“Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
To a disciple who complained of his limitations the Master said, "You are limited indeed. But have you noticed you can do things today that you would have thought impossible fifteen years ago? What changed"?
"My talents changed".
"No. You changed".
"Isn't that the same thing"?
"No. You are what you think you are. When your thinking changed, you changed".
~ Anthony de Mello
“Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.” — Chinese Proverb
“A person will sometimes devote all his life to the development of one part of his body - the wishbone.” ~ Robert Frost
“There are two kinds of people. One kind, you can just tell by looking at them at what point they congealed into their final selves. It might be a very nice self, but you know you can expect no more surprises from it. Whereas, the other kind keep moving, changing... They are fluid. They keep moving forward and making new trysts with life, and the motion of it keeps them young. In my opinion, they are the only people who are still alive. You must be constantly on your guard against congealing.”
― Gail Godwin
