Quotes to Ponder

I'm sharing some quotes that struck a chord with me this week...How do they resonate with you?

"There is no such thing as a wrong note," said jazz pianist Art Tatum. "It all depends on how you resolve it." Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis had a similar philosophy. "It's not the note you play that's the wrong note," he said. "It's the note you play afterwards that makes it right or wrong."

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity said, "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.  And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

"The meaning of life is not a fact to be discovered, but a choice that you make about the way you live." --Hilda Berstein, South African activist

"Conversation is the vehicle for change. We test our ideas. We hear our own voice in concert with another." --Terry Tempest Williams

"Champions keep playing until they get it right." --Billie Jean King
