Donna Quesada Quotes

"Think of the jazz improv artist responding to the musical banter among her fellow players onstage. Aside from whatever training theyve done in advance, as soon as the curtain opens, they move into unknown territory together, creating something new each time by remaining in a state of undivided presence."

Kathy Fish Quotes

"The beautiful unruliness of literature is what makes it so much fun to wander through: you read Jane Austen and you say, oh, that is IT. And then you turn around and read Sterne, and you say, Man, that is IT. And then you wander across a century or so, and you run into Kafka, or Calvino, or Cortazar, and you say, well that is IT. And then you stroll through what Updike called the grottos of Ulysses, and after that you consort with Baldwin or Welty or Spencer, or Morrison, or Bellow or Fitzgerald and then back to W. Shakespeare, Esq; the champ, and all the time you feel the excitement of being in the presence of IT. And when you yourself spend the good time writing, you are not different in kind than any of these people, you are part of that miracle of human invention. So get to work. Get on with IT, no matter how difficult IT is. Every single gesture, every single stumble, every single uninspired-feeling hour, is worth IT." Richard Bausch"

Quotes About Nothing Is Impossible With God

"However hard he tried, he could never manage to make himself visible to human eyes and not because he cant, since for him nothing is impossible, its simply that he wouldnt know what face to wear when introducing himself to the beings he supposedly created and who probably wouldnt recognize him anyway. There are those who say were very fortunate that god chooses not to appear before us, because compared with the shock we would get were such a thing to happen, our fear of death would be mere childs play. Besides, all the many things that have been said about god and about death are nothing but stories, and this is just another one." - Author: José Saramago

Quotes About Uplifting Others

"I am learning everyday to see the silver lining on every dark cloud.

To truly make a significant difference in my life and the lives of others by becoming my best self and being the best I can be in service to them.

Quotes About Rediscover

"The value of the myth is that it takes all the things we know and restores to them the rich significance which has been hidden by ‘the veil of familiarity. The child enjoys his cold meat, otherwise dull to him, by pretending it is buffalo, just killed with his own bow and arrow. And the child is wise. The real meat comes back to him more savory for having been dipped in a story…by putting bread, gold, horse, apple, or the very roads into a myth, we do not retreat from reality: we rediscover it." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Dreamcatcher

"What does it mean a greener life? Well, lets be brutal. It doesnt meaning meditating in a centrally heated room on a macrame mat in front of an Amerindian dreamcatcher and a homemade candle surrounded by ugly spider plants, then rushing off in a gas-guzzling 4-wheel drive to collect the children from school and feeding them on pre-prepared supermarket meals heated in the microwave. If you have a faith, living a greener life demands a certain amount of self-sacrifice. You dont save the planet with notions and lip service. Like every adventure it requires a degree of suffering and getting your hands dirty." - Author: Clarissa Dickson Wright

Quotes About Melian

"wandering in the summer in the woods of Neldoreth [Beren] came upon Lúthien, daughter of Thingol and Melian, at a time of evening under moonrise, as she danced upon the unfading grass in the glades beside Esgalduin. Then all memory of his pain departed from him, and he fell into an enchantment; for Lúthien was the most beautiful of all the Children of Ilúvatar. Blue was her raiment as the unclouded heaven, but her eyes were grey as the starlit evening; her mantle was sewn with golden flowers, but her hair was dark as the shadows of twilight. As the light upon the leaves of trees, as the voice of clear waters, as the stars above the mists of the world, such was her glory and her loveliness; and in her face was a shining light." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
