“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experiences to the
utmost, to reach out eagerly and without
fear for newer and richer experiences”.

-Eleanor Roosevelt

“Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

-Mark Twain

“There are two ways to live your life. One as though nothing were a miracle, or one as though everything is a miracle”.

Albert Einstein

“Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow”.

-Dorthy Thompson

“Death is not the biggest fear; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive. The risk to be alive and express what we really are”.

-Don Miguel Ruiz

-Bob Dylan

“Responsibility is the ability to choose how we respond to simulation coming in through our sensory systems at any moment in time. It takes us less than 90 sec for one of these programs to be triggered, surge through out body, and be completely flushed out. Once triggered, the chemical released by my brain surges through my boy and I have a physiological experience. Within 90 sec, the chemical component has dissipated from the blood and the automatic response is over. If I remain angry after those 90 seconds, it is because I have chose to let that circuit continue to run”.

-Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor from My Stroke of Insight
