“Remember Where You Came From / Life Moves On”


“My importance to the world is relatively small.  On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous.  I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy.  It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own.  I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.”   (Noel Coward)



“It seems as if only now I really know who I am.  My strengths, my weaknesses, my jealousies – it’s as if all of it has been boiling in a pot for all these years, and as it boils, it evaporates into steam, and all that’s left in the pot in the end is your essence, the stuff you started out with in the very beginning.”   (Kirk Douglas)



“Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes.  Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly.  Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end.  What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind.  Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”   (Henry Miller)



“Remember where you came from, where you’re going, and why you created this mess you got yourself into in the first place.”   (Richard Bach, Illusions)



“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”   (Kahlil Gibran)



“People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.”   (Paulo Coelho)



“It only takes one person to change your life:  you.”   (Ruth Casey)
