When you follow your bliss… doors will open
where you would not have thought there would be doors;
and where there wouldn’t be a door for anyone else.
This above all—to thine own self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.
—William Shakespeare (British Playwright)
Life is the soul’s nursery – its training place for the destinies of eternity.
—William Makepeace Thackeray (English Novelist)
If you do the best you can, you will find, nine times out of ten, that you have done as well as or better than anyone else.
—William Feather (American Publisher)
The whole world we travel with our thoughts, finding nowhere anyone as precious as one’s own self. Since each and every person is so precious to themselves let the self-respecting harm no other being.
A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.
It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
—Tony Robbins (American Actor Author)
If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.
Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day.
—William C. Durant (American Entrepreneur)
