Henry Toreau on the art of living:
“It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look. To affect the quality of the day – that is the highest of arts.”
Mother Teresa, St. Francis of Assisi, Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman – they each affected the “quality of the day” for millions of people. They didn’t expect rewards or commendations, and most had no idea the impact they would make or the legacy they would leave behind. They simply wanted to make the world a better place for others to live in.
We all have the potential inside of us to be amongst the greatest artists in the world. Those who practice the highest of the arts – the art of life itself.
