New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Reflective Quotes from the Masters

YOU 2012: Tap Into Your Inner Magician by Janice Taylor, Self-Help Artist (art that invokes happy wisdom)

Alice came to a fork in the road. “Which road do I take?” she asked.
“Where do you want to go?” responded the Cheshire cat.
“I don’t know,” Alice answered.
“Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

In this moment of reflection, which the New Year often provides, I offer you some thoughts from some of our most respected and best philosophers, writers and just plain folk that may help us find our way.

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. ~ Henry David Thoreau

The fish trap exists because of the fish. Once you’ve gotten the fish you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit. Once you’ve gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning. Once you’ve gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can talk with him? ~ Chuang Tzu

The best things in life make you sweaty. ~ Edgar Allen Poe

It requires a great deal of faith for a man to be cured by his own placebos. ~John L. McClenahan

You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body. ~ C S Lewis

The human race is a monotonous affair.  Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Plato says that the unexamined life is not worth living.  But what is the examined life turns out to be a clunker as well? ~ Kurt Vonnegut

If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering. ~ Viktor E. Frankl

Just living is not enough … One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower. ~ Hans Christian Anderson
