Quotes I come across -


As I browse back through journals and such, I come across quotes that have meaning for me.  Here are a few.

Anais Nin

    And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
       was more painful that the risk it took to blossom. 




Van Gogh

    There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.




Christopher Morley in The Haunted Bookshop

    It's a good idea to turn your mind upside down now and then, like an hour glass,
       to let the particles run the other way.




Walt Whitman

    The world will be complete for him who himself is complete.





Simone Weil

    Absolute attention is Prayer!




Goethe

    Once you commit to something, life moves in ways you never could have imagined.




Emily Dickinson

    To live is so startling it leaves but little time for other occupations.

Rumi

    This time when you and I sit here,
       two figures with one soul,
          we're a garden,
             with plants and birdsong moving through us
                      like rain.
