Life is fragrant

Life is fragrant, gusty, and surprising. In the following inspirational quotes, muses about life reach up and grab your throat. ‘Life is a splendid torch’ in George Bernard Shaw’s inspirational quote. ‘Life chooses us’ says Addie Johnson’s inspirational quote. J. Stone speaks about artists whose medium is life itself in his inspirational quote.

      I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “Brief candle” to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
      -George Bernard Shaw

      You often hear amazing, satisfied, courageous people say, “I had no idea I would be doing what I’m doing today. My life chose me.”
      -Addie Johnson

      How can your life choose you? People may think its luck or happenstance when opportunities knock on their door (or knock them down flat). But I believe that to make choices that will affect your life for the better, you must relinquish control. You must find a frame of mind from which you can make real choices, and that requires that you be in the moment, ready to evaluate the facts of your life honestly. One problem that many of us overachievers face is our ability to plan and organize ad nauseum. We’re relying too heavily on our left brain, which makes lists and generates orderly outcomes. Sometimes we have to put a muzzle on our efficient left brain and let loose the messy troublemaker, the right brain. Put on some music, make a drawing of your problem without using any words, or try a solution you think might be out of your reach. The right brain takes creative leaps of imagination, sees the bigger picture, and is the compass that can help you choose your life.
      -Addie Johnson

      I wish that life should not be cheap, but sacred,
      I wish the days to be as centuries, loaded, fragrant.
      -Ralph Waldo Emerson

      Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
      -Isak Dinesan

      The most invisible creators I know of are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible—without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt—their medium is their being. Whatever their presence touches has increase life. They see and don’t have to draw. They are the artists of being alive.
      -J. Stone

I hope you enjoy this group of inspirational quotes. The great Mystery of Life pulses through each of us. We ever seek to understand and sometimes inspirational quotes give us glimmers of knowing.

Inspirational Quotes on Being Alive

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Inspirational Quotes on Being Alive help me get through some of the bad times. Sometimes when I’m contracted, I forget Agatha’s inspirational quote ‘just to be alive is a grand thing.’ So here are some luscious inspirational quotes to help you remember. Sarah Ban Breathnach had a ceiling tile fall on her head in a restaurant. She lost sight, taste, hearing, balance, and her ability to speak well, or understand language for a time. Even wearing clothes hurt. As she began to regain these lost senses, she was touched by the wonder of the ordinary. Our life is precious. Being alive counts. Read these inspirational quotes to remember how sweet it is being alive. Savor these inspirational quotes when you want to celebrate. Contemplate these inspirational quotes to remember what a treasure you are.

      It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth-and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up-that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
      -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

      Approach the day as if it were an adagio-a melody played in an easy, graceful manner. Listen to music that soothes and uplifts your spirit. And while you listen, pause to consider how all the individual notes come together harmoniously to give expression to the entire score.
      -Sarah Ban Breathnach

      So it shall be with your world. With harmony as your guide, trust that your everyday moments will soon begin to resonate in a rhapsody of fulfillment.
      -Sarah Ban Breathnach

      I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.

      -Agatha Christie

      Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
      -Anna Eleanor Roosevelt

      And did you get what you wanted from this life, even so?
      I did.
      And what did you want?
      To call myself beloved, to
      feel myself
      Beloved on the earth.
      -Raymond Carver – “Late Fragment”

      I have passionately fallen in love with Life—despite all of its complexities, compromises, and contradictions–and Life has passionately revealed how much I’m loved, in spite of mine. Believe me, you will never find a lover who will adore, desire, caress, embrace, and delight you more than Life.

      -Sarah Ban Breathnach –

Inspirational Quotes -Life

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

Inspirational Quotes on life read like poetry. Inspirational Quotes have irony. Inspirational Quotes help us remember the great Mystery. Yesterday I learned that a dear friend died. Sometimes it is these terribly wonderful moments of rawness that help us rediscover the power of life. As I read the following inspirational quotes, I thought of Douglas. Even though he passed, his life was a flame, and I remember his invisible sun. They are in me now for eternity. Please enjoy these inspirational quotes. I will be making Thomas Broune’s inspirational quote into a piece of art. If you wish to have me make any of these inspirational quotes into artwork for you, please fill out the form at the bottom. Perhaps you know someone who needs to remember to “Sit. Feast on your Life” as Walcott implores in his inspirational quote.


      Life is a pure flame and we live by an invisible sun within us.

      -Thomas Broune


      Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

      -Soren Kierkegaard


      Too often we act as if we were put on this earth to die.

      -Ken Macrorie

      Despite our search for stability and prediction, for the center of our lives to hold firm, it never does. Life is wilder than that – a flow we can’t command or stave off.
      -Sharon Salzberg


      Every situation–no every moment–is of infinite worth; for it is the representative of a whole eternity.

      -Goethe

      To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings-it’s all a miracle.
      -Arthur Rubinstein

      Magical things happen every day, if we allow it. Think of daylight, of the stars at night, a flower. A dandelion is a miracle.
      -Pamela Travers

      All moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.
      -Frederick Buechner

      There is a divine meaning in the life of the world, of man, of human persons, of you and me.
      -Martin Buber


      Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage – it can be delightful.

      -George Bernard Shaw

      Sit. Feast on your life.
      -Derek Walcott

      Somewhere at the center of life is something ineffably and unalterably right and good, and . . . this ‘rightness’ can be discovered.
      -David Whyte
