The Walking Shoes of Quotes

Below is an assemblage of quotes that have provided me walking shoes for the creative endeavors I take on. I hope that it will offer you inspiration for the ongoing journey inherent in creative process:

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” ~~Henry David Thoreau

‎”The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”–Albert Einstein

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” ~~Anaïs Nin

‎”Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”~~Anais Nin

‎”The core of creation is to summon an image and the power to work with the image.”~~Anais Nin

‎”Art must suppress violence, and only art can do so”~~Leo Tolstoy

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”~~Steve Jobs, 2005

An old Hasidic proverb: “Give people a fact or an idea and you enlighten their minds; give them a story and you touch their souls.”

“I’ve realised that to try and slot myself into that world is to diminish what I have to offer. And I do have something to offer but it’s just in a different dialect, a different language.”~~Michael Stipe

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” ~~ Carl Jung

‎”Our duty is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation.”~~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

‎”Artists give the world something they didn’t know was missing…”~~Daniel Pink
