Wonderful quotes, Anneliese - all three of them!

RE: Quote 10/29/13

There's some truth in number 1 for sure.

RE: Quote 10/29/13

Great quotes. I especially like the #1. So true.
Number 3, also rings a bell, but i won't tell who it reminds me of. LOL.

Quote #1 resonates with me, too. I've posted this quote, before, but even if I'm repeating myself, it's valid, and simply another way of stating #1. My yoga teacher told it's an ancient Yogic truth:

"One sees the world as it is, but the world is as one sees it."
