Inspired: July 2014

Here are the passages and quotes that caught my eye:

In truth, once you switch your mind on to the positives, once you sift out the detritus that sits on the surface all day polluting your thoughts with grim despair, you find that you can’t stop accentuating the things you like.

Melinda Hildebrant via The Limping Chicken


What is not good for the swarm is not good for the bee.

Marcus Aurelius


I shall not die of a cold, I shall die of having lived.

Willa Cather


I have become increasingly convinced that our propensity to make plans is borne from a desire for control that doesn’t exist.
