Richard Bach Quotes

This page is an inspiring collection of Richard Bach Quotes.

Richard Bach is one of my favorite authors. His stories are filled with inspiration on following your heart, making your own rules, and being yourself. Check out his books - Illusions and Jonathan Livingston Seagull.


If it's never our fault,
we can't take responsibility for it.

If we can't take responsibility for it,
we'll always be its victim.

The simplest questions are the most profound.
Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change.



Allow the world to live as it chooses,
and allow yourself to live as you choose.

and sure enough they're yours.

If it's never our fault, we can't take responsibility for it.

Don't be dismayed by good-byes.
A farewell is necessary before you can meet again.
And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes,
is certain for those who are friends.



Don't believe what your eyes are telling you.
All they show is limitation.
Look with your understanding,
find out what you already know,
and you'll see the way to fly.



Every gift from a friend
is a wish for your happiness.

and choose a different future, or a different past.

If they come back they're yours;
if they don't they never were.



If you will practice being fictional for a while,
you will understand that fictional characters
are sometimes more real
than people with bodies and heartbeats.



A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit.



If your happiness depends on what somebody else does,
I guess you do have a problem.

you must expect to win.



Learning is finding out what you already know.

The simplest things are often the truest.



There are no mistakes.
The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant,
are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn;
whatever steps we take,
they're necessary to reach the places we've chosen to go.

imagine that it's already there.

than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.
