Good Quotes from Howard Thurman

Me thinks I need some Howard Thurman reading… these are some monster good quotes:

  • Community cannot for long feed on itself; it can only flourish with the coming of others from beyond, their unknown and undiscovered brothers.”
  • “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that. Because what the world needs is people that have come alive.”
  • “There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days at the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.”
  • “Commitment means that it is possible for a man to yield the nerve centre of his consent to a purpose or cause, a movement or an ideal, which may be more important to him than whether he lives or dies.”
  • “A dream is the bearer of a new possibility, the enlarged horizon, the great hope.”
