Some quotes to ponder in the new year (thanks to the Mastery Foundation)

You should never hesitate to trade your cow for a handful of magic beans.   --Tom Robbins

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 you old nonsense.  --Ralph Waldo Emerson

If it is not true, it is very well invented. --Giordano Bruno

Life is short and we have too little time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us. So, be swift to love and make haste to be kind.  --Henri-Frederic Amiel

Do you remember all the things you were worrying about a year ago? How did they work out? Didn't you waste a lot of fruitless energy on account of most of them? Didn't most of them turn out all right after all?  --Dale Carnegie

I swear to you, there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell.  --Walt Whitman

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  --Martin Luther King, Jr.

What is soul? It's like electricity--we don't really know what it is, but it is a force that can light up a room.  --Ray Charles

He who cannot change the very fabric of his thought will never be able to change reality, and will never, therefore, make any progress.   --Anwar Sadat

Our task is to listen to the news that is always arriving out of silence. --Rainer Maria Rilke

Those whom the gods love grow young.  --Oscar Wilde


Happy New Year! And Happy, Deepening Pondering!
