Octopus On Roller Skates

Talent without discipline, is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.

~ H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Herd Mentality

The human race is a herd. Here we are, unique, eternal aspects of consciousness with an infinity of potential, and we have allowed ourselves to become an unthinking, unquestioning blob of conformity and uniformity. A herd. Once we concede to the herd mentality, we can be controlled and directed by a tiny few. And we are.

~ David Icke

Intuitive And Rational Mind

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

~ Albert Einstein

Population Growth

It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world it for us right now.

~ David Attenborough

I love being an introvert…

“I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.”

~ Audrey Hepburn

Men Marry Women …..

“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”

~ Albert Einstein

Noble And Beautiful

“When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.”

~ John Lennon

The Human Spirit

“Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.”

~ William Ellery Channing

Two Kinds Of Truth

There are two kinds of truths: truth of reasoning and truths of fact. Truths of reasoning are necessary and their opposite is impossible; those of fact are contingent and their opposite is possible.

~ Gottfried Leibniz

Life Is The Fire …..

Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternty.

~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca

The Truth Is Simple

People expect Byzantine, Machiavellian logic from politicians. But the truth is simple. Trial lawyers learn a good rule: ‘Don’t decide what you have to decide.’ That’s not evasion, it’s wisdom.

Mario Cuomo

Cosmic Ordering

I’m into the law of attraction and quantum physics. Like cosmic ordering. It’s all about thinking lovely things that you would like in life, and feeling good about them before the manifest, so that by the time they do, you don’t want them because you’re on to your next desire.

Julia Sawalha

Human Nature

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”

~ Dale Carnegie
