Quotes I love

I've taken a lot of Daisey pictures lately....sorry if you're tired of seeing them but I think they are stunning. This one I think is my favorite...What do you do with a bunch of Daisey pictures?? This alone is a good reason for a blog ;) As you know, I love to read. When I read something I feel I can really relate to I write it down. Today I'm going to share some with you. Enjoy!

"When I was very young and the urge to be someplace else was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch...I fear this disease is incurable"

"A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safe guards, policing and coercion are fruitless...we do not take a trip a trip takes us."

"A burning desire to go, to move, to get underway, anyplace, away from any here."

-John Steinbeck taken from his book Travels With Charlie

"I want to do it because I want to do it" -Amelia Earhart 1937

Of course this quote is in response to the question of why she wanted to fly around the world, which of course led to her death....I still choose to find it inspirational...

"I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length . I want to have lived the width of it as well." - Diane Ackerman

" I gave myself up so completely to present desires and pleasures that I had no energy to waste on mere wishful thinking" - unknown

"There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in"

- Leonard Cohen
