being, that's not been touched. So you're at home here? Well, there's not enough of you there.' And so it starts." ~ Joseph Campbell

"You can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs." ~ Joseph Campbell

As far as service goes, it can take the form of a million things. To do service, you don't have to be a doctor working in the slums for free, or become a social worker. Your position in life and what you do doesn't matter as much as how you do what you do. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross


"Real power is measured by how much you can let things be." ~ Thoreau


"There is more to life than increasing its speed." ~ Gandhi

Beware dysfunctional independence—a mental state that, in the name of freedom, leaves you feeling less open and less connected to the world you live in.

re: Quotable Quotes Part 6

My crown is in my heart, not on my head;
Not decked with diamonds and Indian stones,
Nor to be seen: my crown is called content:
A crown it is that seldom kings enjoy.
