Faith Set Afire

"Enthusiasm is a kind of faith 
that has been set afire." 
~ George Matthew Adams

"Enthusiasm is not an emotional state.
It is a spiritual commitment,
a loving surrender to our creative process.
Enthusiasm - from the Greek, 'filled with God' - 
it is an ongoing energy supply tapped into
the flow of life itself."
~ Julia Cameron

"Art cannot single-handedly create enthusiasm... 
it merely contributes to enthusiasm and guides us to be
more conscious of feelings that we might previously
have experienced only tentatively or hurriedly."
~ Alain de Botton








"Nothing is so contagious
as enthusiasm."
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Whatever your plans for the day, do it with enthusiasm!
