. . . justifying of self is blaming someone else.
- Edgar Cayce

"Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action."
- Benjamin Disraeli

"Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live."
- Nicolas de Chamfort

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself."
- Leo Tolstoy

"One ship sails East, And another West, By the self-same winds that blow, Tis the set of the sails And not the gales, That tells the way we go."
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."
- Helen Keller

"You must do the things you think you cannot do."
- Eleanor Roosevelt

I find it so much easier to think, talk and write about life than live it. It is easier to think about what I "could" have done, beat myself up for what I "should" have done and find reasons why I "can't" do what I want to do.

So today I choose to do what is unreasonable, unthinkable and impossible. It is these things which all reside, hidden from our sight, waiting patiently, for us to step into the moment, reach out and pick them like fresh fruit from a tree.
