As a therapist, I find that clients remark that quotes are helpful for shifting out of feelings of hopelessness or feeling stuck. As a yoga teacher, students find that quotes uplift them and help to maintain levels of peace and wonder.
Some Eastern thinkers speak about attachment. What does that mean? Do we like to indulge and sink into different unconscious states? If so, why? What do great minds across history say about our habits and the power of persistence? How can we break through our stories and assumptions more so that we have humor, joy and wonder each day?
