Inspirational quotes…

3 years ago

Growing up, I wrote down quotes that I was particularly fond of. I’m interested to see other quotes that you all have found inspiring throughout the years. So, I suppose we could make a game out of this. Be sure to begin your post with a favorite quote, and then feel free to talk to others about their favorites!

I’ll begin with something that has helped me strive to be better than I thought I could have been.
"Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they can’t get it wrong." – Unknown

This is a quote that I wrote in my journal years ago and I love to re-read it.

“Love your fucking grass. Your grass is green, it’s luscious, and you grew it yourself. Who gives a shit about the grass on the other side. Play around in your own grass. It’s amazing, and the color of someone else’s grass has no effect on your own”

“Look back over your lifetime, it can seem to have had a consistent order and plan, as though composed by some novelist. Events that when they occurred had seemed accidental and of little moment turn out to have been indispensable factors in the composition of a consistent plot. So who composed that plot? […] just as your dreams are composed by an aspect of yourself of which your consciousness is unaware, so, too, your whole life is composed by the will within you. And just as people whom you will have met apparently by mere chance became leading agents in the structuring of your life, so, too, will you have served unknowingly as an agent, giving meaning to the lives of others, The whole thing gears together like one big symphony, with everything unconsciously structuring everything else. […] It is as though our lives were the features of the one great dream of a single dreamer in which all the dream characters dream, too; so that everything links to everything else, moved by the one will to life which is the universal will in nature.” – Joseph Campbell
