"There was a star danced, and under that was I born."
I love and collect quotes. I had pages of them typed out of ones I had collected over the years up through living in our previous house...but now I can't find them. I wonder if they are on our old computer, I need to check.
Not a week goes by it seems that I don't read a quote that I add to my 'new' quote list. Here are a few that I love:
"Whatever we possess becomes of double value when we have the opportunity of sharing it with others."
"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?
--Mary Oliver, The Summer Day
Giving Birth and Being Born
Brings us into the Essence of Creation
Where the human spirit
is Courageous and Bold
And the Body,
Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.
We came spinning out of nothingness,
The stars form a circle,
And in the center we dance.
We cannot depend on a market-informed cultural consciousness to enlighten us--we have to do it ourselves. --Raleigh Briggs
I have more quotes (many more!) but will stop! I do believe I will also craft a post about a book I'm seriously loving, Women Who Run With the Wolves. Can't say enough good about it--I'm going through it with a highlighter. I would love to discuss it with other women who've read it and am hopeful that will happen in this new year.
Any other quote collectors?
