Inspiring Quotations

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Barbara Winter (Author of Making a Living without a Job… I wrote about her here) has inspired me again! I love quotations, and she has a full page of some of her own favorites, here on her blog:

Here are two that hit me particularly deeply:

All sorrow and trouble of this world is caused by unhappy people….The search for contentment is, therefore, not merely a self-preserving and self-benefiting act, but also a generous gift to the world. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert.

and

We must do what we conceive to be right and not bother our heads or burden our souls  with whether we’ll be successful. Because if we don’t do the right thing, we’ll do the wrong thing and we’ll be part of the disease and not part of the cure. ~ E. F. Schumacher

As you can see, Barbara’s book has inspired me, as well. I really wanted to share a quote from that very book here with you.

Unfortunately, I have put the book in a place where it does not belong, sometime after taking that photo. Must find it… meanwhile, I recommend a visit to Barbara’s blog.
