I have been rummaging for inspiration lately, where ever I can find it.  I listen for it in friends' voices, I look for it in others' eyes, I seek it out, I crave it.  It's not a rarity, but rather just something I cannot get enough of.  It's the unquenchable thirst for understanding, for stimulation, for insight.  

As part of my quest, I always look for new quotes.  It's something I have been doing since I was a little girl- finding truth in others' brilliance.  Extracting epiphanies from ordinary statements.  

These are just some of the quotes I have been stuck on lately, trying hard to grab the words, and run with them.  After all "words are just words unless you live them."

'living is a form of not being sure,
not knowing what next or how...
we guess. we may be wrong,
but we take leap after leap in the dark.'

~ agnes de mille~

'as human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery...
we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
the greatest obstacles to inner peace 
are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment,
fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion and a sense
of universal responsibility are the sources of peace
and happiness.'

~ the dalai lama~

'there is no way to peace
peace is the way.'

~ a.j. muste~

'what we seek we shall find;
what we flee from flees from us.'

~ralph waldo emerson~

'at times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.'

~albert schweitzer~

'i will not let anyone walk through my mind with dirty feet.'


  'Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.'
~1 Corinthians 13~ 
'don't forget to love yourself.' 
~Soren Kierkegaard~
