Writing 101 Day 2…My List…Words To Live By 🖋

As a quote lover and collector, I decided to compile a list of some of my favorites. In no particular order………….

“Quotes are signs we put on our map to navigate through the journey called “life”

~Ronit Baras~

  • “Beauty is the illumination of your soul.”
—John O’Donohue~
  • “I have learnt that no matter what, we are all remarkably beautiful in our own unique ways, and that no one has the right to make us feel otherwise.”~Zoe Q.~
  • “I find that as I grow older, I long more for silence and solitude, not so much to withdraw from the world, but to strengthen… I am just as much an essential part of this great tapestry when I am sitting alone — creating, dreaming, wondering, breathing and feeling, as I am when I am integrated with the world — living, connecting and sharing. We grow when we are apart and we learn when we are together” ~Joy~
  • “With the clock inevitably ticking, I’ve decided to live the most awesomely enriched life that I can create for myself. Why the heck not make the most of this incredible gift of life? I am here for a good time, not a long time.” ~PS~”
  • “What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.” 
~Jack Kerouac, On the Road~
  • “Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.” ~Erich Fromm~
  • “Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.” 
~Tom Robbins~
  • “May I wonder and wander through life, witnessing energy in the sun beams, relaxation in the ocean waves, trust in the steadfast growth of trees, love in the rich colors of wildflowers, and openness in the expanse of the sky. May I embody nature as nature embodies the truth of life—to be open, loving, trusting, and relaxed is to be fully awake and alive.” ~UK~
  • “She’s a dreamer, a soul searcher and a wanderer. She drifts along, deep in thought, her mind craving exploration and her eyes telling tales of mysterious adventures.” ~UK~
