The 03/14/13 Joy Jar

13 Apr

One of moi’s favorite television programs is ‘The Voice’ which is a reality show where contestants compete using only their voice before four celebrity judges who have their back to the contestants. The goal is to get at least one judge to turn around. Since the judges do not know what the contestant looks like, all they have upon which to make a judgment is the voice of the contestant. Voice is not only the vocal sound, but perspective, and the outlook of the contestant and that comes through in the performance. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is moi’s voice.

If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
Vincent Van Gogh

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Steve Jobs

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.
Maya Angelou

I learned patience, perseverance, and dedication. Now I really know myself, and I know my voice. It’s a voice of pain and victory.
Anthony Hamilton

People have to talk about something just to keep their voice boxes in working order so they’ll have good voice boxes in case there’s ever anything really meaningful to say.
Kurt Vonnegut

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice.
William Shakespeare

When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.
Pope John Paul II

The human voice can never reach the distance that is covered by the still small voice of conscience.
Mahatma Gandhi
