Julia’s Quotes to Inspire

posted by vreiss

As her post-”Artist’s Way” work has seemed more and more recycled, one thing I still love about Julia Cameron’s books is the little quotes she puts in the margins. I’m always happy to dip into these bite-sized, short-attention-span founts of wisdom.

Julia’s latest, “Finding Water; The Art of Perseverance,” landed on my desk today. Here are some juicy quotes from it for you to chew:

“Think before you speak is criticism’s motto; speak before you think is creation’s.” –E.M. Forster

“Happiness walks on busy feet.” – Kitte Turmell

“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I am a daylight atheist.” – Brendan Behan

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung

“Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t” – Erica Jong

“The outer world, with all its phenomena, is filled with divine splendor. We must have experienced the divine within ourselves before we can hope to discover it in our environment.” – Rudolf Steiner

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am
