July 2, 2009

Who doesn’t love a good quote?  Quotes can be the most profound, the most enlightening, the most comedic, the most ironic, and the most thought-provoking words ever spoken in the human language!  Quotes can speak volumes and tie things together in such eloquent fashion, they literally go down in history! They can make us laugh, cry, love more, fear less, think deeper, and inspire us to reach new heights.

After watching all of the ‘Quote Love’ happening on Facebook and Twitter lately (Lots of people sharing lots of quotes!) , I thought it would be great to get everyone to share their favorite quote (or quotes) with the community here!  Let’s put together a compilation of the most empowering, inspirational, funny, and just flat-out BEST quotes around…

Let’s celebrate a little “Quote Love”!

Here are a few of my favorites:

“One who sees himself as everything is fit to be guardian of the world… One who loves himself as everyone is fit to be teacher of the world.” ~ Tao

“Abundance will shine through a mind that is aware of its own infinite nature” ~ The Secret

“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to live the life that is waiting for us.” ~ EM Forster

“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of someone’s life with perfection” ~ The Baghavad Gita

“The meaning of life is to find your gift… The purpose of life is to give it away” ~ Joy J. Golliver

That one came from a fortune cookie! They’re usually silly, but I rather like that one.

“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”

I came across this quote in 1999 when I was trying to get over my first love in high school…I still believe that’s true!

Anyone can achieve their fullest potential. Who we are might be pre-determined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing.

We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny.

Your destiny can’t be changed but it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men but dies as a single one.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” –John Lennon

How could I POSSIBLY give just one quote?!?

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.”
– Benjamin Disraeli

“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.”
– William James

“I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.”
– Dr. Jonas Salk

and of course, I couldn’t leave out the Doctor:

“Unless someone like you
cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going
to get better. It’s not.”
– Dr. Seuss

I LOVE quotes…this is not even close to how many I wanted to post…perhaps another day.

Enjoying adding to the conversation. Here’s one of my favorites on taking inspired action:

“You should know now that a man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting, nor by thinking about what he will think when he has finished acting. A man of knowledge chooses a path with heart and follows it.”
– Carlos Castaneda, A Separate Reality

and on Dreams:
“Never let anyone steal your dream.
It’s YOUR dream, not theirs!” ~Dan Zadra

In the spirit of wisdom, wellness and prosperity, I wish you well–
