Yes, I know we have had a thread about SONGS which move us, and I am all over that, like a butt rash after chemo.
BUTT !!! , sorry.... but.... what about the power of the spoken/written word ?
I would love to be able to break out into "Don't Worry Be Happy" at a moments notice, but, much as I love music, as soon as I break out..folks would Break Away (apologies to Kelly Clarkson.)
SO.....on one of the martial arts forums I frequent, we have had a thread of just plain good 'ol words that we mere mortals can pass along. Should warn you though, martial artists are replete with ages and ages of ancient wisdoms !
I would like to start off, and would love to hear from others, any words of "reality", love, support, advice or wisdom, which has impacted your journey, and YES, either in a positive manner or not so positive, if it helps getting it out there, and it moved YOU for whatever reason.
1. Whether you think you CAN, or think you can't.....YOU ARE RIGHT. (Henry Ford)
2. If everybody is thinking the same...somebody is NOT thinking. (George Patton)
3. "...................The secret
which got lost neither hides
nor reveals itself, it shows forth
tokens. And we rush
to catch up. ...... " (Charles Olson, American poet)
4. If you love someone....hurry up and show them. ( Just a saying on a card, tacked above my desk at work.)
