Get Inspired

My plan for this page is to list and/or link to various things that inspire me. Obviously, this will be a work in progress. But for starters, enjoy a list of my favorite quotes:


We are what we repeatedly do.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
Douglas Adams

I reject your reality and substitute my own.
Adam Savage

Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
Felice Dunas

Living your life without periods of silence is akin to playing music without silence between the notes.
Tony Cuckson

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
Oscar Wilde

As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.
Emmanuel Teney

I've been thinking about pictures... I'm pretty sure I have way too many. I remember my mother taking her old Kodak 100 film in to get it developed and showing me snapshots from the first day of school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas - all taken with one 12-exposure roll of film. I've decided that having more pictures doesn't necessarily mean you have more memories - or even more detailed memories. It just means you have more pictures.
Stacy Julian

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.
St. Augustine

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much.
Mother Teresa

..but the biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three on them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.
