Sarah Ban Breathnach
“Usually, when the distractions of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to contemplate what's working and what's not, so that we can make changes for the better. (January 17)”
Sarah Ban Breathnach, Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy

Graham Greene
“So much in writing depends on the superficiality of one's days. One may be preoccupied with shopping and income tax returns and chance conversations, but the stream of the unconscious continues to flow undisturbed, solving problems, planning ahead: one sits down sterile and dispirited at the desk, and suddenly the words come as though from the air: the situations that seemed blocked in a hopeless impasse move forward: the work has been done while one slept or shopped or talked with friends.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

“All of us,' he said, 'have hopes of being poet, artist, discoverer, philospoher, scientist; of possessing the attributes of all these simultaneously. Few are permitted to achieve any of them in daily life. But in travel we attain them all. Then we have our day of glory, when all our dreams come true, when we can be anything we like, as long as we like, and, when we are tired of it, pull up stakes and move on. Travel -- the solitude of the mountains, the emptiness of the desert, the delicacy of the minaret; eternal change, limitless contrast, unending variety.' (Eric Lang)”
Robert Edison Fulton Jr., One Man Caravan

“Ia tidak ingin mendengarnya. Ia tidak mau mengakuinya, tetapi jauh di dalam lubuk hatinya ia tahu ia merasakan hal itu. Tetapi itu perasaan terlarang baginya. Ia tidak boleh merasakannya. Tidak boleh memikirkannya. Lebih mudah bersikap seolah-olah perasaan itu tidak nyata. Jadi itulah yang ia lakukan.”
Ilana Tan, Sunshine Becomes You

Robert Musil
“A man going quietly about his business all day long expends far more muscular energy than an athlete who lifts a huge weight once a day. This has been proved physiologically, and so the social sum total of everybody's little everyday efforts, especially when added together, doubtless releases far more energy into the world than do rare heroic feats. This total even makes the single heroic feat look positively minuscule, like a grain of sand on a mountaintop with a megalomaniacal sense of its own importance.”
Robert Musil, The Man Without Qualities Vol. 1: A Sort of Introduction and Pseudo Reality Prevails

Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

“Everyday, in our quest to grab the new, the trendy, the coolest stuff, we forget to use the old and our daily lives become stuck in the vicious cycle, chasing after stuff without working the old. Today, pause, slow down, take time, revisit those lessons, materials and take the necessary baby-steps. It pays. Go, make it happen!”
Bernard Kelvin Clive

All the rest hung on mere threads and trivial contingencies; you couldn't waste
