Follow your Bliss..

Sorrow11 tagged me for a favourite quote. I've already blogged my fave. Shakespeare line : "This above all, to thine own self be true", so I though I'd share my next favourite. Joseph Campbell was the world's foremost scholar of mythology and comparative religion.
Beware - this quote can change your life:

"Follow your Bliss"

- here is the full quote plus some others.

When you follow your bliss... doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else. Joseph Campbell

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are. Joseph Campbell

We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. Joseph Campbell

Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning. Joseph Campbell

Love is a friendship set to music. Joseph Campbell

Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths. Joseph Campbell

God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It's as simple as that. Joseph Campbell
