A few times in my life, I have read or heard quotes that literally changed the direction of my life.
Inspirational quotes that have grounding /reminding me there is more to this life then pain and all its other impasses. Outside of continual learning they have also shaken my perceptions …….be it in my life and as this is a property forum in my wealth.
“To be shaken out of the ruts of ordinary perception, to be shown for a few timeless hours the outer and the inner world, not as they appear to an animal obsessed with words and notions, but as they are apprehended, directly and unconditionally, by Mind at Large – this is an experience of inestimable value to everyone.” Aldous Huxley. The Doors of Perception
I’d like and I’m sure the community here at large would love to hear your favored quotes and maybe how it changed your life and wealth.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and alwayswill solve the problems of the human race”
Life is a sword that wounds, but cannot wound itself; like a eye that sees, but cannot see itself…….

"You can only be yourself, but you can be very good at it" Frank Sinatra
One of life's most fulfilling moments occurs in that split second when the familiar is suddenly transformed into the dazzling aura of the profoundly new…. These breakthroughs are too infrequent, more uncommon than common; and we are mired most of the time in mundane and the trivial. The shocker: What seems mundane and trivial is the very stuff that discovery is made of. The only difference is our perspective, our readiness to put the pieces together in an entirely new way and see patterns where only shadows appeared just a moment before. E.B.

"Life as we know it can only exist through the blessing of uncertainty; hence the alternative to this uncertain world is a certain world. In such a world.. all life would stop…..Security is also a myth. Yet security is there. We feel its presence. But … we must accept the uncertainty of our positions. Without that uncertainty, there is no world as we know it………"
