Thinkers

You’re told that you’re in your head too much, a phrase that’s often deployed against the quiet and cerebral. Or maybe there’s another word for such people: thinkers.

Two things

Two things to remember in life: Take care of your thoughts when you are alone, and take care of your words when you are with people.

 

~Zig Ziglar

Your stroy

It’s important that we share our experiences with other people. Your story will heal you, and your story will heal somebody else. When you tell your story you free yourself, and you give other people permission to acknowledge their story as well.

 

~Iyanla Vanzant

The stars

You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night…You – only you – will have stars that can laugh.

 

~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The secret

Last night, in private, I asked the wise old man to reveal to me the secret of the world.
Softly he whispered, ‘Hush!’ in my ear.
‘It’s something you learn, not words you can hear.”

 

~Rumi

Follow your bliss

Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.

 

~Joseph Campbell

Solitude

What is necessary, after all, is only this: solitude, vast inner solitude. To walk inside yourself and meet no one for hours—that is what you must be able to attain.

 

~Rainer Maria Rilke
