The ABC's of Life...O is for Open-Minded

"The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind." ~EB White

"A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it's not open." ~Frank Zappa

"Books open your mind, broaden your mind, and strengthen you as nothing else can." ~ William Feather

"An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for the little artistic Ephiphany." ~Nick Cave

Keep your mind open to the views of others...be curious...ask questions...listen....throw away your preconceived notions and unlock the door to new ideas & new thoughts. It is possible...you can do it.


  1. What a gorgous photo - I love the bleached colours. Once again, some amazingly inspiring quotes, particularly like the one by Nick Cave.
    Lots to think about - thank you.
    Hugs xx

  2. I really like these quotes... especially the parachute and i agree with the book quote!!
    That photo is fabulous too :)

  3. i really needed to read this post right now!

  4. Oh, so true, so true. It seems that as people get older, they tend to either become less open or more so. I know which way I want to go! Beautiful!!

  5. I'm so glad you all liked the quotes. One of my favorite things to do with my blog posts is finding just the right quotes to use:)

  6. Love the quotes from Frank and Nick - the former made me smile, the latter was oh so true :)
