Radiance is still there, as before,
Even when walking with others, do not hesitate to change direction if necessary to follow your inner truth.
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
The wisest men follow their own direction.
In order to seek one’s own direction, one must simplify the mechanics of ordinary, everyday life.
I follow nature as the surest guide, and resign myself, with implicit obedience, to her sacred ordinances.
If one does not know to which port he is sailing, no wind is favorable.
The mind flows along the course of wisdom or of ignorance, in whatever direction you make it flow.
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, this is the way; walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
A wise man guides his own course of action;
Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in a river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one; on that side all obstruction is taken away, and he sweeps serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea.
The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving.
Happiness and misery depend not on how high up or low down you are but on the direction in which you are tending.
It is the direction and not the magnitude which is to be taken into consideration.
Thought needs direction to be effective, and … will is the directing power. Thought is the force. Will gives direction. Thought scattered gives the weak, the uncertain, the vacillating, the aspiring, but the never-doing, the I-would-like-to, but the get-nowhere, the attain-to-nothing man or woman. Thought steadily directed by the will gives the strong, the firm, the never-yielding, the never-know-defeat man or woman … who uses the very difficulties and hindrances that would dishearten the ordinary person as stones with which he paves a way over which he triumphantly walks.
He who chooses the beginning of a road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determine the end.
Let everyone follow his inclinations – provided he go upward.
The desire to change the direction of your life is one of the surest signs of grace … For a while you may not know the direction in which to go. But you will know without doubt that the direction you have been going in is wrong.
We must travel in the direction of our fear.
A sailor without a destination cannot hope for a favorable wind.
A mountain can never be climbed looking down. The direction should always be onward and upward, and with faith, focus, discipline, dedication and hard work, our dreams will be realized.
No man can know where he is going unless he knows exactly where he has been and exactly how he arrived at his present place … Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the roads which lie ahead, and those over which we have travelled, and if the future road looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and, carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction.
The line of progress is never straight. For a period of movement may follow a straight line and then it encounters obstacles and the path bends.
We find our individual freedom by choosing not a destination but a direction. You do not choose the transformative journey because you know where it will take you but because it is the only journey that makes sense.
Look inside to find out where you’re going, and it’s better to do it before you get out of high school.
The smallest step in a positive direction is considerably better than sliding helplessly backwards. And you can take that step forward right now.
If there ever comes a time when you feel like you have to go someplace to find a better you and you’re going any farther than the mirror, don’t take another step. As long as you are looking toward anything but yourself, you’ll always be headed in the wrong direction.
We have been used to thinking linearly, but … it’s not in one line any more but many lines, in different directions, and those directions each have many more directions. It has nothing to do with space. If you hold your fist tightly, that little space contains all the dimensions.
