Famous Quote Friday (David Starr Jordan)



“The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.”

– David Starr Jordan


David was an educator, peace activist and founding president of Stanford University. This quote though short leaves so much room for personalized inspiration. When you know where your going in life many things seem to stay out of your way and obstacles you just conquer along the way. That is more simply put, to be determination for your goal. But in order for the world to step aside you need to have those goals you need to know where your life is headed. Sure maybe right this second you don’t know where you are going but if you have a goal in mind of where you are going, everyday you will get closer, and you are essentially in the know of where you are headed! You will encounter challenges, failure and success but the closer you are, the more determined you are, the more passionate you are more the world will not seem to stand in your way.


Do you know where your life is headed? What are you doing with the rest of your life, what stands in your way? The only thing that stands in your way is doubt. So know where you are going and the world will be ready to help you get there.


Have a great weekend everyone.

A creative mind takes no label. A positive mind sees past that which is easy to find. Find the things you love in life and share them with others. I am an artist. I am a positive thinker. I am on a quest to love everything life gives to me. On the outside I am no different then anyone else but on the inside I feel I have a lot of different things to share. My goal is to find those willing to listen. Those willing to share there thoughts in return. I have a long list of goals in my life, some I have met and all the rest I am getting closer to every day. I want to write a book, I want to be a motivational speaker, I want to own an art gallery, just to name a few.
