The best things in life happen to you, when you’re alone. If you live by perception, as all artists must, then you sometimes have to wait a long time for your mind to tell you the next step to take…. When you’re with other people, your mind isn’t your own.

Agnes Martin

As you can see, my hands are no longer trembling and I have in my soul, in the bottom of my soul, immense skies and immense love and then again, just love, love for you. Blue rivers and hills and meadows, where my melancholies sweetly run. The universe finds space within me – but the courage to live that, is still not there.

Lucio Battisti

I paint what I like, when I like, and where I like, with occasional nostalgic journeys.

David Hockney

Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?

Danielle Laporte

Inspiration is needed in Geometry, just as much as in poetry.

Александр Пу́шкин

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over, if you just sit there.

Even on the days you don’t feel like it, showing up can make all the difference. If you show up and start the work – even though it feels so heavy to do so – what you end up making could be all you need to keep moving, to keep creating.

Tanner Christensen

If you would know what you are looking for, you would again not go beyond the known and would never discover anything new.

Read it in a book. Somehow reassuring.

Viele Menschen schwimmen mit dem Strom, manche dagegen. Ich stehe mitten im Wald und finde den Fluss nicht.

Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Christian D. Larson

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; for it becomes your destiny.

Upanishads

Wo kämen wir hin, wenn jeder sagte, wo kämen wir hin und keiner ginge, um zu sehen, wohin wir kämen, wenn wir gingen.

Ero intelligente e volevo cambiare il mondo. Ora sono saggio e sto cambiando me stesso.

Dalai Lama

If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.

Morris West

Lebenskünstler sind Menschen, die wissen, auf was sie verzichten können, über was sie hinweg sehen können, und die deshalb Gelegenheit und Muße finden, sich an dem scheinbar Nebensächlichen zu erfreuen.

The opportunity of a lifetime is to pick yourself. Quit waiting to get picked; quit waiting for someone to give you permission; quit waiting for someone to say you are officially qualified and pick yourself. It doesn’t mean you have to be an entrepreneur or a freelancer, but it does mean you stand up and say, “I have something to say. I know how to do something. I’m doing it.

Seth Godin

Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.

Maori Proverb

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.
