9/18/11 “Quotes”

Good day, team.

Once in awhile I like to share some of my favorite quotes as inspiration for the week’s challenge. Here’s my current list of favorites:

“The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment.”

— Pema Chodron

“Love is saying, ‘I feel differently’ instead of “You’re wrong.’ ”
— Unknown

“More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.”
— Francois Gautier

“When you judge another, you do not define them. You define yourself.”
— Wayne Dyer

“Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.”

— Charles Swindoll

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.”

— Gandhi

“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.”

— Frank Crane

“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.”

— Eckhart Tolle

“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.”

— Sam Keen

“A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.”

— Johann Von Goethe

“The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.”

— Elbert Hubbard

“The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion. The tunnel is.”



This week, I’m choosing the quote from Gandhi: “There is more to life than increasing its speed.” In my ongoing attempt to experience each moment with more ease and equanimity, I find the temptation to go faster and faster is one of my greatest obstacles. I’m always wishing I could get things done more quickly, and I frequently try to multitask, rushing from one thing to the next or not really focusing on the task at hand. This week, my challenge will be to slow down, take more in stride and live each moment to the fullest.

Which quote will inspire you this week?

Have a good week!
