The 10/09/13 Joy Jar

9 Oct

There is something about a walk in a cold and crisp Fall morning that jumpstarts one’s brain. Today was a day like that in Seattle. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ was a walk in the crisp cold.

“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.”
Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book

“I want to live my life in such a way that when I get out of bed in the morning, the devil says, “aw shit, he’s up!”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love-then make that day count!”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
Jarod Kintz

“I love the smell of book ink in the morning.”
Umberto Eco

“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.”
Meister Eckhart

“It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.”
H.G. Wells, The Time Machine

“Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories, Volume I

“In the morning I brush my teeth with hope, and at night before bed I brush them with defeat. Both are mint flavored, so I try not to get them mixed up.
”
Jarod Kintz,
