Why should I seek?

Why should I seek?
I am the same as He.
His essence speaks through me.
I have been looking for myself!

And as you sit

“And as you sit on the hillside, or lie prone under the trees of the forest, or sprawl wet-legged on the shingly beach of a mountain stream, the great door, that does not look like a door, opens.”

– Stephen Graham

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Your soul

Your soul is a seeker, lover, and artist, shapeshifted thru archetypal fields of energy between your darkness and light, your body and spirit, your heaven and hell, until you land in the sweet moment of surrender when you, as dancer, disappear in the dance.

~Gabrielle Roth

I live in my own place

I live in my own place, have never copied nobody even half, and at any master who lacks the grace to laugh at himself - I laugh.

Elmo said

Elmo said, “Leeta, when you judge somebody, it’s like throwing a boomerang—goes in a circle and comes back to the one throws it. Love is like that too. Always comes back.”

I've missed more than 9,000 shots

I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

— Michael Jordan


Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I dread success

I dread success. To have succeeded is to have finished one's business on earth, like the male spider, who is killed by the female the moment he has succeeded in courtship. I like a state of continual becoming, with a goal in front and not behind.

~George Bernard Shaw

That man is successful

That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.

~Robert Louis Stevenson

Something in human nature

Something in human nature causes us to start slacking off at our moment of greatest accomplishment. As you become successful, you will need a great deal of self-discipline not to lose your sense of balance, humility, and commitment.

~Ross Perot

Ideals are like stars

Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny.

~Carl Schurz

My greatest point

My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories.

— Bjorn Borg

Virtually nothing

Virtually nothing comes out right the first time. Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. The only time you don't want to fail is the last time you try something.... One fails forward toward success.

— Charles F. Kettering

I realized early

I realized early on that success was tied to not giving up. Most people in this business gave up and went on to other things. If you simply didn't give up, you would outlast the people who came in on the bus with you.

— Harrison Ford

Entrepreneurs average 3.8 failures

Entrepreneurs average 3.8 failures before final success. What sets the successful ones apart is their amazing persistence. There are a lot of people out there with good and marketable ideas, but pure entrepreneurial types almost never accept defeat.

If at first

"If at first you don't succeed,
find out if the loser gets anything."

~Bill Lyon

If at first

"If at first you don't succeed,
do it like your mother told you."

~Author Unknown

If at first

"If at first you don't succeed,
try, try again. Then quit.
There's no point in being a damn fool about it."

~W. C. Fields

If at first

"If at first you don't succeed,
destroy all evidence that you tried."
