Even More Kinkade Quotes


It is a good thing to “live in the light”.

Schedules and routines were made to serve us, not to rule us.

Even if events don’t turn  out the way we want, we still have options and new possibilities.

Pay attention to your passions, your purposes, and your pursuits.

Small gestures, small events, small experiences often mean the most.

With every creative act, you light a fresh candle for a darkened world.

You can choose to trust in the richness and beauty of life.

The hard work of creativity includes the work of getting good enough to do what you really want to do.

It takes courage to push ourselves off center, to think in nonstandard ways.

If you want beauty in your life, you simply have to go outdoors from time to time.

More Thomas Kinkade Quotes


Thomas Kinkade was known as the Painter of Light because of the beautiful hints of light in all of his paintings. Here are a few more of his quotes.

Opening our eyes to beauty really means opening our hearts and imaginations.

Beauty enters your heart to all the senses. 

Keep your eyes open for the signs of spiritual reality hiding behind a familiar disguise.

A Toast to Antryump


For those who may be unfamiliar, Antryump is a blogger who painstakingly posts of exemplary writers of bygone days–wonderful writers whose works will never be forgotten. And so I, whose works will be forgotten by most, would like to pay Antryump this tribute.

I toast you Antryump

because you triumph

over everyday mundane

by expressing thoughts

and quotes and words

of men of long-held fame:

Kahlil, Confucius, Socrates,

Emerson and Rumi:

men who from centuries past

still are speaking to me.

Mandella, Tolstoy, even Steve,

men of rare content

are brought to life

because of you

and precious hours spent.

It is with pleasure that I read

your each and every post

and dwell on words

that from the past,

speak to me the most.

So, thank you Antryump,

for being you,

and bringing light to bear

on these great artists, who through you,

make us more aware.

What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep you dreamed? And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then? (Samuel Taylor Coleridge – 1772-1834)
