William Arthur Ward
Can we walk that thin line between constant change and continuation? And in the middle of this flux, feel gratitude but not hold on?

Faith is so rare-and religion so common-because no one wants to live between first base and second base. Faith is the in-between space where you’re not sure you’ll make it to second base. You’ve let go of one thing and haven’t yet latched into another. Most of us choose the security of first base.
Richard Rohr
Relaxation is one of the most complex phenomena – very rich, multidimensional. All these things are part of it: let-go, trust, surrender, love, acceptance, going with the flow, union with existence, egolessness, ecstasy. All these are part of it, and all these start happening if you learn the ways of relaxation.
I learned long ago that loss is not only probable but inevitable. I know what it means to lose everything, to let go of one life and find another. And now I feel, with a strange, deep certainty, that it must be my lot in life to be taught that lesson over and over again.
Christina Baker Kline

The other thing I like, in fact, several months ago I introduced a bill to end the absurd catch and release policy where our government has been giving tickets, essentially, to people who enter illegally and then letting them go and show up of their own volition.

Wendy Keller
Everything will change when your desire to move on exceeds your desire to hold on.
Alan Cohen
As an artist, I think it’s critical for keeping yourself alive that you try to get your hands into something a little bit more intensely.

Franny Billingsley

Sara Evans
You can only lose what you cling to.
Gautama Buddha
We can begin to let go of the complications that cause us to suffer by cultivating a simple state of awareness.

So, it’s not even capable of being wrong, or being falsified, or being showed to be wrong.
Peter Woit
To give freedom is still more easy. It is not necessary to guide; it only requires to let go the rein.

Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness.

Elizabeth Gilbert

I still have faith in people. But that is getting increasingly harder to maintain. I just don’t see many people today choosing love. I see people passing it up a lot. Foreclosing on it, deferring it, sabotaging, letting go.
Masha Tupitsyn

Yiyun Li
The demons aren’t the noise. They are our aversion to the noise…when you can accept discomfort, doing so allows a balance of mind. That surrender, that letting go of wanting anything to be other than it is right in the moment, is what frees us from hell.
Stephen Levine
The thing you can’t let go of is gravity. The reality of gravity in writing. If someone says something really mean in a sitcom, and the next wave isn’t a reaction to the reality of that, you start losing relatability. In a lot of romantic comedies, they throw out the rules of life.
Michael Patrick King
As an actor, I still have to remind myself of daring to let go and not to repeat myself.

Robert Kiyosaki
Yeah, letting go – even just musically, aside from emotionally – I find that quite challenging. Knowing the right time for letting go of my album, for instance, was a really big challenge. Knowing when to put the red flags up and say, “It’s done…” And also, emotionally, with relationships.
I’m beginning to perceive motherhood as a long, slow letting go, of which birth is just the first step.
Sandra Steingraber

Rachael Ray
Everybody’s got a past. The past does not equal the future unless you live there.
Tony Robbins

Jeffery Deaver
Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties.
Gail Sheehy
All methods of meditation are nothing but methods to help you to remember the art of let-go. I say remember, because you knew it already. And you know it still, but that knowledge is being repressed by the society.
It’s challenging as an actor to let go but I had some pleasure out of it too. To not have the effort of having to present myself is quite liberating.

Brian Tracy
True zazen is surrendering every moment. But surrendering to what? It really does not matter what we call it: God or the Tao or the Dharma or the Buddha or our true nature. . . . It is the act of letting go, of surrendering, that matters. The very act of letting go opens us up completely.
Dennis Merzel

Being and having in our society teaches us how to take possession of things, when it should rather initiate us in the art of letting go. For there is neither freedom nor real life without an apprenticeship in letting go.

Joe Strummer
Some kind of clutter is difficult – letting go of things with sentimental value, sifting through papers – but some clutter I find very refreshing to clear. I drive my daughters nuts because I’m always wandering into their rooms to clear clutter.
Gretchen Rubin

Tasha Alexander
It appears to me that men are trying to speak for God instead of letting God speak for himself.
Theodore M. Burton

Naomi Campbell
Richard thought a moment. “I don’t know, but we have to get across the pass. We’re too tired to have to spend tonight fighting shadows again. We must get to the Midlands before dark.

Terry Goodkind

I can imagine nothing more wonderful than always wanting to keep a man. It’s this NOT wanting to keep them, and yet not quite being able to disentangle one’s self, never quite having the ruthlessness to stike at the hands on the gunwale with an oar until they let go – that’s the horrible thing.
Rose Wilder Lane

Joni Eareckson Tada

What happens when you let go, when your strength leaves you and you sink into darkness, when there’s nothing that you or anyone else can do, no matter how desperate you are, no matter how you try? Perhaps it’s then, when you have neither pride nor power, that you are saved, brought to an unimaginably great reward.
Mark Halperin
Be willing to let go of who you are, to become who you might be

Bryant H. McGill
Oswald Chambers writes, ‘Never make a principle out of your experience; let God be as original with other people as He is with you.’  To that I would add, ‘Be careful not to turn others’ lives into the mold for your own.’  Allow God to be as creative with you as He is with each of us.

Simone Elkeles
Well, my book is written-let it go. But if it were only to write over again there wouldn’t be so many things left out. They burn in me; and they keep multiplying; but now they can’t ever be said. And besides, they would require a library-and a pen warmed up in hell.
Mark Twain
Please let go your anger and please send my Saet Byul back. She is my everything
Kim Soo-hyun
