Quotes

I find a lot of inspiration in quotes of all kinds; I can’t help it. Words are how I process and experience most of my life! So without further ado, and without a whole lot of organization, here are collected thoughts that have resonated with me at some time or another. Check back. I’ll add regularly. 🙂

“It’s important to power through excuses because, most of the time, excuses are the stuff of fear. Of what? Of not being good enough, of not being profound enough, of not being able to hide from the fact that we’re never satisfied with what we’ve created. The truth is, that’s a good thing. To be self-satisfied is to kill creativity.”
~ Pari Noskin Taichert

- Edith Lovejoy Pierce

 

“We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
- Ellen Goodman
