  • “Overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now.”
  • “Instead of our drab slogging forth and back to the fishing boats, there’s reason to live!
  • We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can learn to be free! we can learn to fly!”
  • “To begin with, you’ve got to understand that a seagull is an unlimited idea of freedom, an image of the Great Gull, and your whole body, from wingtip to wingtip, is nothing more than your thought itself.”
  • “To begin with, you’ve got to understand that a seagull is an unlimited idea of freedom, an image of the Great Gull, and your whole body, from wingtip to wingtip, is nothing more than your thought itself.”
  • “His one sorrow was not solitude, it was that other gulls refused to believe the glory of flight that awaited them; they refused to open their eyes and see.”
  • “Can miles truly separate you from friends… If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there?”
  • “Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.”
  • “One challenge of our adventure on earth is to rise above dead systems…wars, nations, destructions…to refuse to be a part of them, and express the highest selves we know how to be.”
    Richard Bach, One
  • “Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.”
  • “Argue for your limitations and, sure enough, they’re yours.”

2617

  • “Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love? That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us, as the painting of the sunrise is up to the artist. In our world humanity has strayed from that love. It lives hatred and power struggles and manipulations of the earth itself for its own narrow reasons. Continue and no one will see the sunrise. The sunrise will always exist, of course, but people on earth will know nothing of it and finally even stories of its beauty will fade from our knowing.”
    Richard Bach, One
  • “Listen to what you know instead of what you fear.”
  • “A tiny change today brings a dramatically different tomorrow.”
    Richard Bach, One
