He had many gems for quotes, but these are some good ones. Enjoy!

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.  Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be.

Time is an illusion.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairytales.  If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairytales.

Once you accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.

Taste the Moments

The good life was never paved with ease.  Take my hand so you can see though.

 Laughter, at the essence of the soul.  I’ve been pleased to find such relief.  For it is all so funny, how we strive so hard and struggle so much to understand.  To know the secrets.  To know another person’s essence, and in the end, perceptions change, and we are silly, we are strange. I know of fate, but not of it’s details, and tomorrow’s not one for me to predict.  I’d rather live it.  Taste it, taste the moments, than waste them.

So must I get logical about all sorts of subjects, but never caught up in confusion of direction, because there is clarity right in front of my eyes.  I know my unique love, and would be better off just focusing on that.
