Worldly Words of Wisdom

Worldly Words of Wisdom

Postby BomGolf222 » Sun Jan 03, 2010 10:07 pm

I'm always coming across thoughts or quotes from reading, or wherever it might be, that have something to offer the golfer's brain or soul, but aren't actually from golfers. I figured I'd start a thread in their honour.....

I'll kick it off with a quote from an architect I like and have done a little reading about, he's an interesting character.



When one knows what to do, there is only little time one needs for doing it. It is only when one does not Know what to do that it takes so much time. And to know what to do is the secret of it all."

-Louis Kahn, Architect(not golf course)

If you think you can,

Or think you can't,

Either way, you're right....

"You will see it once you understand it" ("Je gaat het pas zien als je het doorhebt")

Johan Cruijff

a couple of other Cruijff classics:

"Every disadvantage has it's advatage" (Elk nadeel heb z'n voordeel)
"Before I make a mistake, I don't make that mistake" (Voordat ik een fout maak, maak ik die fout niet)
"If I wanted you to understand, I would have explained it better" (Als ik zou willen dat je het begreep, legde ik het wel beter uit)

“Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends”

Joseph Campbell

or

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.”

JC

Is the lagbag a sacred space or what?

One Mo---

We're so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it's all about.

-Joseph Campbell

"I feel like a rock star. Without a doubt it's the passion, I'm passionate about everything, when I make a cup of tea, it's the best cup of tea ever. Everything has to be the nuts. It's hard, but it's fun at the same time. I'm always on stage, even when I'm off stage. Regret nothing! It was all meant to be"

One stormy night long ago a black sedan traveling very slowly up 17 Mile Drive in Monterey is pulled over by an officer of the law during the week of the Clambake. Driving the vehicle, sitting on a stack of cloth napkins is one 12 year old Nathaniel Crosby. In the backseat is his uncle, martini in hand and two individuals, also in tuxedos who will remain nameless. The officer asks Mr Crosby Sr to explain the situation. 'Sir, he's the best we've got.' The officer agrees and sends the sedan on its way.
