Jeff Bridges Quotes

‘When there is no desire to satisfy yourself, there is no aggression or speed… Because there is no rush to achieve, you can afford to relax. Because you can afford to relax, you can afford to keep company with yourself, you can afford to make love with yourself, to be friends with yourself.
CHOGYAM TRUNGPA
CUTTING THROUGH SPIRITUAL MATERIALISM

‘All paths are the same: they lead nowhere… They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long, long paths but I am not anywhere. My benefactor’s question has meaning now. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.’
CARLOS CASTANEDA
THE TEACHINGS OF DON JUAN

‘After ecstacy, the laundry.’
ZEN SAYING

‘Whenever you get there, there’s no there there.’
GERTRUDE STEIN

‘When men dream, each has his own world.
When they are awake, they have a common world.’

‘Since everything is but an apparition
Perfect in being what it is,
Having nothing to do with good or bad, acceptance or rejection,
One may well burst out in laughter.’
LONGCHENPA

‘He who mounts a wild elephant goes where the wild elephant goes.’
RANDOLPH BORNE

‘I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as making a life. I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’
MAYA ANGELOU

‘Men argue, nature acts.’
FRANCOIS VOLTAIRE

‘How you measure the performance of your managers directly affects the way they act.’

CHINESE PROVERB

‘The best way to destroy your enemy is to make him your friend.’
ABRAHAM LINCOLN

‘You’re only young once, but you can be immature forever.’
GERMAINE GREER

‘If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?’
ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN

It’s a good thing I had a bag of marijuana . If I had a bag of spinach, I’d be dead by now.

– We cannot escape fear. We can only transform it into a companion that accompanies us on all our exciting adventures … Take a risk a day – one small or bold stroke that will make you feel great once you have done it.

– How often – even before we began – have we declared a task “impossible”? And how often have we construed a picture of ourselves as being inadequate? … A great deal depends upon the thought patterns we choose and on the persistence with which we affirm them.
PIERO FERRUCCI

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
