    “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” Unless it was our dreams that caused them. 😉

      Hmmm…you means dreams gone wrong? Maybe so! I think I read it as not living dreams because we are too fearful to pursue them…too scared to take a risk. ~ Sheila

        No, I mean dreams that are just scary…and sometimes influence our conscious behavior whether we remember them or not. In fact I’ve had a few lately that have clearly had a negative influence on my waking thoughts, and have been unusually difficult to forget. So, in that sense, one can be living their dreams…but in a very unpleasant way.

          Yes, I see what you mean. I’m afraid I wasn’t thinking that deeply! I was just reading the statements as dreams = positive and fears = negative…but I agree there are other ways that could be interpreted! As usual, you’re perspective is broader than mine 🙂 ~ Sheila

    Those are great! Copying and pasting them to my notebook of quotes. I especially like the Walt Whitman one…. Thanks for sharing –

      I loved that one too! So simple, and yet so perfectly communicates the most important element is togetherness! I’m forever saving quotes too! Occasionally I reread them and feel like I’m among old friends! ~ Sheila

    Gratitude turning into enough…
    Usually does!

      Yes, gratitude is the best medicine in life I believe! Makes everything better! ~ Sheila

    You know I adore quotes. F. Scott Fitzgerald was so witty and clever and really knew how to turn a phrase. Wonderful collection.

      I like F. Scott Fitzgerald also…yes, he had a way with words. I love quotes too. When I’m having a lazy afternoon I love to just browse quotes. Goodreads is a great resource…usually I feel like there’s too much great material to choose from! ~ Sheila
