Quotations

Words shape our reality, and a song or poem has that power in a potently condensed form. Likewise a pithy quotation can say it all – and lodge in the mind to drip-feed our own purpose and courage. Here are the quotations that  appear throughout this website – they will change from time to time as new ones find and inspire me.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.

Albert Einstein

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic and power in it. Begin it now.

J W Goethe

I will meet you there.

Rumi

Gerald Nierenberg

Everybody experiences far more than he understands. Yet it is experience rather than understanding that influences behaviour.

Marshall McLuhan

The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice.

Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.
