Inspiring Quotes

The following are more of those quotes that I found in a drawer in the Tucson house. I left them there for possible renters to read, but I copied them for my own reference. Photos are some of my personal favorites from 2009.


The beginning is always today.
Mary Wollstonecraft


Man's main task is to give birth to himself.
Erich Fromm, psychoanalyst and sociologist


I pack my trunk, embrace my friends, embark on the sea, and at last wake up in Naples, and there beside me is the Stern Fact, the Sad Self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.
Robert Louis Stevenson


The longest journey is the journey inward.
Dag Hammarskjold


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

Rain . . . Do you take the pictures or does the Farm Boss? Regardless, they are great. The quotes you quoted are deeper and more complicated than usual. The ones I like are red-neck simple. A few came in the mail yesterday:

* Your fences need to be horse-high and pig tight.

*Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

* Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Happy New Year !

Dixon

they are always a mix of ones he took or I took and often later I'd not be able to tell who took what. I think most of these though were mine
