A thought on creativity for our consideration today.


Compassion is the heart that never stops loving others. It is like a wellspring that never runs dry. —Ryuho Okawa
I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death. —Nelson Mandela
Fear grows out of the things we think; it lives in our minds. Compassion grows out of the things we are, and lives in our hearts. —Barbara Garrison
At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And with steam, you can power a train.  —S.L. Parker
You express the truth of your character with the choice of your actions. —Steve Maraboli
To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. —David Viscott
After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul's indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer. —William R. Alger
Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners. —Lawrence Sterne
Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don't rent them out to tomorrow. —Jerry Spinelli
Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. —August Wilson
No soul that aspires can ever fail to rise; no heart that loves can ever be abandoned. Difficulties exist only that in overcoming them we may grow strong, and they who have suffered are able to save. —Annie Besant
Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it. —Sir Winston Churchill
A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. —Steve Maraboli
One must care about a world one will not see. —Bertrand Russell
Ask not for an easy life...ask for the strength to face the elements, to weather the storms; to be the might for the right and the weak, to be the voice for those who cannot speak, to see one's dreams to fruition with dignity, integrity, and grace. —Giac Nguyen
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. —Joseph Chilton Pearce
