Quotes of the day... 7/24/15

“How do you stop yourself from worrying?”

“What about the bad things?”

Not anymore. Now I say live and let live,
and I kick those other thoughts away.”
     ~ Judy Blume

must come face to face with them.
How we handle our fears
will determine where we go…
To experience adventure
or to be limited by the fear of it.”
     ~ Judy Blume

You do know that, right?

Quotes of the day... 7/21/15

“There are so many things 
we can’t do anything about 
if we think about generalities. 
Things won’t go well because 
there is a huge gap between 
the generalities and the particulars. 
If we see generalities 
from the top of a mountain or from a plane, 
we feel it’s hopeless, but if we go down, 
there is a nice road running about fifty meters, 
we feel this is a nice road, 
and if the weather is fine and shining, 
we feel we can go on… 
Since the people in the community 
are cleaning up the river in my neighborhood, 
I join them when I have the time. A human 
can often be satisfied with the particulars. 
That’s what I like best these days.” 
     ~ Hayao Miyazaki

“As soon as you honor the present moment, 
all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, 
and life begins to flow with joy and ease. 
When you act out the present-moment awareness, 
whatever you do becomes imbued 
with a sense of quality, care and love—
even the most simple action.” 
     ~Eckhart Tolle

The world is a tragedy to those who feel, 
but a comedy to those who think.
     ~ Horace Walpole

Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, 
and you are the slave to your emotions.
     ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

Man is a thought being, 
and his life and character are determined 
by the thoughts in which he habitually dwells.
     ~ James Allen
