Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.

I had to sort of re-invent painting for myself, it seemed sort of more or less impossible but, if you’re determined to keep on going, you know you don’t need to give up because if you subject is your own experience then as long as you’re having an experience you’ve got a subject, and that has turned out to be true, even into total blindness.

wisdom quote
Neal A. Maxwell

Neal A. Maxwell  1926 – 2004
Beware not to get caught up in the thick of thin things.

Patience is.. Clearly not fatalistic, shoulder-shrugging resignation. It is the acceptance of a Divine rhythm of life; it is obedience prolonged. Patience stoutly resists pulling up the daises to see how the roots are doing.

Time is clearly not our natural dimension. Thus it is that we are never really at home in time. Alternately, we find ourselves wishing to hasten the passage of time or to hold back the dawn. We can do neither, of course, but whereas the fish is at home in water, we are clearly not at home in time.. Because we belong to eternity.

While we must always begin from where we are, we need not stay where we are.

Spiritual Quotes To Live By



Harry Potter
It is our choices that describe who we are, much more than our abilities.

Never lie, cheat, steal or drink.  But… if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.  If you must steal, steal away from bad company.  If you must cheat, cheat death.  If you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.
