“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”  Marcel Proust

I love this quote.  Because I am such a visual person, quotes that bring up vivid powerful pictures really hit home for me.  This one brings up so much.  On one hand I imagine myself on a boat in a wide open sea.  The sun shining brilliantly accross the water, my hair blowing in the breeze and a huge smile of exicted anticipation on my face as I approach new places from an open vantage point – with clear eyes wanting to see it all.  On the other hand I also see myself opening my eyes in familiar places, yet seeing them with much greater color and emotion.  Seeing things for the first time that had been in front of me all the while.  Again I have the same feeling of excitement, this time from childlike wonder.  Each image fills me with such delight, that my whole being is sparked.

What are some of your favorite quotes that evoke an incredible spark in you?
