Shannon L. Alder
“When people want to win they will go to desperate extremes. However, anyone that has already won in life has come to the conclusion that there is no game. There is nothing but learning in this life and it is the only thing we take with us to the grave—knowledge. If you only understood that concept then your heart wouldn’t break so bad. Jealousy or revenge wouldn’t be your ambition. Stepping on others to raise yourself up wouldn’t be a goal. Competition would be left on the playing field, and your freedom from what other people think about you would light the pathway out of hell.”
Shannon L. Alder

“Nothing that happens to you was meant to be. The only thing about you that was meant to be is you. Blaze your own trail.”
George Alexiou

Jacob Nordby
“What do you really want?
Did you know that every single one of your desires is an expression of your soul's longing to experience human life as you?
It's true.
These pure impulses get filtered through our conditioning and show up distorted at times, but follow them back to their source and nothing you desire is anything but good and possible.”
Jacob Nordby

Leo Tolstoy
“My belief assumed a form that it commonly assumes among the educated people of our time. This belief was expressed by the word "progress." At the time it seemed to me that this word had meaning. Like any living individual, I was tormented by questions of how to live better. I still had not understood that in answering that one must live according to progress, I was talking just like a person being carried along in a boat by the waves and the wind; without really answering, such a person replies to the only important question-"Where are we to steer?"-by saying, "We are being carried somewhere.”
Leo Tolstoy, A Confession

Brian Tracy
“There's only one direction you can coast.”
Brian Tracy

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Whatever you do you need courage.
Whatever course you decide upon, there will always be someone to tell you that you are wrong.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tom Spanbauer
“The only way out is in ...”

Shannon L. Alder
“Each of us has empty spaces in our heart that go through life being filled temporarily, by the various people we meet along the way. The trick is to find what needs to remain permanently filled in our soul and what needs to be filled occasionally through encounters.”
Shannon L. Alder

“We grew up on the same street,
You and me.
We went to the same schools,
Rode the same bus,
Had the same friends,
And even shared spaghetti
With each other's families.
And though our roots belong to
The same tree,
Our branches have grown
In different directions.
Our tree,
Now resembles a thousand
Other trees
In a sea of a trillion
Other trees
With parallel destinies
And similar dreams.
You cannot envy the branch
That grows bigger
From the same seed,
And you cannot
Blame it on the sun's direction.
But you still compare us,
As if we're still those two
Kids at the park
Slurping down slushies and
Eating ice cream.

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun (2010)”

“It's very simple; just look at your life to see where you're heading. You're always in a momentum of something.”
Maria Erving

Paulo Coelho
“Where is my soul?" Mari asked again. "In my past. In what I wanted my life to be. I left my soul captive in that moment when I still had a house, a husband, a job I wanted to leave but never had the courage to.
My soul was in my past. But today it's here, I can feel it again in my body, vibrant with enthusiasm. I don't know what to do. I only know that it's taken me three years to understand that life was pushing me in a direction I didn't want to go in.”
Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“We spend so much time trying to change others – in part – because we do not deeply believe in and embrace ourselves as we already are. And so more often than not we do not learn to trust and utilize our gifts and power whole-heartedly enough to pursue and fulfill our own passions, purpose and possibilities.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

“If I simply look at the map that I’ve so tediously created, it will explain why I’m laying at the bottom of this cliff looking up.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Miya Yamanouchi
“Even if we have ourselves so fully convinced that we are on the right track because we desperately want the specific direction we have chosen to be the correct one, if the universe disagrees with our choices, it will not be shy in telling us so.”
Miya Yamanouchi, Embrace Your Sexual Self: A Practical Guide for Women

Toni Sorenson

Fennel Hudson
“Satnav will get us quickly and all-too-predictably from A to B, but the path of life is more interesting when we’re allowed to explore the side streets.”
Fennel Hudson, A Waterside Year - Fennel's Journal - No. 2

Donna Goddard
“Put your efforts towards the things in life that enhance your highest self”
