Find those places inside that jump for joy...


You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on.

~Ray Bradbury

It's possible to forget how alive we really are.
We can become dry and tired, just existing, instead of really living.
We need to remind ourselves of the juice of life, and make that a habit.
Find those places inside that jump for joy,
and do things.


Look, I really don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that
if you're alive, you got to flap your arms and legs,
you got to jump around a lot
you got to make a lot of noise, because
life is the very opposite of death.
And therefore, as I see it, if you're quiet, you're not living.
You've got to be noisy, or at least your thoughts should be noisy and colorful and lively.

~ Mel Brooks

Jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty,
fall flat on your face, and then reach for the stars.

~Ben Stein

Oh wait - that's probably not an inspirational quote.
