rp_less-fettered-300x2461.pngThe Road Less Fettered has been traveled before by many wise and wonderful people. Below are six more of my favorite quotes that lead to unfettering. 

When you do not seek or need external approval, you are at your most powerful.  —Caroline Myss

A man knows when he has found his vocation when he stops thinking about how to live and begins to live.  —Thomas Merton

If you observe a really happy man, you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his child, growing double dahlias or looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert. He will not be searching for happiness as if it were a collar button that has rolled under the radiator, striving for it as a goal in itself. He will have become aware that he is happy in the course of living life twenty-four crowded hours of each day.  —W. Beran Wolfe

I’d rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are;
Because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. 

I’d rather be a has-been than a might-have-been. By far;
For a might-have-been has never been, but a has was once an are.
—Milton Berle

There are two ways to live your life: one is as though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is a miracle.  —Albert Einstein 

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.  —Eleanor Roosevelt
