Some of my favorite Quotes

Dr. Seuss - “Today you are you that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is youer than you.”

Rollo May- “The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require courage.”

Maya Angelou- “There is no greater agony then bearing an untold story inside of you.”

Carl Jung- "the exaggerated rationalization of consciousness...seeking to control nature isolates itself from her and so robs man of his own natural history. He finds himself transplanted into a limited present...The limitation creates a feeling that he is a haphazard creature, without meaning, and it is this feeling that prevents him from living his life with the intensity it demands if it is to be enjoyed to the full."

Thomas Jefferson- “The sun has not caught me in bed in fifty years”

Steve Jobs– “I want to put a ding in the universe”

Natalie Goldberg-"Life is not orderly. No matter how we try to make it so, right in the middle of it we die, lose a leg, fall in love, or drop a jar of applesauce."

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
