G.K. Chesterton
“An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”
G.K. Chesterton

Nikita Gill
“Some people are born with tornadoes in their lives, but constellations in their eyes. Other people are born with stars at their feet, but their souls are lost at sea.”

Oprah Winfrey
“Opportunity may knock only once but temptation leans on the door bell”
Oprah Winfrey, Oprah Winfrey Speaks: Insights from the World's Most Influential Voice

Shannon L. Alder
“It is easier to tell a person what life is not, rather than to tell them what it is. A child understands weeds that grow from lack of attention, in a garden. However, it is hard to explain the wild flowers that one gardener calls weeds, and another considers beautiful ground cover.”
Shannon L. Alder

Jonah Lehrer
“The fatal misconception behind brainstorming is that there is a particular script we should all follow in group interactions.... [W]hen the composition of the group is right—enough people with different perspectives running into one another in unpredictable ways—the group dynamic will take care of itself. All these errant discussions add up. In fact, they may even be the most essential part of the creative process. Although such conversations will occasionally be unpleasant—not everyone is always in the mood for small talk or criticism—that doesn’t mean that they can be avoided. The most creative spaces are those which hurl us together. It is the human friction that makes the sparks.”
Jonah Lehrer

“Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Music is very personal. It means different things to different people. To you it means belonging. To me it means knowing I exist.”
Simon Cheshire, Plastic Fantastic

Ray Bradbury
“Where's your common sense? None of those books agree with each other. You've been locked up here for years with a regular damned Tower of Babel. Snap out of it! The people in those books never lived. Come on now!”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Battiscombe G. Gunn
“In these days [1908], when all things and memories of the past are at length become not only subservient to, but submerged by, the matters and needs of the immediate present, those paths of knowledge that lead into regions seemingly remote from such needs are somewhat discredited; and the aims of those that follow them whither they lead are regarded as quite out of touch with the real interests of life. Very greatly is this so with archaeology, and the study of ancient and curious tongues, and searchings into old thoughts on high and ever-insistent questions; a public which has hardly time to read more than its daily newspaper and its weekly novel has denounced - almost dismissed - them, with many other noble and wonderful things, as 'unpractical,' whatever that vague and hollow word may mean.”
Battiscombe G. Gunn

Ruth Emmie Lang
“I feel like...before, I had one way of looking at things, and now, I have a million possibilities, and I get to choose.”
Ruth Emmie Lang, Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance

Jeff Foster
“Oh, sweet little boy, beloved little girl, you are so overwhelmed by life sometimes, I know, by the enormity of it all, by the vastness of the possibilities, by the myriad of perspectives available to you. You feel so pressed down sometimes, by all the unresolved questions, by all the information you are supposed to process and hold, by the urgency of things. You are overcome by powerful emotions, trying to make it all "work out" somehow, trying to get everything done "on time," trying to resolve things so fast, even trying not to try at all.
You are exhausted, sweet one, exhausted from all the trying and the not trying, and you are struggling to trust life again. It's all too much for the poor organism, isn't it? You are exhausted; you long to rest. And that is not a failing of yours, not a horrible mistake, but something wonderful to embrace!”
Jeff Foster, The Way of Rest: Finding the Courage to Hold Everything in Love

“Every moment is a choice. You choose what you do and don't do. You choose how you react. You even choose your perspective. Will you choose whether the moment will serve you in a positive or negative way. You choose whether to take it and live it with love or not. You choose what the moment means. This is the responsibility you have to yourself. Don't just blindly float through your moments and your day. Be aware of your decisions and their outcomes. Be aware of your power!”
Akiroq Brost

“Challenge yourself to venture beyond your comfort zone. Don't be afraid to try something new. Don't be afraid to expand your life. Experience something different and grow a new perspective. Increase the depth of the experience of your life. Make your life the best you can. Enjoy!”
Akiroq Brost

Pola Oloixarac
“Il pénètre dans un espace dense envahi de
fantômes et de géométries intentionnelles; telle est la configuration du monde: la totalité des points de vue passés et présents qui se croisent dans l'espace. Le monde est un champ miné de perspectives.”
Pola Oloixarac, Las teorías salvajes

“Stay open to new ideas, to new perspectives, to changing your mind. Never stop learning and growing!”
Akiroq Brost

“Have you considered the possibility that there might be a different way? How can you do anything differently if you can't imagine there is or can be anything different? Start by opening your mind and letting your imagination free. Don't be too sure that one way is the only way. Stay curious, stay open.”
Akiroq Brost

“He makes me so mad. She makes me crazy. That makes me so sad.
No one makes you anything.
You make yourself.”
Akiroq Brost

“Fear is a lie. It's imagining, speculating, worrying, and stressing about something that hasn't even happened. How many times have you imagined a thousand different ways something may not work out? How many times have you allowed fear to cripple you to the point where you could not move forward, you could not go ahead? Fear is the worst possible use of imagination, completely sabotaging us at every turn. Once you realize fear is imagination gone wrong, you can harness the decision. You can decide and choose to imagine something better. Perhaps, your success, perhaps a good outcome. Or you could just use the energy to do something productive towards ensuring a better outcome.”
Akiroq Brost

“How we see ourselves affects how we see everything outside of ourselves as well. Do your inner work if you want to have a better outer life.”
Akiroq Brost

“In every moment you are experiencing yourself in that moment. Your reality is dictated by your perspectives. Stay present and mindful.”
Akiroq Brost

“We create our own truths through our own perspectives. We have the power to recreate our perspectives. We are creators.”
Akiroq Brost

“Improve the quality of your thoughts and you'll improve the quality of your life.”
Akiroq Brost

“Dogs see with their eyes. Humans see with their minds. That makes all the difference in how they live their lives." -- Avatar”
Kathryn Eriksen, Drop the Leash: Let Go of the Past and Love in the Present

“It is innate temperament, acting on a view of the facts necessarily incomplete, that has inspired so many different teachers.”
T. Bailey Saunders, The Wisdom of Life, Being the First Part of Arthur Schopenhauer's Aphorismen Zur Lebensweisheit

“It is OK if people don't like you, don't like what you do, or how you do it. Remember, you are living this life for YOU. This is your life first. You can't fight every battle and you won't win every battle you fight.”
Akiroq Brost

Kailin Gow
“People aren’t all brought up the same way, and they have different perspectives on what is right and wrong. That being the case, you can’t assume anything about anyone without having some concrete basis to make a determination. - Raising A Strong Daughter: What Fathers Should Know by Finlay Gow JD and Kailin Gow MA”
Kailin Gow

“The same mirror that shows my youth by day shows my age at night.”
