journeys

A Quote by Denis Waitley on children, fantasy, friendship, happiness, inflation, journeys, laws, life, people, problems, struggle, and unhappiness

There is an island fantasy A "Someday I'll," we'll never see When recession stops, inflation ceases Our mortgage is paid, our pay increases That Someday I'll where problems end Where every piece of mail is from a friend Where the children are sweet and already grown . . . . Most unhappy people . . . put happiness on "law away" And struggle through a blue today . . . . Life's most important revelation Is that the journey means more than the destination . . .

A Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin on change, journeys, life, losing, metaphor, secrets, and travel

Not so many years ago there was no simpler or more intelligible notion than that of going on a journey. Travel - movement through space - provided the universal metaphor for change. One of the subtle confusions - perhaps one of the secret terrors - of modern life is that we have lost this refuge. No longer do we move through space as we once did.

Daniel J. Boorstin (1914 -)

If all difficulties were known at the outset of a long journey, most of us would never start out at all.

A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on age, foolishness, and journeys

Avarice, in old age, is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey's end?

A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on adversity, age, certainty, company, embarrassment, home, journeys, joy, life, prosperity, study, and youth

Other relaxations are peculiar to certain times, places and stages of life, but the study of letters is the nourishment of our youth, and the joy of our old age. They throw an additional splendor on prosperity, and are the resource and consolation of adversity; they delight at home, and are no embarrassment abroad; in short, they are company to us at night, our fellow travelers on a journey, and attendants in our rural recesses.

A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero on body, divinity, earth, eternity, god, journeys, men, rules, and understanding

. . . for until that God who rules all the region of the sky . . . has freed you from the fetters of your body, you cannot gain admission here. Men were created with the understanding that they were to look after that sphere called Earth, which you see in the middle of the temple. Minds have been given to them out of the eternal fires you call fixed stars and planets, those spherical solids which, quickened with divine minds, journey through their circuits and orbits with amazing speed. . . .

Cicero (106 - 43 BC)

A Quote by Christopher McDowell on beauty, exploring, garden, journeys, peace, practicality, soul, and spirituality

Beyond its practical aspects, gardening - be it of the soil or soul - can lead us on a philosophical and spiritual exploration that is nothing less than a journey into the depths of our own sacredness and the sacredness of all beings. After all, there must be something more mystical beyond the garden gate, something that satisfies the soul's attraction to beauty, peace, solace, and celebration.
