Gratitude of Clarity

“You can do anything, but not everything.”

-(Linked to David Allen’s musings).

“A limited mind cannot think freely. Art lives where absolute freedom is, because where it is not, there can be no creativity.”- @gregnelsonmma

“Civilizations come and go; they conquer the earth and crumble to dust; but faith survives every desolation.” – Will Durant

“We become what we love and make the world according to our loves. We should act from a place not of fear and loathing but of affection and confidence of God and His will.” – Rod Dreher

“I’ve stopped worrying about conditions that I can’t control or change. I just do what I came to do, as well as I can. That’s all you can do as a writer. When you write about your life, stop worrying about editors and publishers and agents and about all the readers you hope to reach. It’s a privilege to write for one other person. Do it with gratitude and with pleasure.” – William Zinsser

“I saw with immense clarity that we had always been harried by time. All our dreams back there in Glenmerle had come true: the schooner Grey Goose under the wind, the far islands of Hawaii in the dark-blue rolling Pacific, the spires of Oxford. But all the fulfillments were somehow, it seemed to me, incomplete, temporary, hurried. We wished to know, to savour, to sink in–into the heart of the experience. To possess it wholly. But there was never enough time; something still eluded us.”- Sheldon Van Auken

  1. I love the choice of the word, “Clarity”! I feel God’s presence when I meditate on it. What a wonderful word!
