Let’s break up the work week.
Share one of your favorite quotes with us. It could be from a movie, poem, song or even something you wrote.
I’ll start with one I wrote earlier on my Twitter page:
“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.”
~ Havelock Ellis

alright, one more."You are Life passing through your body, passing through your mind, passing through your soul. Once you find that out, not with logic, not with the intellect, but because you can feel that Life – you find out that you are the force that makes the flowers open and close, that makes the hummingbird fly from flower to flower. You find out that you are in every tree, and you are in every animal, vegetable, and rock. You are that force that moves the wind and breathes through your body. The whole universe is a living being that is moved by that force, and that is what you are. You are Life."- Don Miguel Ruiz
"Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, “This is what I need.” It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge. If you bring love to that moment- not discouragement- you will find the strength there. Any disaster you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures, followed by wreckage, were the incidents that shaped the life you have now. You’ll see this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit strength, it comes."~ Joseph Campbell
"Love sweetens life and life, sometimes destroys love."-John Adams"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."-Dorothy Parker"After all my erstwhile dear,My no longer cherished Need we say it was not love,Just because it perished?"-Edna St. Vincent Millay(Couldn't pick just one.)
