Changing it up
I've decided that this idea to do a daily blog based on interesting quotations has played itself out. I got bored with it, and it was taking time away from something I've shined on for a long time: making stuff. So instead, I've decided to ease off of the "...

"The more one judges, the less one loves."--Honore de Balzac
Love has nothing to do with being a perfect 10.  Love has nothing to do with being a good provider.  Love has nothing to do with being tall, dark, and handsome.  Love has nothing to do with being charming.  Love has nothing to do with being smart.  Love has...

"You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love"--Henry Drummond
Fear and anger shut you down. What is closed cannot receive. Nothing changes if you haven't room in your heart to accept what life brings you. Love opens you up. What is opened is receptive. When you love, you welcome life into your heart and you begin to t...

"All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."-- Helen Keller
This is true and more than this: what we love is already a part of us. We are made of love and made for loving. Love is who we are. We've been taught not to love, but what we recognize when we finally overcome our training is that love sets us free. It feel...

"Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place."-- Zora Neale Hurston
To feel comfortable enough to be yourself is the cherry on top of the love sundae. Feeling safe with someone is a sure sign of love. It's absence means that you're mistaking love for something else.

"We live in the world when we love it."-- Rabindranath Tagore
Love dissolves barriers; at least we want it to. We want to merge with what we love. When we love to paint, losing ourselves in the process is the greatest pleasure. When we love a person, feeling we can be who we truly are in their presence is the greatest...

"We have enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another."-- Jonathan Swift
Ironic, right? So many religions preach loving one another, but so few actually practice what they preach. When people join together to worship might it be because they feel there is safety in numbers, and if you need to gather together to be safe then does...

"The art of love is largely the art of persistence."-- Albert Ellis
Love is as natural to us as breathing, yet it's so hard to love! We've been raised to see others as competitors, dangerous, wrong-headed, different, above or below us.  Love demands that we be blind to the prejudices we've been taught. Love must be uncondit...

"Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well." Vincent Van Gogh
And people think Van Gogh was crazy.  Well, maybe he was, but boy, what he describes here is a wonderful way to live a life. The aliveness he brought to his paintings testifies to his love for his subjects, be they human, flowers, fields, or stars, and I'm ...

"Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place."-- Zora Neale Hurston
Your hungry soul craves love. Feed it well. All flavors of love are welcome: romantic, parent/child, brotherly, spiritual, love of doing, playing, being, competing, art, acting, music, comedy: all love, one love, nothing is rejected, all are consumed with g...
