Quintet of Quality Quotations

Do not ask what the world needs. Instead, ask what makes you come alive. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.
--Thurmond Whitman

Follow your bliss. Find where it is and don't be afraid to follow it.
-- Joseph Campbell

You are the maker of yourself. By virtue of the thoughts that you encourage: mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance. As you may before have woven in ignorance and pain, you may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.
-- (taken from) James Allen, As Man Thinketh

Do or Do Not, There is no Try.

Take time, darling, also to smell the roses and to make friends, it is so important.
-- My grandfather, Spence, as written in his memoirs.

Thanks to "Josh Baskin" - he who has finally earned himself the right nickname, whose conversation and outreach reminded me of these very real truths today, and continually. I am a better person for knowing him, and I know my grandfather would be proud.
