Quote of the Day – Twila Tharp on Everything

Today’s quote is all about creativity and using the right materials to be creative. Here’s the key, all things are the “right materials.” Everything is raw material. Everything is relevant. Everything is usable. Everything feeds into my creativity. But without proper preparation, I cannot see it, retain it, and use it. – Twyla Tharp Used…

Quote of the Day – Sally Field on Self-Image

I really liked this quote. It was something that spoke to me. Mostly because I’m constantly thinking about how people perceive me and how I’m viewed in the world, sometimes too much. Sometimes I don’t care, but deep down, it affects me greatly. I was raised to sense what someone wanted me to be and…

Quote of the Day – Donella Meadows on Direction

An interesting, and smart, perspective. I hadn’t thought about things in this manner. A good reminder is always necessary. Happy Friday, my friends. If we haven’t specified where we want to go, it is hard to set our compass, to muster enthusiasm, or to measure progress. But vision is not only missing almost entirely from…

Photo of the Day – Shadows, Mountains and Light

I’m really excited by this photo, a cool view that I get to experience everyday. Mt Hood in the Distance, Ikea in the distance (hehe) a great field of green, and a cool road winding through it. When the sun is shining, the whole thing comes together. Have you missed one of the photos of…

Quote of the Day – Ashleigh Brilliant on Hitting Your Mark

Today’s quote, a little levity for Friday. Sometimes, when we’re in the thick of this thing called life, we forget to laugh a little. So, take a moment, find something that you find humourous and have a giggle; it’ll do your soul good. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and whatever you…

Quote of the Day – Sylvester Stallone on Rejection

Heh. I feel a little wonky quoting Stallone. This just seemed to be what I needed to hear today. So, when you’re feeling rejected, remember this: I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat. – Sylvester Stallone Used under creative commons, thanks…

Quote of the Day – Sam Donaldson on Self-Worth.

Today, I’d like all of us to remove negative self talk from our language. Remember to say to yourself at least once a day: “I’m worth it, I deserve this and I make a difference.” If you can’t say that to yourself, who is going to say it for you? — Just sayin’. But I…

Quote of the Day – M.C. Escher on Success

Today is MC Escher’s birthday. It is also Father’s Day in the United States. I thought about doing a father’s day quote, but instead found this wonderful quote from a spectacular artist. Happy Dad’s Day for all the fathers out there, anywho. The result of the struggle between the thought and the ability to express…

Quote of the Day – Denis Diderot on Creative Genius

I think we all have some creativity; whether it’s the gift of gab or bullshit, painting or photography, or just figuring out creative ways to stretch a buck. I think all of those things apply naturally. I am an observer and a participator, which is why this quote stuck to me. 🙂 There are three…

Quote of the Day – Victor Hugo on Prayer

I have a friend going through some pretty serious things right now. I’m not normally one who speaks to Him, though I believe every little bit helps. So, If you’re religious, feel free to say a prayer. If your spiritual, keep him in your thoughts. If you dance with the great spaghetti monster, dance a…
