Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Way way too much. I'm a terrible overthinker. I have to leave
myself notes everywhere or my scattered brain will wander off and
forget everything like a dog chasing a lightning bug.
I like collecting quotes! Which I realize sounds utterly
insufferable however, and stay with me here, ....it's not?
Ok fine, it's a little insufferable. But shut up about it. Jeez
o'weez you're so judgey right now.
Here are a few I've always found inspiring and grounding. Also, I
like to remind myself that sometimes the simplest phrases can be
the most profound.
"The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the
illusion of knowledge." ~Stephen Hawking
"The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be
perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our
own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only
their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we
only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them." ~Thomas
Merton, 'No Man is an Island'
"The connections we make in the course of a life - maybe that's
what heaven is." ~Fred Rogers
"With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come." ~William
"I can write the saddest poem of all tonight. I loved her, and
sometimes she loved me too." ~Pablo Neruda
"I would like to see anyone, prophet, king or God, convince a
thousand cats to do the same thing at the same time." ~Neil
"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you much first
invent the universe." ~Carl Sagan, 'Cosmos'
"We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools."
~Martin Luther King Jr.
"You're going to die, Arnie. Someday, you fill face that moment.
Regardless of what you believe, at that moment either you will face
complete nonexistence, which is something you can't possibly
imagine, or you will face something even stranger that you also
can't possibly imagine. On at actual day in the future, you will be
in the unimaginable, Arnie. Set your mind on that." ~David Wong,
'John Dies at the End'
"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same
river and he's not the same man." ~Heraclitus
