Peace begins when expectation ends.
It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.
Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
All happiness or unhappiness solely depends upon the quality of the object to which we are attached by love.
Beware of Destination Addiction… a preoccupation with the idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job and with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are.
Character is Power.
-Booker T. Washington
Pure pragmatism can’t imagine a bold future.
Pure idealism can’t get anything done.
It is the delicate blend of both that drives innovation.
If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams, and you will always look lovely.

Authenticity is really when you don’t need the affirmation of anyone else to feel very good about what you have to say or what your point of view is.
Do not be a magician – be magic.
You’re only given one little spark of madness.
You mustn’t lose it.
– Robin Williams
Potential has a shelf life.

Great minds discuss ideas.

In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
The Creative Industry is NEVER on Strike.

When one leaves certain social situations, moves into temporary loneliness, and then finds a few jewels, everything changes.
– Joseph Campbell
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.
It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.
– Albert Einstein
We lift ourselves by our thought. We climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it & of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always, everywhere.
– Orison Swett Marden
