At least once a week I browse through my old journals just to see the ideas I thought were important. Sometimes, I find quotes from people that I believe are worth sitting with again and I post them in this blog/journal for easier retrieval. Today is such a day.
I’ll post some of the quotes I found today. Some have direct attribution and others are a head nod in a certain direction. Either way, I thought they were worth a sit-down and a meditation. Here are some of the ones I found:
“Do something for no other reason than you would rather not do it at all.” – William James
“To live in conformity with what I believe, in spite of what I feel isn’t hypocrisy, it’s integrity.” – Erik Thoennes
“There’s a difference between being a leader and being in charge. Anybody can be in charge not anybody can be a leader.” – military concept on leadership
“Affirmation without discipline leads to delusion.” – Jim Rohn
“You don’t get frustrated with things you haven’t invested in. Wherever there is investment there is frustration because investment creates expectation.” – TD Jakes
“Education and growth is a life decision not a schooling one.” – Mentors over time
“In the adult world there are no medals for omniscience.” – Grace Nutley
“An honest man is hurt by praise unjustly bestowed.” – French saying
“In all debates, let truth be thy aim, and endeavor to gain rather than expose thy opponent.” – paraphrase of William Penn
“What we do not understand we do not possess.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Ideas when meditated on, begins to help shape how we see the world. Notice i said “begins”. Sit with these. Throw away those you think are horrible and rumble with those that challenge you in a good way or opens recognition of a present issue in your heart.
Talk about ideas.
Be Blessed. Push Forward
