Evelyn Glennie Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Evelyn Glennie from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Hearing is a form of touch.
You feel it through your body, and sometimes it almost hits your face.
- Evelyn Glennie

If I am happy in spite of my deprivations,
if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith,
so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life.
If, in short, I am an optimist,
my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.
- Helen Keller PHOTO
...
Helen Keller (1880-1968) overcame being both deaf and blind

One of the greatest cause of unhappiness -

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I'm tired of hearing about money, money,
money, money, money.
I just want to play the game, drink Pepsi,
wear Reebok.
- Shaquille O'Neal

Time to Die:
A Zen teacher had a rare and priceless teacup.
One day, his precocious student accidentally broke the cup.
Hearing the footsteps of his teacher,
the student held the pieces of the cup behind his back.
When the master appeared, he asked: "Why do people have to die?"
"This is natural," explained the teacher.
"Everything has to die and has just so long to live."
The student showed the shattered cup, saying,
"It was time for your cup to die."
