It’s fun to learn new things about ourselves. For me, I’ve recently been learning that I like quotes. Okay, so that’s a bit under-stated…I love quotes! Why didn’t I see this before? You would think that when one gets goosebumps and feels their spirit lift that they would recognize they love what they’re partaking in. And no, it’s not because I’m drinking coffee…although that gives me great feelings as well.
So now that we’ve learned that I love quotes, I’m going to let you in on the fact that what I love even more is to share quotes with others. With that in mind, there is little more that needs to be said except to share here with you, today’s quotes that have touched, encouraged, and brought a sweet laughter and peace to my soul. I hope they do the same, and perhaps even more, for you. I would love to hear what you think of them and of any quotes that are special to you.
“…adventure is not made up of distant lands and mountaintops, rather it lies in one’s readiness to exchange the domestic hearth for an uncertain resting place.” ~ Reinhold Messner, Free Spirit
“This is the best way to act: Talk a great deal to me (God). Let others talk a great deal to you, appreciating everything fine they say and neglecting their mistakes.” ~ page 66 in “Letters by a Modern Mystic” by Frank Laubach
“I choose another road for myself. I choose to look at people through God, using God as my glasses, colored with his love for them.” ~ page 71 in “Letter by a Modern Mystic” by Frank Laubach
“You are a part of a great purpose and I think until you realize that, you won’t be able to get rid of your past. Today is a gift. That is why it is called the present. Live in it; it has a lot to offer you (psst – healing is one of those things).” ~ dear personal friend , Camilo Andres Bustos, on November 12, 2012
“You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm!” ~ Colette
