    Anne Lamott
    “If you are a writer, or want to be a writer, this is how you spend your days--listening, observing, storing things away, making your isolation pay off. You take home all you've taken in, all that you've overheard, and you turn it into gold. (Or at least you try.)”
    Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

    Brian L. Weiss

    Brian Weiss, Messages from the Masters: Tapping Into the Power of Love

  • #7
    Steve Maraboli
    “One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, "I love you", "I'm sorry", "I appreciate you", "I'm proud of you"...whatever you're feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it...cause a smile today for someone else...and give plenty of hugs.”
    Steve Maraboli

  • #8
    Mother Teresa
    “A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, and must empty ourselves. Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in his love than in your weakness.”
    Mother Teresa

  • #9
    “One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don't leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”

  • #10
    David Mitchell
    “Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies, an' tho' a cloud's shape nor hue nor size don't stay the same, it's still a cloud an' so is a soul. Who can say where the cloud's blowed from or who the soul'll be 'morrow? Only Sonmi the east an' the west an' the compass an' the atlas, yay, only the atlas o' clouds.”
    David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

    George Alexiou
    “You and your purpose in life are the same thing. Your purpose is to be you.”
    George Alexiou

  • #12
    “Anyone who is having troubles should pray. Anyone who is happy should sing praises. Anyone who is sick should call the church's elders. They should pray for and pour oil on the person in the name of the Lord. And the prayer that is said with faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will heal that person. And if the person has sinned, the sins will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so God can heal you. When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:13-16)”
    Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

    Wayne W. Dyer
    “Make peace with silence, and remind yourself that it is in this space that you'll come to remember your spirit. When you're able to transcend an aversion to silence, you'll also transcend many other miseries. And it is in this silence that the remembrance of God will be activated.”
    Wayne W. Dyer

    Julia Cameron
    “You do not need to work to become spiritual. You are spiritual; you need only to remember that fact. Spirit is within you. God is within you. (67)”
    Julia Cameron, God is No Laughing Matter

    Sue Monk Kidd
    “The symbol of Goddess gives us permission. She teaches us to embrace the holiness of every natural, ordinary, sensual dying moment. Patriarchy may try to negate body and flee earth with its constant heartbeat of death, but Goddess forces us back to embrace them, to take our human life in our arms and clasp it for the divine life it is - the nice, sanitary, harmonious moment as well as the painful, dark, splintered ones.

    If such a consciousness truly is set loose in the world, nothing will be the same. It will free us to be in a sacred body, on a sacred planet, in sacred communion with all of it. It will infect the universe with holiness. We will discover the Divine deep within the earth and the cells of our bodies, and we will lover her there with all our hearts and all our souls and all our minds.”
    Sue Monk Kidd, The Dance of the Dissident Daughter

  • #16
    Richard Rohr
    “Christians are usually sincere and well-intentioned people until you get to any real issues of ego, control power, money, pleasure, and security. Then they tend to be pretty much like everybody else. We often given a bogus version of the Gospel, some fast-food religion, without any deep transformation of the self; and the result has been the spiritual disaster of "Christian" countries that tend to be as consumer-oriented, proud, warlike, racist, class conscious, and addictive as everybody else-and often more so, I'm afraid.”
    Richard Rohr, Breathing Underwater: Spirituality and the 12 Steps

    “Love one another. Love yourself. Then love will find you whole not half.”
    K Dr Michael Taylor

  • #18
    Eugene H. Peterson
    “It is not easy to convey a sense of wonder, let alone resurrection wonder, to another. It’s the very nature of wonder to catch us off guard, to circumvent expectations and assumptions. Wonder can’t be packaged, and it can’t be worked up. It requires some sense of being there and some sense of engagement.”
    Eugene H. Peterson

  • #19
    Karen Maezen Miller
    “Your life is your practice. Your spiritual practice does not occur someplace other than in your life right now, and your life is nowhere other than where you are. You are looking for answers, insight, and wisdom that you already possess. Live the life in front of you, be the life you are, and see what you find out for yourself.”
    Karen Maezen Miller, Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood

    James Baldwin
    “I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”
    James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

  • #21
    Criss Jami
    “If a man cannot understand the beauty of life, it is probably because life never understood the beauty in him.”
    Criss Jami, Killosophy

  • #22
    Ayn Rand
    “Learn to distinguish the difference between errors of knowledge and breaches of morality. An error of knowledge is not a moral flaw, provided you are willing to correct it; only a mystic would judge human beings by the standard of an impossible, automatic omniscience. But a breach of morality is the conscious choice of an action you know to be evil, or a willful evasion of knowledge, a suspension of sight and of thought. That which you do not know, is not a moral charge against you; but that which you refuse to know, is an account of infamy growing in your soul. Make every allowance for errors of knowledge; do not forgive or accept any break of morality.”
    Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

  • #23
    Brandon Sanderson
    “I'm convinced that responsibility is some kind of psychological disease.”
    Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Knights of Crystallia

  • #24
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer
    “Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer

  • #25
    Terry Pratchett
    “Them as can do has to do for them as can't. And someone has to speak up for them as has no voices.”
    Terry Pratchett, The Wee Free Men

  • #26
    William S. Burroughs
    “There are no innocent bystanders ... what are they doing there in the first place?”
    William S. Burroughs, Exterminator!

  • #27
    Steve Maraboli
    “The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.”
    Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

  • #28
    Jonathan Safran Foer
    “Not responding is a response--we are equally responsible for what we don't do. In the case of animal slaughter, to throw your hands in the air is to wrap your fingers around a knife handle.”
    Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals

  • #29
    Derek Landy
    “Still, he figured, sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do, and then sometimes you've just got to run like hell after it's done.”
    Derek Landy, Death Bringer

  • #30
    Glenn Greenwald
    “I don't have a 'side'—I'm responsible for what I say and nothing else.”
    Glenn Greenwald
