Life is more mystery than misery

(or at least, that's what I like to think)

INSPIRING QUOTES

plath“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

-Sylvia Plath-

I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all.

~Richard Wright, American Hunger, 1977-


“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We ANin4grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”

-Anais Nin-

It is impossible to discourage the real writers – they don’t give a damn what you say, they’re going to write.

-Sinclair Lewis-

Malraux“The great mystery is not that we should have been thrown down here at random between the profusion of matter and that of the stars; it is that from our very prison we should draw, from our own selves, images powerful enough to deny our nothingness”

-André Malraux-

“The final mystery is oneself.”

-Oscar Wilde-


dilbert_scott_adams1“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”

-Scott Adams-


Dickens

“A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other”

-Charles Dickens-


“Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don’t let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.”

-R. I. Fitzhenry-

“The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.”

-Oscar Wilde-

“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.”

-Rachel Carson-

“The noun of self becomes a verb. This flashpoint of creation in the present moment is where work and play merge.”

-Stephen Nachmanovitch-

“Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the ploughshare of self-examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring…”

-Henri Frederic Amiel, Swiss writer, 1821-1881-

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”

-Albert Einstein-

Anyone or anything that does not bring you alive is too small for you.

-David Whyte-

Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.

-W. Somerset Maugham (1874 – 1965), The Razor’s Edge, 1943

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

-Andy Warhol (1928 – 1987), The Philosophy of Andy Warhol-

To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.

-Soren Kierkegaard-

You’re alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.

-Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2000-

Life is a foreign language; all men mispronounce it.

-Christopher Morley (1890 – 1957)-

We are so vain that we even care for the opinion of those we don’t care for.
-Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach-

“You’ve achieved success in your field when you don’t know whether what you’re doing is work or play”

-Warren Beatty quotes (American Actor, Producer and Film Director, b.1937)-

“We write to taste life twice.”

-Anaďs Nin-

“Absurdity, n.: A statement or belief manifestly inconsistent with one’s own opinion”.

-Ambrose Bierce-

“Words need to be crafted, not sprayed. They need yo be fitted together with infinite care”

-Norman Cousins-
