Quotation Saturday

There are two ways of spreading light - to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. - Edith Wharton


"To acquire balance means to achieve that happy medium between the minimum and the maximum that represents your optimum. The minimum is the least you can get by with. The maximum is the most you’re capable of. The optimum is the amount or degree of anything that is most favorable toward the ends you desire."
-Nido Qubein

"The seasons do not push one another; neither do clouds race the wind across the sky. All things happen in their own good time."
-Dan Millman


I can live with doubts and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it's more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong... I don't feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in a mysterious universe without having any purpose, which is the way it really is, so far as I can tell. It doesn't frighten me.
-Richard P. Feynman

Willfulness must give way to willingness and surrender. Mastery must yield to mystery.
-Gerald G. May


The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed.
-Bennett Cerf

A good laugh is as good as a prayer sometimes--only sometimes.
-L. M. Montgomery
Rilla Of Ingleside


"It is not so much what you believe in that matters, as the way in which you believe it and proceed to translate that belief into action."
-Lin Yutang

"Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory."
-Norman Vincent Peale

"Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory."
-Norman Vincent Peale
