The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be.
Neale Donald Walsch
Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.
Inspiration grows into full-scale creation through persistence and imagination.
Like a sandcastle, all is temporary. Build it, tend it, enjoy it, and when the time comes let it go.
Go into the arts. I’m not kidding.
The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake.
Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem.
Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward.
You will have created something.
True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.
Dr. Robert Schuller
