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.

To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing.

Raymond Williams

People do not resist change; they resist being changed.

Gerald Nierenberg

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.

Mahatma Gandhi

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

Charlie Chaplin

We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a 1000 invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibres our actions run as causes and return to us as results.

Herman Melville(1819-1891)

You can never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

Buckminster Fuller

You must give birth to your images, they are the future waiting to be born. Fear not the strangeness you feel, the future must enter you long before it happens. Just wait for the birth, for the hour of new clarity.

Rainer Maria Rilke

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

J W Goethe

We don’t need to focus on the unanswered questions so much as the unquestioned answers.

Buckminster Fuller

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain
