  1. Oooh yeah…Nice one!Trusting the nature of change and not staying in our little comforts zones.
    So even thought the way these quotes come up is (you know how) they still often synch with my places and processes. Just shows you hey – we can read so much into things sometimes – we can also read so much into whatever we want to read into! 😉

  2. That’s a truly inspirational quote. However as Columbus wasn’t the first person to discover America (Erik the Red, the Chinese, the Japanese and of course the Native Americans beat him to it) and he exploited the Americans, I don’t think his quotes should be included. Unless you’re including quotes from other bad people too, then I don’t see why not.

    1. Thanks, and truely LOL … from a Hindu perspective, anyone who eats cows is a “bad person”, cows are sacred to Hindus. Adolf Hitler who was vegetarian would win points for this in Hindu eyes, presumably, but I think most Hindus would agree Adolf was a “bad person”, in fact probably most would agree he was a “bad person” … so wondering what “process” you’d propose I use to filter out “bad people” so that I could enforce a non-inclusion of bad people’s quotes rule ? And would this be an entirely subjective process that would only suit you personally, or would it be universal so that all people would universally recognise that they are quotes from “good people” ? I’m intrigued to say the least, although a little sceptical that it’s even possible to find such a list of devine angels who walked the earth doing only virtuous acts … Mother Teresa perhaps (not sure if she ate cows), but that’s a fairly short list of quotes, and not everything she said was particularly inspiring, interesting or motivating, or indeed Charismatic …

      Perhaps you’d suggest that I do my blog just for you personally, and forget about the other 30000+ subscribers who may (or may not) think that Christopher Columbus did a good thing in “finding” the Americas, the place they now call “home” ?
