We enjoy including wonderful quotations throughout the site. We know that many
of you love to ponder on them further, so we're placing them all here on these pages,
and will add the new ones each month. Choose a group to read related quotes:




  Constantin Brancusi   "Things are not difficult to make. What is difficult is putting ourselves in a state of mind to make them."
  Buddha   "Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart, to give yourself to it."
  Julia Cameron   "Never ask whether you can do something. Say instead that you are going to do it, then fasten your
  seat belt."
  Pam Godderis   "What if . . . ."
  Jane Dunnewold   "In order to be spiritually centred, one must become like water - flowing around obstacles and gradually   creating change through perseverance and endurance."
  George Lorimer   "Putting off an easy thing makes it hard, and putting off a hard one makes it impossible."
  Peter London   "Inside (the creative experience) is inquiry, the expansion of emotional depth and range, the tuning of
  the spirit and the quest for meaning."
  Rainer Maria Rilke   "Love is high inducement to the individual to ripen, to become whole, to become whole for himself and   another's sake, it is a great exciting claim on him, something that chooses him out and calls him to
  vast things."
  Max Beckman   "All important things in art have always originated from the deepest feelings about the mystery of Being."
  Ruth Asawa   "The best ideas come unexpectedly from a conversation or a common activity like watering the garden."
  Eric Maisel   "Every day creative people stand up for the truth, love the truth, and even risk their lives for the truth.
  But the truth is often hard to discern."
  Rollo May    "Creativity occurs in an act of encounter and is to be understood as it's center."
  William Faulkner   "Always dream and shoot higher than you know how to. Don't bother just to be better than your
  contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself."
  Janis Joplin    "I would rather not sing than sing quiet."
  Joyce Maynard    "Every person should possess license to sing in his or her true voice."
  Rebbe Nachman    "Even if you cannot sing well, sing."
  Billy Joel   "I really wish I was less of a thinking man and more of a fool not afraid of rejection."
  Louise Nevelson   "I think all great innovations are built on rejection."
  Lisa Alther   "I wrote for 12 years and collected 250 rejection slips before getting my fiction published. So I guess outside reinforcement isn't all that important to me. "
  Earl Graves   "We keep going back, stronger, not weaker, because we will not allow rejection to beat us down. It will only strengthen our resolve. To be successful there is no other way."
  Giuseppe Mazzini   "Music is an outburst of the soul."
  Aldous Huxley   "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
  Gustav Mahler   "What is best about music is not to be found in the notes."
  Hans Christian Anderson   "Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale of all. "
  Bill Mooney and David Holt   "Stories are how we learn."
  Louis L'Amour   "A writer's brain is like a magician's hat. If you're going to get anything out of it, you have to put something in it first."
  Carol Burnett   "Words, once they are written, have a life of their own."
  Edwin Schlossberg   "The skill of writing is to create a context in which other people can think."
  Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey   "Please write again. Though my own life is filled with activity, letters encourage momentary escape into other's lives, and I come back to my own with greater contentment."
  Dale Carnegie   "In action breeds doubt. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."

  Albert Einstein   "The reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once."
  Harvey MacKay   "Time is free, but it is priceless."

  Walt Disney   "I love Mickey Mouse more than any woman I have known."
  Walt Disney   "I would rather entertain and hope that people learn something than educate people and hope they are entertained."
  Walt Disney   "Once you pass through the portals…you are in a different world."
