quote to live by

I just love love love this quote!! I have been collecting quotes for most of my life...I have notebooks filled with them. Somehow...great quotes seem to distill wisdom and grace and impart them on the reader in a matter of seconds...don't you think? Quotes have got me through some rough + tough times...sometimes when I  have been hanging on by a thread. They have also seen me through the most amazingly joyous celebrations and events. Do you have a fave. quote?

you are on earth.

we have that opportunity every day to make it "heaven" as well as we practice. I love this too.

read your post on the killing of girls, last week. I appreciate it. It keeps haunting me too.

Blessings to you and yours.

My fave quote is by a woman I admire...Amelia Earhart...

"Courage is the price life extracts for granting peace."

So many favorite quotes! I especially love to quote Henry David Thoreau & Emerson. A guiding quote for me is:

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." by Thoreau (of course!)

I've been planning to add quotes to my blog posts too. They can sum up such deep amazing thoughts often with just a few words.

Oh boy, like you, I have a collection and could never pick a favorite... so here's one I like that I read recently in Mark Nepo's Book of Awakening: "The art of freedom becomes the necessary adventure of grasping the secrets that are everywhere in the open and stirring their aspects within us, in such a way that we come alive..." (there's more but I hope you can get the gist!)

Please give the birthday girl a hug for me, OK??
