The Road Less Fettered (#13)

by Ray Reuter on July 13, 2017

The Road Less Fettered has been traveled before by many wise and wonderful people. Below are six more of my favorite quotes that are worth pondering and lead to unfettering …

Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
“I will try again tomorrow.”
— Mary Anne Radmacher

To be what we are,
and to become what we are capable of becoming,
is the only end in life.
— Baruch Spinoz

 When we cannot find contentment in ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.
— Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Every act of conscious learning
requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one’s self-esteem.
That is why young children,
before they are aware of their own self-importance,
learn so easily.
— Thomas Szasz

Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make,
both consciously and unconsciously.
If you can control the process of choosing,
you can take control of all aspects of your life.
You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.
— Robert Foster Bennett

The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves,
to express ourselves. But if we look at our lives we will see that
most of the time we do things just to please others …
The worst part is that most of us are not even aware that we are not free.
— Don Miguel Ruiz
