QuOtEs: words that make you think..

Your worst enemy could be your best friend; your best friend, your worst enemy.

~ Robert

There are two kinds of friends; those who are there when you need them, and those who are there ONLY when they need you.

Being strong is not trying to hold on, but being able to let go.


~unKNOWN

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.

~Albert Einstein

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Do, or do not. There is no 'try'.


~Master Yoda

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

~Thomas Alva Edison~

We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time.

Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down.

~Jimmy Durante~

Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

~Jimi Hendrix~

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
~Henry Ford~


When ideas fail, words come in very handy.

~Goethe~

The ones who wait will be the last.

To have choice without having to choose ... that's optionality!

A friend is one before whom I may think aloud.

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me.


Ralph Waldo Emerson

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.

Make yourself necessary to somebody. Do not make life hard to any.

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.

Every artist was first an amateur.

Go ahead, flame me, shred me, crucify me and feed me to the trolls. Feedback is feedback, and I am a feedback whore. Nothing you say about what I write is capable of breaking my heart, it just makes me write more, and faster, and usually harder. Funny how sex and writing both work that way. So there.

"Sir, What is the secret of your success?"

"Two words"

"And, Sir, what are they?"

"Right decisions."

"And how do you make right decisions?"

"One word."

"And, What is that?"

"Experience."

"And how do you get Experience?"

"Two words"

"And, Sir, what are they?"

"Wrong decisions."


Version due to Jacques Barber

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

Laugh alone and the world thinks you're an idiot.

Sometimes I wake up grumpy; other times I let him sleep

Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

Feedback: I come to this thread nearly every day. What you show of yourself here causes me to seek and wanting to know more of you.



Nothing is more important about the quantum principle than this, that it destroys the concept af the world as "sitting out there," with the observer safely separated from it by a 20 centimeter slab of glass. Even to observe so minuscule an object as an electron, he must shatter the glass. He must reach in. He must install his chosen measuring equipment. ...The measurement changes the state of the electron. The universe will never afterward be the same.

Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.

~Goethe

Life will not provide what you expect or want. This is not a bad thing. Although Murphy's Law and its corollaries are true, they are the very reason that life is worth living. The beauty is in the randomness, the unpredictability, and the grace with which you accept it. ~Glen Phillips

Nothing exists but atoms and empty space. All else is opinion. ~Max Planck

When a distinguished and elderly scientist says something is possible, he is almost certainly correct; when he says something is impossible he is very probably wrong.~Arthur C. Clarke


Verbing weirds language.

How do you documentary your life when real life's getting more like fiction each day?

You should listen to your heart, not the voices in your head.

Start living now. Stop saving the good china for that special occasion. Stop withholding your love until that special person materializes. Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is ....

Our job is not to make up anybody's mind, but to open minds and to make the agony of the decision-making so intense you can escape only by thinking.

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.

Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.

The most important things in life aren't things.

To become a spectator of one's own life is to escape the suffering of life.

A great many people mistake opinions for thoughts.

People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace.
They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them.
The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.

re

Living with integrity means;

Not settling for less than you know you deserve in your relationships
Asking for what you want and need from others
Speaking your truth even though it might create conflict or tension
Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values
Making choices based on what you believe and not what others believe

No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too
seriously.

Too bad the only people who know how to run the country
are busy driving cabs and cutting hair.

ok its not a quote but its my favourite poem and its kindof appropriate here


O Could One Write as One Makes Love
by Gwen Harwood


O could one write as one makes love
when all is given and nothing kept,
then language might put by at last
its coy elisions and inept
withdrawals, yield, and yielding cast
aside like useless clothes the crust
of worn and shabby use, and trust

its candour to the urgent mind,
its beauty to the searching tongue.
Safe in the world's great house with all
its loves and griefs, at ease among
its earthly fruits, original
as earth and air, the body learns
peace, while the mind in torment burns

to strip the cloak of daily use
from language. Could one seize and move
the stubborn words to yield and sing,
then one would write as one makes love
and poems and revelations spring
like children from the mind's desire,
original as light and fire.

Ah! Young love, so naive, so immature, so unsophisticated, yet ever so charming! Every generation warns the next of the heartaches and the heartbreaks that come with this love. Yet, each generation is eager to experience love......

Love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image... otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

The first duty of love is to listen.
