This morning on her Facebook page Carrie Newcomer put this picture and this quote from Mary Oliver. She invited friends to add some others. It is a lovely idea, and so I have created this page for us. If you have one put it in the comments below and I will add it to this page. Herewith a few of my current favorites:

“A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use.” — Carlos Castenada

“Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” — Leonard Cohen

Humans think they are smarter than dolphins because we build cars and buildings and start wars etc., and all that dolphins do is swim in the water, eat fish and play around. Dolphins believe that they are smarter …for exactly the same reasons.” — Douglas Adams, writer, dramatist, and musician

“For me, solitude is not loneliness, but a space where I can be fully aware of the myriad ways that all things, myself included, are connected.” — Susan Gibson

“And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small café in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything,”  — Douglas Adams, from “Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy”
