-- THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES --
I don't know a lot about Henry David Thoreau (yet). I do know he was a famous writer and philosopher. But I do know that I love some of his ideas and quotations. This is probably my favorite quotation of his that I've discovered so far.
Obviously he was a man who thought "out-of-the-box". Someone once said, "Don't just think outside-of-the-box. Think as if there is no box." He did not set any limits or restrictions to what he could think or accomplish. I have caught myself being complacent in a rut, one of my own making, and being self-satisfied with the "status quo". I think we have set limits on ourselves that God does not mean for us to establish.
We are meant to have a freedom to grow and expand our horizons, and it is an unlimited life, if we choose to let ourselves accept it. John 10:10-- Jesus said -- "I have come that they may have Life, and have it more abundantly."
As we've heard it said, "The Sky's the Limit!" Let's live life to the full -- let's max it out -- and not allow ourselves or others to build walls and gates of complacency and mediocrity around us that limit us from achieving our potentials and enjoying total freedom!
