Some words to ponder

I dipped into my Mastery Foundation quote box and found some I wanted to share. Happy Pondering!

"If one does not have wild dreams of achievement, there is no spur even to get the dishes washed. One must think like a hero to behave like a merely decent human being."
                                                                       --May Sarton

"It would solve a lot of problems if we enjoyed what we are doing."
                                                                 --Sister Margaret Rose McSparren

"To achieve the impossible, it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought."
                                                                 --Tom Robbins

"We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated."
                                                                  --Maya Angelou

"Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat."
                                                                   --Robert Frost

"Love, all alike, no season knows, nor clime
            Nor hours. days, months,
            which are the rags of time."
                                                                      --John Donne

"Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious."
                                                                     --Brandon Gill

                                    "It ain't what you don't know
                                       that gets you in trouble.
                                      It's what you know for sure
                                       that just ain't so."
                                                                      --Mark Twain

"For myself I am an optimist---
it does not seem to be much use
           being anything else."
                                              --Winston Churchill

"The truth may well be even more difficult to relate than it is to find."
                                                --Albert Murray
