We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that something deep inside us is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
Art makes life bearable. It isn’t a luxury. Like our capacity for understanding, and our experience of love, it is a vitally important part of life.
Gillian Pederson Krag
People are like stained glass windows: They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give,
and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
Loss makes artists of us all as we weave new patterns in the fabric of our lives.
Greta W. Crosby
You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life.
And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Where you stumble, there your treasure lies.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
