never knowing

"Birds learn to fly, never knowing where flight will take them."
- The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo

Is there some desire you have hesitated to give life to? If you're willing to leap... you may be surprised to find your wings are already there to help you soar. Without taking risks, you'll never know. Pin It

  1. Beautifully put, Maya. I'm a big fan of quotes about risk-taking in particular. I like the reassurance they provide on any given day when my overanalyzing tendancies try to get me to play safe! :)

  9. I was inspired by a photo of yours for a postcard I drew for a DIY postcard swap (http://embracetiger.blogspot.com/2010/02/finished.html). This one is even better, so is the quote. It's something I am needing very much right now, I think I am going to draw another postcard just for me. Thank you for you oh so inspiring blog!
