Quote of the Day – Barbara Brown Taylor on Faith

Today’s quote really doesn’t need much introduction. I think it really does speak for itself. It’s message is bold and open. To make bread or love, to dig in the earth, to feed an animal or cook for a stranger — these activities require no extensive commentary, no lucid theology. All they require is someone…

Quote of the Day – Bergen Evans on Words

I’ve said it before, I love words. Words, when chosen carefully can truly describe what you’re looking for, can move you, can drive others, or can help you get through any situation, with the right words. 🙂 Words are one of our chief means of adjusting to all the situations of life. The better control…

Quote of the Day – Agnes de Mille on Living

Today’s quote, by Agnes de Mille, is really a simple statement on what we already know to be true. Sometimes we’re too focused on living our life “the right way” instead of living it. Just something to think about. Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment…

Quote of the Day – Edvard Munch on Perceptions

I love any quote about how we see things in this world. How we perceive things and how life grabs us in the moment. When you look at things do you always accept it at face value or do you dig deeper? At different moments you see with different eyes. You see differently in the…

Quote of the Day – Lauren Bacall on Content

This is a great quote. We can be content if we have just a few things in life. We can also be satisfied but want more. All great things to think about. 🙂 I figure if I have my health, can pay the rent and I have my friends, I call it ‘content.’ – Lauren…

Quote of the Day – Mel Brooks on Joking

Mel Brooks has always cracked me up as a writer. Seeing a quick peek into his process is funny to me. This reminds me of the quintessential fish story. It was really, “THIS BIG.” or not. 🙂 I realised that all one really had to do was just observe. Observe and slightly exaggerate, and you…

Quote of the Day – B. C. Forbes on Hard Work

What a great quote this is. It really does spell out all the tools you need to succeed… Genius is often a short way of spelling hard work. Poverty, obscurity, struggle and ambition formed the foundation for many careers of transcendent achievement. Few marks are made in the world’s history by eight-hour-day men…. Sir Joshua…

Quote of the Day – Barbara Jordan on Today

I love this quote, it really personalizes living in the moment, living day by day. You have to take life one day at a time. It’s worth it. I live a day at a time. Each day I look for a kernel of excitement. In the morning I say: What is my exciting thing for…

Quote of the Day – Ezra Pound on New York

Eleven years ago, the twin towers in New York were stuck by a heinous act. As Americans, we watched it all happen live. Yet, it still seems unreal. Like it was only a movie. We still heal, we still remember. Never forget. And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is…

Quote of the Day – Ed Vargo on Your First Day

YAY! Today is my first day at my new job. I’m excited to begin anew. So, it’s only fitting that I should find a quote that embodies what I’m feeling today. We’re supposed to be perfect our first day on the job and then show constant improvement. – Ed Vargo
