Quotes-Tipping my hat to favorite authors

Golden Spiral Shell

Here are quotes from my favorite authors.  They have inspired me on my continued pursuit towards a creative life:

“We already have everything we need.”
-Pema Chodron, Start Where You Are

“Show only love, be only love.”
-Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Parents

“The youthful naive nature begins to understand that if there is a secret something, if there is a shadow something, if there is a forbidden something, it needs to be looked into.”
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run with the Wolves

“Many of us wish we were more creative.  Many of us sense we are more creative, but are unable to effectively tap that creativity.”
-Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way

“Art is not apart.  It is a continuum within which all participate; we all function in art, use the skills of art and engage in the action of artists everyday.”
-Eric Booth, The Everyday Work of Art



  1. And to mine. . . .

    “It’s a good thing to have all the props pulled out from under us occasionally. It gives us a sense of what is rock and what is sand” _Madeline L’Engle

    “It’s hard to fight an enemy that has outposts in your head.” Sally Kempton (quoted by Anne Lamott)

  2. Thanks, Jen!
