Quotables XXVI


"Thought is cause: experience is effect.  If you don't like the effects in your life, you have to change the nature of your thinking."Marianne Williamson

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. Fear of the unknown is our greatest fear. Many of us would enter a tiger's lair before we would enter a dark cave. While caution is a useful instinct, we lose many opportunities and much of the adventure of life if we fail to support the curious explorer within us."Joseph Campbell


"Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion:
The potential for greatness lives within each of us."-Wilma Rudolph

"Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors.
Try to be better than yourself. "William Faulkner

Quotables XXIV


"If you listen closely you'll hear a small voice hidden in the dim shade of all your fears that whispers, 'this isn't real.'"Jackson Kiddard, author and polymath.

"As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect. Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right."Jack Canfield, is the best-selling author of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

“Anything that looks like chaos and calamity in your life is just the Universe’s way of saying ‘Trust me and we’ll make a life together that is beyond your wildest dreams.’ The key is to trust. There’s a bigger vision and purpose inside you that your small brain or Ego can imagine. The Universe has bigger and better plans for you. It’s your job to be of service and not get in your own way. You can only receive what you believe. When you trust you open yourself up to greater possibilities outside of your control or imagination. So what’s it gunna be? Fear or trust?”Anon

Quotables XXIII


"Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It's a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got."Steven Pressfield, is a best-selling author. This quote is taken from his short and perfect book The War of Art.


"Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. And the faith to trust our own admission. The admitting is often very difficult. What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us."Julia Cameron, is an American teacher, author, artist, poet, playwright, novelist, filmmaker, composer, and journalist. She is perhaps most famous for her book The Artist's Way.
