Favourite Quotes

>> Tuesday, March 18, 2008

I've been working on a little project for the last little while. I'm calling it my "Dream Book" and it's basically a big scrapbook with pictures of things I dream for in my life. Some are materialistic (my dream house, dream vacation, etc) but some are a little more intimate and reflective of what my ideal "inner" self strives to be. It's been hard to find pictures to represent certain things or certain ways of being that I am trying to embody, so I've taken to finding famous quotes that really mean something to me and printing those out to put in my dream book.

Anyone have any great or favourite quotes to share? Something that really speaks volumes to you about what life is truly about or something that reminds you to stay on course and follow your dreams?

Here's a couple of quotes that I've recently discovered from Henry David Thoreau's famous book "Walden". As I read them for the first time it was like a switch turned on in me and I thought "Aha!!"

- "If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."

- "I have always been regretting that I was not as wise as the day I was born."

- "To be awake is to be alive."

- "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

Love, love, love that last one.

that's awsome. great idea!! i have been doing the same kind of, with the quotes. for years now i have been compiling quotes from all over the place...quotes that mean something to me, that touch me. maybe this is a dream of mine, but i thought of possibly putting together a book sometime in my life with all these quotes and actually publishing it. maybe even make up some of my own. i'll find some great ones and share with you Suzanne.

I have always loved this.

"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something thay you have left behind...let it be something good."

Never be bullied into silence.
Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
Accept no ones definiton of your life; define yourself.
-Harvey Fierstein


We should consider every day
lost in which we have not
danced at least once.
-Nietzche

things don't go wrong
and break your heart so
you can become bitter
and give up. they happen
to break you down and
build you up so you can
be all that you were
intended to be.
-charles 'tremendous' jones
