Dan Millman quotes now featured at

A customer recently asked us to print a quote by Dan Millman, that goes, "Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world."  We soon discovered this quote was just the tip of the iceberg.  

Millman is a former world champion gymnast and renowned coach, professor and author of 14 books including Way of the Peaceful Warrior (adapted to film in 2006 - see Peaceful Warrior starring Nick Nolte).  His books are printed in 29 languages and have influenced millions, including leaders in the fields of health, psychology, education, business, politics, sports, entertainment and the arts.  So we were more than happy to make this quote available to the Dan Millman fan who requested it. 

We emailed Mr. Millman at his website,, for consent to use his name with his quote. We were very gratified to receive Dan's approval to carry not only the one requested quote, but nine others of our choosing from his book, Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior.  

We now proudly feature the 10 Dan Millman quotes listed below among our many selections at  (The images below show a sampling of our print background and frame choices. Actual print size is 15' x 7' in the frame.)

It's also worth noting that less than 24 hours after adding the "Act happy" quote to our library, the quote was picked out and cited as a favorite by a reader of Momma Told Me, a blog now running a Quote Palettes give-away contest through March 26. What good fortune that it was here for that reader to find, just in time!

We'd love to hear what you think of the quotes below - do you have a favorite?  No doubt there are many more Dan Millman quotes worthy of a place on your wall. Let us know which ones we should be adding over time.
And finally, many thanks to Dan Millman for his generous, personal contribution to
