Favourite quotes

My website background features one of my photos of the coast at Sorrento, Victoria, Australia. Sorrento is one of my favourite places in the world, where history meets the present, cocooned by the warm waters of Port Philip Bay and the colder depths of Bass Strait. Perfect for quiet walks and silent introspection at sunrise. Places like these give me strength that I might otherwise not have to draw upon in this earthly frame.

I also draw a lot of courage and strength from the epigrams and writings of other people – be they writers, philosophers, dreamers, realists, or scientists. Here are some of my favourites.

Words are the voice of the heart.” – Confucius”We would never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.” – Helen Keller

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” – Oscar Wilde

“Well, I’ve wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I’m happy to state I finally won out over it.” – Elwood P. Dowd

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost

“The sleeper must awaken.” – Frank Herbert

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart … Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” – Carl Jung
