Tips in Leading the Seamless Life™

Guiding Quotes: When More Is Simply Not Enough

For inspiration to complete last week's Mission Possible, Sherry and Diane have collected the following guiding quotes for your contemplation.

FAITH

Faith has to do with things that are not seen, and hope with things that are not in hand.
Saint Thomas Acquinas


DOUBT

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
William Shakespeare


ACTION

In the arena of human life the honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action.
      Aristotle


FIRST THINGS FIRST

I can honestly say that I was never affected by the question of the success of an undertaking. If I felt it was the right thing to do, I was for it regardless of the possible outcome.
Golda Meir (Prime Minister of Israel, 1969-74)


EXPLORE

Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain


NO ACCIDENT

It is not by accident that the happiest people are those who make a conscious effort to live useful lives. Their happiness, of course, is not a shallow exhilaration where life is one continuos intoxicating party. Rather, their happiness is a deep sense of inner peace that comes when they believe their lives have meaning and that they are making a difference for good in the world.
Ernest Fitzgerald


CONVICTIONS

Convictions without character are quickly dissolved into mere good intentions.
William L. Kynes


HAPPINESS

Happiness is not a destination.
It is a method of life.
Burton Hills
