Day 1924: Impossible

Some people feel it’s impossible to blog daily for over five years.  I believe it would have been impossible for me to face the world  as effectively as I have since January 1, 2013 without this blog.

Yesterday, I saw something impossible at a local restaurant.

Because it was possible for me to do so, I took that impossible flag with me. I guess I like taking on the impossible.

Day 1853: Free

Welcome to another free blog post here at The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally!

Over the years, I’ve been working on becoming free to express myself and to take action, free from fear.

Here are some free quotes about “Free.”

Smile, it’s free therapy. — Douglas Horton

To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you. — Lewis B. Smedes

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the land of the brave. — Elmer Davis

Now I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is. I have seen hundreds of escaped slaves, but I never saw one who was willing to go back and be a slave. — Harriet Tubman

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. — Albert Camus

Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains. — Jean-Jacques Rousseau

For to be free is not merely to cast off chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. — Nelson Mandela

I hope for nothing. I fear nothing.  I am free.  — Nikos Kazantzakis

Nobody’s free until everybody’s free. — Fannie Lou Hamer

The highest a human being can attain is learning for understanding, because to understand is to be free. — Baruch Spinoza

I would rather belong to a poor nation that was free than to a rich nation that had ceased to be in love with liberty. — Woodrow Wilson

Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power and, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes.  You are free. — Jim Morrison

The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable. — James A. Garfield

Those who are free from resentful thoughts surely are free. — Buddha

I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally. — W.C. Fields

Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. — Albert Einstein

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. — Michelangelo

Fighting for one’s freedom, struggling towards being free is like struggling to be a poet or a good Christian or a good Jew or a good Muslim or a good Zen Buddhist. You work all day long and achieve some kind of level of success by nightfall, go to sleep and wake up the next morning with the job still to be done. So you start all over again. — Maya Angelou

Great artists make the roads; good teachers and good companions can point them out. But there ain’t no free rides, baby. — Ursula K. Le Guin

“There ain’t no free rides, baby,” said the late, great author Ursula K. Le Guin, who died earlier this week.

Please feel free to share your favorite “free” quotes, below.

I am free to take photos and free to post  them here.IMG_6599

I am also free to try out for The Voice again today and free not to care about the looks I see on faces while I’m singing.

I am free to choose “Mad World” for my audition song.

Here and now, thanks are also free for all who speak out about freedom and — of course! — for YOU.
