The Most Beautiful Fact Of All

Imagination, to really soar, must keep one foot on the ground.

I never compete; I only play.

Let every breeze draw you out of yourself.

Tears have always been easier to shed than explain.

Solitude is where one discovers one is not alone.

When I saw the geese floating on the lake I saw what my life could be.

All people die.  Is that reality or just my point of view?

Who gave fire permission to burn?

There is music you never hear unless you play it yourself.

Birds don't fly because they're in a hurry.

See the buds with your own eyes; touch the acorn with your own hand.

Defying gravity is easy; not falling is the hard thing.

Morning will come, it has no choice.

Making adjustments while moving is my idea of thinking.

Philosophy: unsound conclusions based on sound reasoning.

Being right: the human disease.

The first kiss and the first glass of wine are the best.

The direction a cloud is moving is always approved of by the wind.

What is heroic is not making life any harder than it has to be.

Words have to make sense; facts don't.  That life makes no sense is the most beautiful fact of all.

Walking Toward The Sea

Unless you're walking your thoughts will get you nowhere.

The life you have is richer than the one you dream of.

Heart to heart talks have been my mistresses.

Whenever I do nothing I feel I've accomplished a lot.

In my basket there's always room for something new.

Information is what you put in empty heads to keep them empty.

If you want to set your life in order, consider it already done.

Ask the wave as it withdraws what freedom is.

The wrong step is the right step once you take it.

Knowing how to sing, and being able to sing, is still not singing.

Nothing succeeds like indifference to success.

Thirst is a language even the grass understands.

Another person: a door you can't enter, even by knocking.

You have to test your oars in the waters of reality.

Future developments can't mar our happiness now.

The only tame lion is the one that has tamed itself.

When I walk toward the sea I know the sea will be there waiting for me.

Here's what I've learned: there's more than one way to live.
