More Wisdom for Life’s Transitions

  1. The world fears a new experience more than it fears anything.  Because a new experience displaces so many old experiences…The world doesn’t fear a new idea.  It can pigeon-hole any idea.  But it can’t pigeon-hole a real new experience. D.H. Lawrence
  2. Every path to a new understanding begins in confusion. Mason Cooley
  3. The middle of every successful project looks like a disaster. Rosabeth Moss Cantor
  4. When things reach maturity, they decay of themselves. Lao Tzu
  5. Life does not accommodate you, it shatters you…Every seed destroys its container or else there would be no fruition. Florida Scott-Maxwell
  6. To understand things we must have been once in them and then have come out of them; so that first there must be captivity and then deliverance, illusion followed by disillusion, enthusiasm by disappointment. He who is still under the spell and he who has never felt the spell are equally incompetent. Henri Frédéric Amiel
  7. I began to have an idea of my life, not as the slow shaping of achievement to fit my preconceived purposes, but as the gradual discovery and growth of a purpose which I did not know. Johanna Field
  8. There are no signposts in the sea. Vita Sackville-West
  9. It’s a paradox:  To achieve continuity, we have to be willing to change. Change is, in fact, the only way to protect whatever exists. William Bridges
  10. He who lacks time to mourn, lacks time to mend. William Shakespeare
