–Malcolm X

THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.”
–André Gide

“I used to think that nails-down-a-chalkboard was the worst sound in the world. Then I moved on to people-eating-cereal-on-the-phone. But only this week did I stumble across the rightful winner: it’s the sound of a baggage carousel coming to a grinding halt, having reunited every passenger on your flight with their luggage, except for you.”
–Sloane Crosley

“It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.”
–Chuck Palahniuk

THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“Understand that the right to choose your own path is a sacred privilege. Use it. Dwell in possibility.”
–Oprah Winfrey

“So thoroughly and sincerely are we compelled to live, reverencing our life, and denying the possibility of change. This is the only way, we say; but there are as many ways as there can be drawn radii from one centre. All change is a miracle to contemplate; but it is a miracle which is taking place every instant.”
–Henry David Thoreau

“I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I go for anything new that might improve the past.”
–Clara Barton

PRAYER & MEDITATION
