DMA Portland: Quote of the Day!

“Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish.””

– Chuck Palahniuk, author of the great “Fight Club”.

“Serene, I fold my hands and wait, Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea; I rave no more ‘gainst time or fate, For lo! my own shall come to me.”

– John Burroughs, one of the first Greats in the Green movement way back when!

“Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people’s approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.”

– Lao Tzu, Father of Taoism.

“Life moves. Life does not stop. Life changes on a whim and throws you curve balls. Your goal is not to stop Life from happening, but to remain calm and centered as the seeming chaos happens around you. As you calm your mind and cultivate trust you turn from a victim of circumstance into a powerful creator of your life.”

– Jackson Kiddard, author & polymath
