It’s Monday (again!) Where did the weekend go?
To help you on your journey this week here are a few literary quotes from some wonderful writers that I hope will enlighten, inspire and get you movin’ in the right direction. (By the way…why do we always go right? Sorry, that’s not very funny. Cheesy really.)
“We can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.” – George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss
“There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.” – Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
readily than it hates.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter
“As long as the heart beats, as long as body and soul keep together, I cannot admit that any creature endowed with a will has need to despair of life.”- Jules Verne, Journey to the Centre of the Earth
“Be men, or be more than men. Be steady to your purposes and firm as a rock. This ice is not made of such stuff as your hearts may be; it is mutable and cannot withstand you if you say that it shall not.”- Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”- Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go!
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”- Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”- Jack Kerouac, On the Road
Until Next time…Burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars!
