"Magic is the art of transformation, it reminds us that anything is possible, and that's an important message in today's world."

The wisdom of the Cheeky Girls is something that has made me the person I am. That and the cockney philisophies of Chas 'n' Dave. Their "everyman" appraoch owes a lot to the Earth element.

Nice one, Julia, and it totally applies since we as performers create, fail, recreate, and constantly progress ... which happens to be "the law" for every great entertainer.

Wow! Great quotes!

I will add anything from Paramahansa Yogananda!
“The happiness of one's own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one's own happiness, the happiness of others.”

Dale Carnegie and Joseph Campbell could also fit the 'anything from' for quotation purposes!

Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
--G.K Chesterton

Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.

I like this one:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore.
Dream.
Discover.

Mark Twain

That's one of main faults I know what I need to do but I don't do it.

What was it that Alice said "I give excellent advise but I very rarely listen"

I liked the Sherlock Homes quote about the printing press as that is something I need to do.

A wise old owl lived in an oak.

The more he heard, the less he spoke,
The less he spoke, the more he heard,

And the owl is of course a very wise bird.
