A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

Possiblities and happiness.

I watched The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith the other day, and this scene reminded me about pursuing our dreams. Here are ten quotes to inspire and encourage us today.

What will you accomplish today?

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” - St. Francis of Assisi

If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves. Thomas Alva Edison

“The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.” - Arthur C. Clarke

“Whether you believe you can or not, you’re right.” - Henry Ford

“You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.” - Deepak Chopra

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein

“Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.” - Cher

We  are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy  follows like a shadow that never leaves. – The Buddha

“Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed, not by strength, but perseverance.” – Samuel Johnson

“Just do it” – Nike

So what impossible thing will you carry out today?
