It’s “Deep Thoughts” Friday, and I feel in the need for a bit of inspiration. Thankfully, I can always find a few quotes to cheer me up!

Here are some that helped me get into gear for work this morning:

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”  ― Albert Einstein

“The deeper thought is, the taller it becomes.”  ― Dejan Stojanovic, The Sun Watches the Sun

“When a poet (though I’d say “artist”) digs himself into a hole, he doesn’t climb out. He digs deeper, enjoys the scenery, and comes out the other side enlightened.” ― Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

“If you’re in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe it’ll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them.” ― Jack Handey


“I have found so much beauty in the dark, as I have found a lot of horror in the light.” ― Azereth Skivel

“You are only as free as you think you are and freedom will always be as real as you believe it to be.” ― Robert M. Drake, Beautiful Chaos

“Can a person who has been brought up in the heart of a thick dark forest, where one has to beat a path through multiple layers of trees just to take a letter to the post office, have any conception of what it’s like to spend one’s entire childhood waiting for a single tree to grow?” ― Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir, The Greenhouse

“I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are good people and bad people. You’re wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.”  ― Terry Pratchett

“Silence is the best melody.” ― Azereth Skivel

“One of the biggest challenge in life is to see things for what they are instead of what you want them to be.” ― Saahil Prem

“In so far as we cherish the tangibles, we must value the intangibles. The intangibles, though as latent as they may seem to be, they are solemnly tangible.” ― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

The splendid thing about falling apart silently… is that you can start over as many times as you like.”  ― Sanober Khan

“Who I am stops me from being who I want to be. Who I want to be stops me from being who I am. I am who I am. I’m one of a kind. I am me.”  ― Kyle Tomaszewski

Feeling motivated? I know I am! Have a blessed day…
