A Quote by Malcolm S. Forbes on daydreams, adventure, wanting, and live

"Daydreams are doable. The turn-on is not in scale, spectacle, or cost. It's  in the doing. Anything you haven't done is an adventure. Wanting to is the principal requirement. If you can do and want to, don't not.
In short, while alive, live."

Malcolm Forbes (1919 - 1990)

A Quote by Abraham-Hicks on appreciation, let in, wanting, satisfaction, and more

You want appreciation. Even though you like what's happening now doesn't mean that you still don't want appreciation or greater stimulation. It just means you're not using something in your now as your excuse to not let in all those things that you've been wanting. The perfect creative stance is satisfaction where I am, and eagerness for more.

Abraham Hicks

A Quote by Elizabeth Berg on wanting, empty center, light, waiting, happiness, and joy

The heart of myself has always been something just wanting so bad.  I have had an empty center, black as a basement, but also knowing about light and waiting.  Young as I am, I know now that everything is about to come.  Jimmy will be the place for me to learn the real happiness.  He will be my Joy School.  My joy.  Mine.
