A Quote by Richard David Bach on fly and kindness

"We can start working with time if you wish," Chiang said, "till you can fly the past and the future.  And then you will be ready to begin the most difficult, the most powerful, the most fun of all.  You will be ready to begin to fly up and know the meaning of kindness and of love."

A Quote by Richard Bach on questions, diamonds, lifetime, colors, and answers

The questions are diamonds you hold in the light.  Study a lifetime and you see different colors from the same jewel.  The same questions, asked again, bring you just the answers you need just the minute you need them.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on empowerment, manifestation, and idea

An idea is never given to you without you being given the power to make it reality. You must, nevertheless, suffer for it.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on universe, beautiful, just, perfect, the is, and limit

Imagine the universe beautiful and just and perfect. 
Then be sure of one thing:
The Is has imagined it quite a bit better than you have.
The original sin is to limit the Is. Don't.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on dream, work, power, realizing, and manifesting

You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.

A Quote by zaadzster_1

You can achieve a goal; you never really achieve your purpose, because your purpose is ongoing. It never stops.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on dragons, princesses, disguises, magic, reality, enchantment, and manifestation

We think, sometimes, there's not a dragon left.  Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests, enchanting deer and butterflies with her smile.
We think sometimes that ours is an age past frontiers, past adventures.  Destiny, it's way over the horizon; glowing shadows galloped past long ago, and gone.
What a pleasure to be wrong.  Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure... not only are they here-and-now, they're all that ever lived on earth!
Our century, they've changed clothes, of course.  Dragons wear government-costumes, today, and failure-suits and disaster-outfits.  Society's demons screech, whirl down on us should we lift our eyes from the ground, dare we turn right at corners we've been told to turn left. So crafty have appearances become that princesses and knights can be hidden from each other, can be hidden from themselves.
Yet masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we've never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish.  Intuition whispers true: We're not dust, we're magic!

A Quote by Richard David Bach on navigation, direction, lost, and change

Navigate by the same star, unwilling to change, and you find yourself not only off-course but lost.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on language, words, foreign language, ideas, spanish, and espagnol

Languages are fluffy big pillows stuffed between nations - what others say is muffled and nearly lost in them, and when we speak their grammar we get feathers in our mouth.  It's worth it.  What pleasure to phrase an idea, even in child's words, slowly, and sail it across the gulf in another language to a different-speaking human being!
