Courage and Fantastic Breaks

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
" It isn't for the
 moment you are struck
 that you need courage, 
but for the long 
uphill climb 
back to sanity 
and faith and 
security. "
                          Anne Morrow Lindbergh

" You achieve little
 by getting angry, 
whereas if you show 
patience & understanding, 
you will progress far. "

 “The fantastic breaks 
the crust of appearance. . . 
something grabs us 
by the shoulders to
 throw us outside ourselves.
 I have always known that 
the big surprises await us. . .” 
                        Julio Cortázar

" If you are not willing
 to risk the unusual,
 you will have to settle
 for the ordinary. "

Fantastic red clouds in the first photo! And I also especially like the pairing of the photo and quote in the last.

What a stunning sky image

The critters today are super-cool. I love the griffin (???) or lion with jewels on its back. The quotes are excellent, as well.

Give me the unusual, yep, that'll do. Aloha.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

That's one cute critter. Anne Lindbergh Morrow's quote reminds me of the song "Starting All Over Again" by Iz. The song -- and now the quote -- always gives me inspiration to keep on going. :-)
