Christmas quote for you. :)

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Here's a quote I read this morning that I like. She's talking about the artist's path, but I think it applies to alot of things.

"I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow."

Julia Cameron

1. To assume makes an ASS out of U and ME. (problem ~ Aussies interpret 'ass' as a donkey. Americans don't.)

I think this one is so apt for the creative psyche:
One must have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star. (Nietzsche.)

Okay, here's a good one for the New Year for us artist types:

My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny
