Weekly Quote – Our Voice
I like to start out the week with an inspiration quote – so this week it’s a quote by Dag Hammarskjold!
“The more faithfully you listen to the voices within you, the better you will hear what is sounding outside.”
Sometimes my head is so filled with other people’s thoughts, beliefs and opinions , it leaves me confused about what I should do, what I should think. What I need to realize is that the one voice I always need to hear is my own. We all have that gut feeling, intuition or whatever you want to label it. We just KNOW – so we need to respect our inner voice, honor it, and let it guide us.
I’m embarassed to admit that I had no clue who Dag Hammarskjold was, and then I found out he won the Nobel Peace Prize! Here’s a short bio: Dag Hjalmar Agne Carl Hammarskjöld (29 July 1905 – 18 September 1961) was a Swedish diplomat, economist, and author. The second Secretary-General of the United Nations, he served from April 1953 until his death in a plane crash in September 1961. He is one of four people to have been awarded a posthumous Nobel Peace Prize. Hammarskjöld remains the only U.N. Secretary-General to die in office, and his death occurred en route to cease-fire negotiations. American President John F. Kennedy called Hammarskjöld “the greatest statesman of our century”.
