Quotable

22 Nov

Because I have had too much coffee (see javajavajava below) I will now proceed to impart the wisdom of the quotable magnets:

Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, “Grow, grow.” – The Talmud

“There is no use trying,” said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.”  “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.  “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day.  Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Lewis Carroll

peace.  it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.  it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. – unknown

at the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want. – lao tzu

i beg you… to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language.  don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them.  the point is, to live everything.  live the questions now.  perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer… – rainer maria rilke

Some dream of fortunes, others dream of cookies. – fortune cookie

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.  Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.  Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best.  Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.  Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.  Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you. – Christian D. Larson

It’s funny how many of these damned silly things are so useful to my life right now.  Damn you magnets for being smarter than me!

    I absolutely love the Lewis Carroll one the best, and agree wholeheartedly with the Queen of Hearts. I also agree one hundred percent with Lao Tzu, how true that is.

    Love you and love that you love these quotes, they are fantastic.
