Mindfulness Quotes

"Don't think about how you're going to stay mindful all day long, because you won't be able to. It will be short moments, many times." - Sharon Salzberg

"Instructions for Living a Life: Pay attention, be astonished, tell about it" -  Mary Oliver

To see the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour

- Thich Nhat Hanh

“If you clean the floor with love, you have given the world an invisible painting.” – Osho

 “To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.” – William Blake

 “You have a treasure within you that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.” – Eckhart Tolle

 “Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future; live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
