Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life. – Eleanor Roosevelt

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. — Walt Disn

Start right now - take a small step you can call your own, don`t follow someone elses`s heroics, be humble and focused, start close in, don`t mistake that other for your own. Start close in, don`t take the second step or the third, start with the first thing close in, the step you don`t want to take.  ~Edward Abbey

Language is one of the most fascinating presences in the world. ... Wittgenstein said, "The limits of my language are the limits of my world." ... When something flows into the shore of your life, one of your first responses is the attempt to name it. ... We need to exercise great care and respect when we come to name something. We always need to find a name that is worthy and spacious.  ~John O`Donahue

And I have felt a presence that disturbs me with the joy of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime of something far more deeply interfused, whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, and the round ocean and the living air, and blue sky and in the mind of man; a motion and a spirit that impels all thinking things, all objects of all thought, and rolls through all things.  ~William Wordsworth

When we choose a definite path or partner, we leave the endless array of beckoning surface. We go below the facade of repetition and risk the danger of encounter, challenge, and responsibility. When you choose with discernment, integrity, and passion, you submit yourself to the slow and unglamourous miracle of change.  ~John O`Donahue

A life’s work is not a series of stepping-stones onto which we calmly place our feet, but more like an ocean crossing where there is no path, only a heading, a direction, which, of itself, is in conversation with the elements.  ~David Whyte

A courageous heart will go forth and engage with life despite confusion and fear. A fearful heart will be hesitant and will tend to hold back. A heavy heart will make for a gloomy, unlived life. A compassionate heart need never carry the burden of judgment. A forgiving heart knows the art of liberation. A loving heart awakens the spirit of possibility and engagement with others.  ~ John O` Donahue

Eat bread and understand comfort. Drink water, and understand delight. Visit the garden where the scarlet trumpets are opening their bodies for the hummingbirds who are drinking the sweetness, who are thrillingly gluttonous.  For one thing leads to another. Soon you will notice how stones shine underfoot. Eventually tides will be the only calendar you believe in.  (Mary Oliver)

Making peace, making things whole, is an endless task. There are many definitions of a peacemaker. One of these I like most is that a peacemaker, knowing that the well needs water, climbs the mountain to reach the snow, gets a spoonful of snow, comes down, drops it in the well, and goes back up the mountain. She knows that the task is endless but she does as much of it as she can, day after day after day.  (Bernie Glassman)

Some things cannot be spoken or discovered until we have been stuck, incapacitated, or blown off course for awhile.  Plain sailing is pleasant, but you are not going to explore many unknown realms that way.          ~David Whyte  Daily Quote

And if my faith is good then we`ll meet again on the road and we`ll be thirsty, and stop and laugh and drink together again from the deep well of things as they are.  ~David Whyte

Grant me the ability to be alone; may it be my custom to go outdoors each day amoung the trees and grasses, amoung all growing things and there may I be alone, and enter into prayer to talk with the One that I belong to. ~Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlav
