Joseph Campbell

I watched The Secret  for more than 100 times. One of my favorite quote from the movie is 'Follow your bliss,the Universe will open door for you where there were only walls ' from Joseph Campbell. So, I wanted to find out more about him, his quotes and his work . 

I read about him at Wiki over here .  Very impressive . Here are some of his favorite quotes which I like :-

**Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.

**Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.

**Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.

**I don't have to have faith, I have experience.

**I think the person who takes a job in order to live - that is to say, for the money has turned himself into a slave.

**Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.

**Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.

**The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

**We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

**Your life is the fruit of your own doing. You have no one to blame but yourself.

You can find his list of books over here.

That's it, have a beautiful day :) cheers
