Are you having trouble getting into the swing of things today? Take inspiration from the following quotes from some great thinkers. You’ll be sure to get back on track.
Whatever you can do
or dream you can do
Boldness has genius and power
and magic in it.
Begin it now!
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is; nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. …
— Martha Graham
… I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “Brief candle” to me. It is a sort of spendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
— George Bernard Shaw
I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing that I’ve wanted to do.
— Georgia O’Keefe
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy,
the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation)
there is one leementary truth, the ignorance of which
kills countless ideas and spendid plans:
the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help that never otherwise would have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one’s favor
all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance
which no man could have dreamed would come his way.
— W.H. Murray
