Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance – it is the illusion of knowledge.
Daniel J. Boorstin
The elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the stairs… one step at a time.
No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.
Seek wisdom, not knowledge. Knowledge is of the past, Wisdom is of the future.
I am a fan of Leonard Cohen and there is a part in the Anthem lyrics that means a lot:
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
In other words, we need to be open to let the light in – and to let our own light out.

Perhaps another way of expressing this can also be found in the words of another poet – Kahlil Gibran:
“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.”

Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
It is only by changing our thoughts that we can start to improve our lives.

My comment: We need to change how we feel about things too.
Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.
