There’s so much in simplicity

Sim­plic­i­ty should not be iden­ti­fied with bare­ness.”

A Moment’s Pause

Life was not intend­ed to be sim­ply a round of work, no mat­ter how inter­est­ing and impor­tant that work may be. A moment’s pause to watch the glo­ry of a sun­rise or a sun­set is soul-sat­is­fy­ing, while a bird’s song will set the steps to music all day long.” Lau­ra Ingalls Wilder, The Farm Jour­nal­ist

Trust Yourself and Try

Trust the still, small voice that says, “this might work and I’ll try it.”
–Diane Mariechild

Nourish Growth

Crit­i­cism, like rain, should be gen­tle enough to nour­ish a man’s growth with­out destroy­ing his roots.”
–Frank A. Clark

There’s a cer­tain fear of sim­plic­i­ty. I think that’s the thing, when you’re younger as an artist, you get this idea in your head that com­plex­i­ty equals qual­i­ty. The more notes you’re play­ing, the bet­ter.”
–Patrick Stump

Whoso­ev­er is delight­ed in soli­tude is either a wild beast or a god.”

Rest to Grow

Take rest; a field that has rest­ed gives a boun­ti­ful crop.” –Ovid

Life is About Creating Yourself

Life isn’t about find­ing your­self. Life is about cre­at­ing your­self.”
― George Bernard Shaw

Thrive Not Survive

My mis­sion in life is not mere­ly to sur­vive, but to thrive; and to do so with some pas­sion, some com­pas­sion, some humor, and some style.” –Maya Angelou
