The Road Less Fettered (#16)

by Ray Reuter on February 28, 2019

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 …

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. —Viktor E. Frankl

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. —Melody Beattie

Yesterday is ashes.
Tomorrow is green wood.
Only today does the fire burn brightly.
Inuit Proverb

Never risk what you have and need for what you don’t have and don’t need.
—Warren Buffett

Live out of your imagination, not your history.
—Stephen Covey

All men and women are born, live, suffer and die;
what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams,
whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things,
and what we do to make them come about.
We do not choose to be born.
We do not choose our parents.
We do not choose our historical epoch,
the country of our birth,
or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.
We do not, most of us, choose to die;
nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death.
But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.
—Joseph Epstein
