10 inspirational quotes, part 12

by Henrik Edberg

You cannot propel yourself forward by patting yourself on the back.

Footprints on the sands of time are never made by sitting down.

Everyone takes the limits of his own vision for the limits of the world.
Arthur Schopenhauer

The mark of a good action is that it appears inevitable in retrospect.
Robert Louis Stevenson

And from the discontent of one man
The world’s best progress springs.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

If you believe that feeling bad or worrying long enough will change
a past or future event, then you are residing on another planet with
a different reality system.

If you don’t change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever.
Is that good news?
Dr. Robert Anthony

The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants
from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith
to believe that it is possible.
Richard M. DeVos

When we argue for our limitations, we get to keep them.
Peter Mcwilliams

‘Come to the edge’, he said.
They said,’We are afraid’.
‘Come to the edge’, he said.
They came,
He pushed.
He pushed them ….
And they flew.
Guillaume Apollinaire

Why do you tease us with quotes and no interpretation? I want to know what you think.

Kare Anderson December 8, 2006 at 11:01 pm

What a treasure of a blog you have! I just wish the goggle ads could be pulled a bit farther to the left instead of flooding into your sayings

Here’s some more…..

In a civilization when love is
gone we turn to justice and when
justice is gone we turn to power
and when power is gone we
turn to violence.

Failure is no more fatal
than success is permanent.

Opportunity is often inconvenient.

Go slow to go fast.

You only and always
have three choices
in any situation:
change, accept or leave.
The sweetest revenge
is a well – lived life.

Love is not always power; that may be as
good a description of the human predicament
as we are likely to get.

Remember the many
compartments of the heart,
the seed of what is
possible. So much of who
we are is defined by
the places we hold for each
other. For it is not our ingenuity
that sets us apart, but our
capacity for love, the
possibility our way will
be lit by grace. Our hearts
prisms, chiseling out the
colors of pure light.
… be love & savor the holidays

yup, a piece of comment would be truly appreciated…

Kare: Thanks for the feedback. I´m constantly trying different positions for the ads and looking for new solutions. I´m hoping to find one soon that that is even better than the currecnt one.

John Wesley and passway: Thank you. But for now, I´d like to leave the interpretations up to each visitor as I think many of the quotes apply differently depending on where you are in your life.

The last quote reminds me this, “Faith is like jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down.”
