At some point in time, I can't be sure when, someone posted sticky notes in my quote scribbler, far ahead of where I had copied quotes to. By accident I realized this only this year and found that they had repeated this action three times. All three quotes are wonderful.
"The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is too low and we reach it.'
"When you are inspired by some great project,all your thoughts break their bonds,your mind transcends limitations, your consiousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far then you ever dreamed yourself to be."
"People are often unreasonable,illogical and self-centered; forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,ulterior motives; be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; be successful anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight; build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and your god; It was never between you and them anyway."
- Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Here are some others :
"Some drink at the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle."
"On the other hand, you have different fingers."
"Silence is the one great art of conversation."
"Show me the person you honour, for I know better by that the kind of person you are. For you show me what your idea of humanity is."
"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."
- small girl, unsure of name
"The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work."
"If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.'
And last but not least(for today anyway....
), a Taoist meditation:
"Deep in the valley is a mother spirit who doesn't die,
A mystery woman.
At the doorway of this woman
is Heaven and Earth's source.
Forever spinning,never tired, she's always there."

A master at the art of living does not distinguish between his work and his play.
