some thoughts

I like creative quotes, inspiring words. I save those, which seem especially meaningful to my life. Here I am combining a few with photographs we have taken in places we love. Some we have been to many times-- others only once, but the memories are always there when it's a special place.

I do believe it is possible to create, even without ever writing a word or painting a picture, by simply molding one’s inner life. And that too is a deed.
-- Etty Hillesum, author

Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.

--don Miguel Rulz, author

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life.

--Bette Davis

The beginning is always today.

--Mary Wollstonecraft

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

Some great quotes today. My creative mind is kind of taken over by the other side of my brain at the moment, and I'm getting frustrated with all the planning and organizing going into the move to our new home. But I have a perfect place set up for writing.

Thank you. I have long believed our greatest creation is our life and a lot who don't think of themselves as creative lead very creative lives which inspire others when they are revealed.

Creating myself..... thanks for these quotes.... they inspire my journey.
Does this sound too New Age-y? You've gotten me thinking :)
