Toward our dreams

boat-1

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.”

–Mark Twain

In the crowd

Arboretum-PurpleFlowers2-1 Arboretum-PurpleFlowers2-1-2

“I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.

You have that moment now. Choose!”
― Oscar Wilde

While the choice is not easy, standing up for yourself against a crowd of expectations can be the most difficult, yet most rewarding experience. .

Journey

Peace is a journey of a thousand miles and it must be taken one step at a time.

Lyndon B. Johnson

This picture was taken on a trip to Half Moon Bay California. While the colors were lovely the blank and white version seemed to say more visually.

Soaring

SantaBarbara-3

One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.

Helen Keller

 

During my absence I was creeping through life trying not to get hurt. There was a lot of time that I continued forward without much inspiration. Now I once again realize we were meant to soar, we can not stay on the ground. Pain will come, people will hurt you but you must continue on toward something higher. Happiness and success are found after you pass through the challenges life throws at you.

Just one more sip

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

The path to truth

SantaBarbara-1

 

“Perception is not truth — and sometimes it is a lie. It is false to facts. If we are to become awake, it is incumbent upon us to seek the truth. Truth seekers recognize the many possible paths others call truth, but they are unwilling to accept the herd definition and rather continue their journey seeking that ineffable and perhaps undiscoverable epistemological certainty.”
- Eldon Taylor Huffington Post article
