inspiring quotes

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present!

- anonymous, attributed to multiple authors


You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

- Eleanor Roosevelt


Contrary to what we usually believe, moments like these, the best moments in our lives, are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times--although such experiences can also be enjoyable, if we have worked hard to attain them. The best moments usually occur when a person's body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile. Optimal experience is thus something that we make happen. For a child, it could be placing with trembling fingers the last block on a tower she has built, higher than any she has built so far; for a swimmer, it could be trying to beat his own record; for a violinist, mastering an intricate musical passage. For each person there are thousands of opportunities, challenges to expand ourselves.

- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi


Most enjoyable activities are not natural; they demand an effort that initially one is reluctant to make. But once the interaction starts to provide feedback to the person's skills, it usually begins to be intrinsically rewarding.

I'll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don't know.
I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset,
The light on your door to show that you're home.

When you think the night has seen your mind,
That inside you're twisted and unkind,
Let me stand to show that you are blind.
Please put down your hands 'cause I see you.

I find it hard to believe
You don't know the beauty that you are.
But if you don't, let me be your eyes,
A hand in your darkness, so you won't be afraid.

When you think the night has seen your mind,
That inside you're twisted and unkind,
Let me stand to show that you are blind.
Please put down your hands 'cause I see you.

I'll be your mirror.

- Lou Reed


Have you ever considered how most of the things you want to change in your life could be solved with only an extra moment of self-discipline?

- Jerhoam


The chattering mind is an unwelcome roommate. You are evicting that roommate. You would not tolerate this in another human!

- Jerhoam
