Oliver Wendell Holmes
A moment's insight is sometimes worth a life's experience.
All of the top achievers I know are life-long learners... looking for new skills, insights, and ideas. If they're not learning, they're not growing... not moving toward excellence.
I shut my eyes in order to see.
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Know yourself. Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
My goal is simple. It is complete understanding of the universe, why it as it is and why it exists as all.
G. K. Chesterton
One sees great things from the valley, only small things from the peak.
People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.
Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be.
