thank you for sharing this quote jeff.

“Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.

Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.” -Henry Miller

from malloreigh’s lj: ‘go to this website and refresh until you find five quotations that speak your truth.’ [i cheated and picked six.]

He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals. -Benjamin Franklin

The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself. -Alan Alda [this is one i need to work on.]

One thing I’ve learned in all these years is not to make love when you really don’t feel it; there’s probably nothing worse you can do to yourself than that. -Norman Mailer

Conscience is the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking. -H. L. Mencken
