Some of my favorite quotes


Imagination is more important than knowledge.
~ Einstein



Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
~ Oprah Winfrey



Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~ Melody Beattie



Evolved individuals know that people who are not intuitive can be dangerous to work with, since they are guided solely by the current appearance of things that are in reality, changing. Evolved individuals seek out others who have intuition and vision - a form of intelligence that comes from cultivating the instincts, observing the direction of change, apprehending the evolution of ideas.”
~ Lao Tzu



To live content with small means... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common... this is to be my symphony.
~ William Henry Channing

Beautiful images and quotes. The images of the woods are bittersweet to me today because the backpacking we had planned this weekend is rained out (100% chance of rain). We were to head to a true backcountry winderness called Scott's Gulf. Perhaps it is for the best, as the river we have to ford several times is probably waist deep from all the rain we've had, and a wee dangerous to cross :(
