Wisdom & Inspiration

“What I take from writers I like is their economy — the ability to use language to very effective ends. The ability to have somebody read something and see it, or for somebody to paint an entire landscape of visual imagery with just sheets of words — that`s magical. That`s what I`ve been trying to strive for — to draw a clear picture, to open up a new dimension.” ~ Mos Def

I’ve come to believe that seeking happiness is not a frivolous pursuit. It’s honorable and necessary. And most people forget even to think about it.” ~ Goldie Hawn

“My life is like a stroll on the beach…as near to the edge as I can go.” ~ Thoreau

“It doesn’t matter who you love, or how you love, but that you love!” ~ Robert Browning

“What matters is how quickly you do what your soul wants.” ~ Rumi

“Loss is always gain in disguise.” ~ Julia Cameron

“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.” ~ Kahlil Gibran ♥

“Empathy is revolutionary.” ~ Jan Fonda

“Appreciate everything and everyone. Look upon every experience you’ve ever had, and everyone who’s ever played any role in your life, as having been sent to you for your benefit. In this universe, which was created by a divine, organizing intelligence, there are simply no accidents.”
~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

“A traveler am I , and a navigator, and everyday I discover a new region within my soul.” ~ Kahlil Gibran ♥

She flies with her own wings…

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin

‎”Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

“The winds that sometimes take something we love, are the same that bring us something we learn to love. Therefore we should not cry about something that was taken from us, but, yes, love what we have been given. Because what is really ours is never gone forever.” ~ Bob Marely

‎”Hardship may dishearten at first,
but every hardship passes away.
All despair is followed by HOPE,
all darkness is followed by sunshine.”
