A Quote by Richard David Bach on free, freedom, jonathan, livingston, seagull, and live

The next night from the Flock came Kirk Maynard Gull, wobbling across the sand, ragging his leftwing, to collapse at Jonathan's feet.

"Help me," he said very quietly, speaking in the way that the dying speak. "I want to fly more than anything else in the world..."

"Come along then." said Jonathan. "Climb with me away from the ground, and we'll begin."

"You don't understand My wing. I can't move my wing."

"Maynard Gull, you have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way. It is the Law of the Great Gull, the Law that Is."

"Are you saying I can fly?"

"I say you are free."

A Quote by Richard David Bach on suicide, suicidal, risk, life, chances, despair, and creativity

Anyone desperate enough for suicide... should be desperate enough to go to creative extremes to solve problems: elope at midnight, stow away on the boat to New Zealand and start over, do what they always wanted to do but were afraid to try.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on selfishness, giving, and generosity

Anybody who's ever mattered, anybody who's ever been happy, anybody who's ever given any gift into the world has been a divinely selfish soul, living for his own best interest. No exceptions.

There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on connection, true family, and family

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life.  Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.
