I am a quote junky. I love, love, LOVE quotes! They inspire me to reflect on my life-who I am, but most importantly who I am becoming. Quotes challenge me to live my life with intent (which is crazy hard some days) but at the same time to dance in the moment relishing my one wild life. Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.
Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.
Martin H. Fischer
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
It is only possible to live happily-ever-after on a day-to-day basis.
Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; But often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
When fear stops showing up so often in your life it's because you are nearing your true self.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.
Margaret Lee Runbeck
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.
One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Sometimes we give too much too soon. Sometimes we hold back for too long. This is our beautiful dance. Our imperfect dance. This is the dance that makes us human.
If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.
