“I have noticed that doing the sensible thing is only a good idea when the decision is quite small. For the life-changing things, you must risk it.” –Jeanette Winterson

“When the deepest part of you becomes engaged in what you are doing, when your activities and actions become gratifying and purposeful, when what you do serves both yourself and others, when you do not tire within but seek the sweet satisfaction of your life and your work, you are doing what you were meant to be doing.” –Gary Zukav

“To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. Every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

“Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.” – Toni Morrison

“In literature and in life we ultimately pursue, not conclusion, but beginnings.” –Sam Tanenhaus, Literature Unbound
