Shel Silverstein
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
Shel Silverstein

William Shakespeare
“We know what we are, but not what we may be.”
William Shakespeare

George Saunders
“Don't be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.”
George Saunders, The Braindead Megaphone

Haruki Murakami
“Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.”
Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

Erin Morgenstern
“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Nicholas Sparks
“It is the possibility that keeps me going, and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.”
Nicholas Sparks

Søren Kierkegaard
“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!”
Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Dean Koontz
“Even as a child, she had preferred night to day, had enjoyed sitting out in the yard after sunset, under the star-speckled sky listening to frogs and crickets. Darkness soothed. It softened the sharp edges of the world, toned down the too-harsh colors. With the coming of twilight, the sky seemed to recede; the universe expanded. The night was bigger than the day, and in its realm, life seemed to have more possibilities.”
Dean Koontz, Midnight

You can't take the sky from me.
“You can't take the sky from me.”
Joss Whedon

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

D.T. Suzuki
“Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.”
D.T. Suzuki

Steve Maraboli
“This new day has greeted us with no rules; unconditional opportunity. Do not dilute the power of this new day with the hardship of yesterday. Greet this day the way it has greeted you; with open arms and endless possibility.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Shannon L. Alder
“When you see people only as personalities, rather than souls with life missions to fulfill, you forever limit the growth and possibilities of what God has in store for another person.”
Shannon L. Alder

Umberto Eco
“Show not what has been done, but what can be. How beautiful the world would be if there were a procedure for moving through labyrinths.”
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose

Pablo
“Write this down: My life is full of unlimited possibilities.”
Pablo

Mira Grant
“Nothing is impossible to kill. It's just that sometimes after you kill something you have to keep shooting it until it stops moving”
Mira Grant, Feed

James E. Faust

James E. Faust

Amit Ray

Amit Ray, Nonviolence: The Transforming Power

Aristotle
“With respect to the requirement of art, the probable impossible is always preferable to the improbable possible.”
Aristotle, Poetics

Joan Didion
“I remember walking across Sixty-second Street one twilight that first spring, or the second spring, they were all alike for a while. I was late to meet someone but I stopped at Lexington Avenue and bought a peach and stood on the corner eating it and knew that I had come out out of the West and reached the mirage. I could taste the peach and feel the soft air blowing from a subway grating on my legs and I could smell lilac and garbage and expensive perfume and I knew that it would cost something sooner or later—because I did not belong there, did not come from there—but when you are twenty-two or twenty-three, you figure that later you will have a high emotional balance, and be able to pay whatever it costs. I still believed in possibilities then, still had the sense, so peculiar to New York, that something extraordinary would happen any minute, any day, any month.”
Joan Didion, Slouching Towards Bethlehem

William James
“We forget that every good that is worth possessing must be paid for in strokes of daily effort. We postpone and postpone until those smiling possibilities are dead... By neglecting the necessary concrete labor, by sparing ourselves the little daily tax, we are positively digging the graves of our higher possibilities.”
William James

China Miéville
“Any moment called now is always full of possibles.”
China Miéville, Kraken

E.A. Bucchianeri
“Ah, the magic of music, with it, all things are possible.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

Jodi Meadows
“Before I had a chance to feel too sorry for myself, I turned toward the front of the cabin and found the bookcases carved right into the wall. Hundreds of leather-bound volumes rested in dim alcoves. I had no idea what stories or information they held. It didn’t matter. I wanted to absorb anything they had to say.”
Jodi Meadows, Incarnate

Cormac McCarthy
“They rode out along the fenceline and across the open pastureland. The leather creaked in the morning cold. They pushed the horses into a lope. The lights fell away behind them. They rode out on the high prairie where they slowed the horses to a walk and the stars swarmed around them out of the blackness. They heard somewhere in that tenantless night a bell that tolled and ceased where no bell was and they rode out on the round dais of the earth which alone was dark and no light to it and which carried their figures and bore them up into the swarming stars so that they rode not under but among them and they rode at once jaunty and circumspect, like thieves newly loosed in that dark electric, like young thieves in a glowing orchard, loosely jacketed against the cold and ten thousand worlds for the choosing.”
Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

Belsebuub
“There is far more spiritual potential within than most people realize. The potential is so great that to define it in words would be impossible.”
Belsebuub, Gazing Into the Eternal: Reflections Upon a Deeper Purpose to Living

Melissa Landers
“She had no idea what the future would hold for any of them, beyond possibilities as infinite as the stars.

And really, that was enough.”
Melissa Landers, Starflight

L.J. Smith
“Each of them had done their best. Matt was still his friend. For Meredith, maybe the day would come when she could look at him and not think “inhuman” — or at least not think it immediately and constantly. Maybe Bonnie, the moth, would be able to stay away from the unholy flame. Now, there was something to worry about. He could all too easily see Bonnie taking a walk on the very wild side with Damon. His brother had a soft spot for her already, she knew. But if either of them had a problem, he already knew what he had to do to find a plan for a solution.

Just look up.”
L.J. Smith, The Vampire Diaries: Blood Will Tell

Eileen Wilks
“Death cuts off possibilities. Even if they were possibilities you never meant to act on, it feels different
when they’re gone.”
Eileen Wilks, Mortal Ties
