Quotes From Emerson
"“Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
“To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy is to set your own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great person is the one, who in the midst of the crowd, keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance. Success comes from within, not from without.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Quotes about stillness from various authors
"Love works miracles in stillness."
"My heart is tuned to the quietness that the stillness of nature inspires."
~Hazrat Inayat Khan
"Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance." ~Morgan Freeman
"True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment."
"True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found."
"Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness."
Let us leave a little room for reflection in our lives, room too for silence. Let us look within ourselves and see whether there is some delightful hidden place inside where we can be free of noise and argument. Let us hear the Word of God in stillness and perhaps we will then come to understand it.
"The easiest and quickest way to reach the still point is in nature. There is a tremendous amount of stillness in the busyness of nature. If we can find the still point in nature, we can find it in our bodies. Our body is nature. The still point in nature is also the still point in us."
~ Donna Goddard
“Within you there is a stillness and sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself”
