Artists don’t get down to work until the pain of working is exceeded by the pain of not working” -Stephen DeStaebler
from the book ‘Art and Fear’
Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. –Terry Pratchett
Giving material goods is one form of generosity, but one can extend an attitude of generosity into all one’s behavior. Being kind, attentive, and honest in dealing with others, offering praise where it is due, giving comfort and advice where they are needed, and simply sharing one’s time with someone – all these are forms of generosity, and they do not require any particular level of material wealth. – Dalai Lama
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior. – Henry C. Link (my big sister Sue gave this to me many years ago on a small piece of paper. It has encouraged me more than she knows.)
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. -Leo Tolstoy (via man-and-camera)
