"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
Listen to my thoughts about Albert Einstein's (William Jame's, and Leo Buscaglia's), inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about my favourite train journey - Huddersfield to Marsden, in West Yorkshire!
(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
As I say in the video...
Actually, in this video I DON'T talk about the free inspirational quotation by Albert Einstein, at all. Instead, I let the journey I'm on do the talking - my favourite train journey from Huddersfield to Marsden via Slaithwaite, in West Yorkshire (England), that is.
By the way, the other inspirational quotes in the video above are these...
"Don't spend your precious time asking 'Why isn't the world a better place?' It will only be time wasted. The question to ask is 'How can I make it better?' To that there is an answer." -- Leo F. Buscaglia
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." -- William James
... also pretty powerful inspirational quotes, no?
And I'm not going to say much about Albert Einstein's inspirational quote now, either. The inspirational quote, pretty much explains itself really, don't you think?
Basically, life is an amazing miracle filled with daily miracles. Our life, our 'world', is our responsibility and ours alone. And so it follows that we CAN make a difference to this world, to our world!
That's not to say that life is sweet all the time, of course it isn't.
Fact is, life... is life... is life...
It comes with ups, downs, flowing moments and stuck moments. Why it even comes with roundabouts, where all you seem to be doing is going round and round and round (until you start to feel sick!)
Still, life IS a miracle all the same.
Yes, life is a miracle, and it's your (and my responsibility) to enjoy your (and my) life to the fullest AND to create it in our own image.
Well, that's what I reckon ol' Albert E, Leo and Willy J were on about 'back in the day'. But, of course, I could have it completely wrong.
Which is were YOU come in...
Yes, as ever, I'd love to hear your wisdom regarding any and all of these inspirational quotes - thank you! :-)
