Your Ray Bradbury Reminder On January 8

These Ray Bradbury quotes pack a real punch. They are going to make you stop and consider your world in an entirely new way.

Aries: March 21 – April 19th

“If we listened to our intellect we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go in business because we’d be cynical: ‘It’s gonna go wrong.’ Or ‘She’s going to hurt me.’ Or, ‘I’ve had a couple of bad love affairs, so therefore…’ Well, that’s nonsense. You’re going to miss life. You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.”

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.”

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

“Love will fly if held too lightly, love will die if held too tightly.”

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.”

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t ‘try’ to do things. You simply ‘must’ do things.”

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

“We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?”

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

“It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. ”

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

“Don’t ask for guarantees. And don’t look to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library. Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were heading for shore.”

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

“I think the only way we can grow and get on in this world is to accept the fact we’re not perfect and live accordingly.”

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

“If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you’ll never learn.”

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

“We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.”

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

“Stuff your eyes with wonder… live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” TC mark
