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.

Our true home is in the present moment.
To live in the present moment is a miracle.
The miracle is not to walk on water.
The miracle is to walk on the green Earth…
to appreciate the peace and beauty available now…
in our bodies and our spirits.
Once we learn to touch this peace,
we will be healed and transformed.
It is not a matter of faith;
it is a matter of practice

Thich Nhat Hanh

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique … No artist is pleased. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching…

Martha Graham

The kind of hope that I often think about … I understand above all as a state of mind, not a state of the world… [Hope] is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.

Vaclav Havel

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

The world we have made as a result of the level of thinking we have done thus far creates problems that we cannot solve at the same level at which we have created them… We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humankind is to survive.

Albert Einstein

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

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

Life is no brief candle to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

George Bernard Shaw

The best political, social, and spiritual work we can do is to withdraw the projection of our shadow onto others.

C G Jung(1875-1961)

Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu – A person is a person through
other people.
