Yes! It’s another post at the Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally.
Yes! I saw this yes-terday
and almost said “yes” to writing a post titled “No!”
Yes! I’ve already written Day 1539: The No List which includes interesting quotes about “No.” Yes! I’ll wait while you read that other post.
Yes! There are also interesting quotes about “Yes!”
Always say ‘yes’ to the present moment… Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life – and see how life starts suddenly to start working for you rather than against you. — Eckhart Tolle
When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.’ — Dalai Lama
Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn’t have the power to say yes. — Eleanor Roosevelt
A nice person is a ‘yes’ person, whereas a good person is a person who accepts their responsibility in things and moves forward and tries to constantly evolve and isn’t afraid to say no or challenge someone or be honest or truthful. — Miranda Kerr
Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best. — John C. Maxwell
A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble. — Mahatma Gandhi
The oldest, shortest words – ‘yes’ and ‘no’ – are those which require the most thought. — Pythagoras
Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the furthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness: a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say ‘no.’ But saying ‘yes’ begins things. Saying ‘yes’ is how things grow. — Stephen Colbert
Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes’, otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life. — Ian Fleming
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. — e. e. cummings
Yes! That last quote is a nice segue to other pictures from yes-terday.
Would you say “Yes!” to things that are almost funny? What do you say “Yes!” to, here and now?
Yes! I love Yes. Here they are, when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame said “Yes” to them this year:
I always say “Yes!” to gratitude. Thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — yes! — to you. Yes, you!
