JUNE REVEAL : RAK #1

JUNE REVEAL : RAK #1

Postby Niru » May 28th, '16, 7:28 pm

Walden is full of wonderful quotes. I used to copy my favorite lines from books (include On Walden Pond) into notebooks when I was in high school.

One of my favorite Henry David Thoreau quotes is "We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

What is one of your favorite quotes (any author)?

Was just chatting about favorite books with a friend online today, one of my favorites is Persuasion by Jane Austen, I literally wore my first copy to shreds, I now use it for book text in my scrapping!

I love the romantic quote from it:

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope...I have loved none but you.” Just love that part of the book!

I love this one by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and wrote it along the mantel of our fireplace:

"Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

by Lenard Cohen

It reminds me that for all my striving and working toward perfection.....not :P Life, the Universe, The Creator just wants me to live life and be present. No perfection. Messy and Juicy is what life is.

Picking out quotes for the Planner designs each month is one of my favorite parts of the whole process!

This is one of my favorites;
“Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
― Hans Christian Andersen

I don't have a favorite quote, but I love quotes. I write them down in my DaisyDori each month. Here is one from this month: "Deep in their roots all flowers keep the light." -Theodore Roosevelt

Not quite as serious as all of yours, but anything by Douglas Adams. I re-read his books yearly.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Just like moon and like suns
with the certainty of tides,
just like hopes springing high,
still I'll RISE! ~ Maya Angelou
