Letting go

Posted by Claudia Moser on 2:03 PM in ,


“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” — Herman Hesse

“One problem with gazing too frequently into the past is that we may turn around to find the future has run out on us.” – Michael Cibenko

“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” – Havelock Ellis

“We need in love to practice only this: letting each other go. For holding on comes easily–we do not need to learn it.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” – Lao Tzu

Motto

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
