“quote me” challenge

1. Only when sleeping do we make no MISTAKES. Mistakes are the privilege of the active person, who can start over and put things right.

2. Life is huge, more expansive than we can feel or imagine. Even in my deepest meditation or moments of profound awareness, I can only connect to a fraction of all that is alive.

3. I think the word create is synomous with thrive. Alive is just a state of being, thrive is an intentional choice. I will think beyond myself, I will conceive something new. I will not fear. I will be me. I will thrive.

4. I go forth alone, and stand as ten thousand. I think of all who’ve come before me and had to endure trials that would level most of us in our urban comfort zones, and I realize I’m not the first person to face big challenges. This has been done before. I can do it again, maybe even better.

So, have you ever read a quote and thought "I could have said that, that’s how I feel"
We’re going to play a little game, see how you do and then take my "I said that" challenge.

Match the above quotes to the person who spoke them.
A. Oprah
B. Stacy Julian
C. Ingvar Kamprad [founder of IKEA]
D. Maya Angelou

Post your answer as a comment (no googling allowed!) and let’s see if somone can get all four quotes correctly attributed. The goal of course is NOT to compare myself to any of these amazing people, but rather to have a little FUN and lead us to part two of the "quote me" challenge, which involves having the confidence to say something you believe and share it with the world (more on that part coming soon)

p.s. there are prizes involved!!

p.p.s I’ve reposted most of the comments from before. If I missed you, I am terribly sorry — please post your answers again!!

    Welcome back; I missed you. Here’s my quote; it affected me in a big way:
    In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.

    A. Oprah – 2
    B. Stacy Julian- 3
    C. Ingvar Kamprad -1
    D. Maya Angelou -4
    I’m pretty confident about the Oprah and Maya Angelou quotes, but not so sure about YOUR quote (could be 1 or 3), but I’m going with 3 since it simply “sounds” like you – such a positive attitude!
    Thanks for sharing these! They’re all going into my quote file.

  105. Jean Harper says:

    I want to tell you how much I admire you and your accomplishments. We all slip up every once in a while and that is human nature. As the saying goes “to error is human to forgive is Divine”. It would be so sad to think that there are those people who feel that they never slip up and make a mistake.. Keep your chin up and forge ahead.. You have asked for forgiveness in so many venues and I think we should all move on and create our own history, and let you get back to helping us do that. Thanks for your creativity and support of the industry.
    Jean Harper

    1. Ingvar Kamprad
    2. Oprah
    3. Stacy J.
    4. Maya Angelou

  112. Not sure who said those but I thought I’d share my own favorite quote of the week with you:
    Overheard from my 5 year old new kindergartener playing school with her 2 year old sister, “Now class, LISTEN! Teachers know everything. Well, not everything like GOD but almost everything.” LOVE IT!! Almost as good as the one earlier this week when I asked her what she was learning “The most importantest rule ever is NO ESCAPING while the teacher is not looking.” I’m not sure I want to know how that became a rule!! :) Glad you made it through September – here’s to thriving instead of merely surviving!

  114. Hi Stacy!

    Have a wonderful October!

    Thanks for the neat quotes. I save quotes in a 3×5 index card box, filed according to “theme”, then when I need a great quote for a scrap page, I can easily find one. Plus it’s just inspiring to go and read the quotes.

    3-B Stacy
    4-D Maya

    D. Maya Angelou – 4. I go forth alone,
