Inspiration for the New Millenium

Hooray!  We’ve arrived at the dawning of the new Mayan Millenium .  The end of this Long Count cycle also marks the beginning of a new calendrical cycle.  Sandra Noble, executive director of the Mesoamerican research organization Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc. (FAMSI), notes that “for the ancient Maya, it was a huge celebration to make it to the end of a whole cycle”.  A time for celebration?  Sounds good to me!

So as we approach the end of our own 1-year calendrical cycle, here are a few inspirational quotes:

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”         George Eliot

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”               Andy Warhol

“Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great.”        Orison Swett Marden

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”             Wayne Gretzky

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”       Albert Einstein

“Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.”       Leo Tolstoy

“Celebration is a kind of food we all need in our lives, and each individual brings a special recipe or offering, so that together we will make a great feast.  Celebration is a human need that we must not, and can not, deny.  It is richer and fuller when many work and then celebrate together.”                                                       Corita Kent and Jan Steward
