There is no happiness in stagnancy

A magic dwells in each beginning,
protecting us, telling us how to live.

High purposed we shall traverse realm on realm,
cleaving to none as to a home, […]

only he who is ready to journey forth
can throw old habits off.

Hermann Hesse

Maya Angelou

Pull it off… your way!

Any color works if you push it to the extreme.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing

Helen Keller


Expanding the comfort zone

To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.

Pema Chödrön


The effort yields its own rewards

It is the struggle itself that is most important. We must strive to be more than we are. It does not matter that we will never reach our ultimate goal. The effort yields its own rewards.
