A quote for Sunday.

25 Aug


Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.                                                                                                                                              John F. Kennedy.

    Very true and very wise words, indeed, from a very wise human being.

    To conform is to also give up on your own unique and precious individuality.

    Follow your own heart…follow your own path…your own journey…your own intuition, and in the words of Joseph Campbell, follow your bliss.

      Well said June! Follow your heart and find your bliss.

    How very true June and Bridget, if more people followed their own path there would be less unhappiness in this world.
    Where was the photo taken Bridget? We made it to the coast today, few cobwebs blown away.

      Agree with you wholeheartedly, Anne.

      Glad you got the opportunity to get to the coast. I always feel better – body, mind and spirit – whenever I’m near the ocean. A beautiful photo, yes, I agree.

        It was taken on a lovely little stony beach between Beltra and Easkey yesterday. Our visitors loved it…not another soul about. Hard to walk on those big stones but so worth it.

    Just where we were today, collected seaweed and some mussels, mussels for lunch tomorrow.

    I’m always amazed at the wise things JFK came out with! I like that one : )

    I perfectly agree, and go against rules, culture and conformity.

    Now that is food for thought, Bridget! Love it! And love the picture of another corner of your beautiful world. P. x
