So I thought it might be good to share quotes that have powerful meaning/resonance for us.

I'm hoping this thread can stick around for a while ... and bear new fruit regularly. :-)

Please contribute! Quotes from all walks of life are welcome, Self knows no boundaries, right?
I feel that about motivation and inspiration videos online. I like Anthony Robbins or Michael Jordan vids. Especially the one on failure. I watch some of the Mcgregor videos. I like how he predicts things and has a vision for his life. I am trying to do that this year and vision my way through life.
Sweet!
Have any quotes you like from them that you could add here?

but not so open, that your brains fall out."

Is that what is meant by "losing your mind?" ;-)

"There is a reality which, coming upon the mind, transforms it. You don't have to do a thing. It operates, it functions, it has a being of its own; but the mind must feel it, must know it and not speculate, not have all kinds of ideas about it. A mind that is seeking it will never find it; but there is that state, unquestionably. In saying this I am not speculating, nor am I stating it as an experience of yesterday. It is so. There is that state; and if you have it, you will find everything is possible, because that is creation, that is love, that is compassion."

Krishnamurti
