On trying things …

Only one who wanders finds new paths.
~ Norwegian proverb

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
– T.R.R. Tolkien

On attitude

Some people are born on third base,
but go through life thinking they hit a triple.

On love …

The Night has a thousand eyes,
And the Day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.

– Francis William Bourdillon

On listening …

When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know.
When you listen, you may learn something new

Warrior and the storm

Came across a quote today, that resonated with me.

Fate whispers to the warrior
"You cannot withstand the storm."
The warrior whispers back
"I am the storm"
