Quotes and my thoughts
So I always take time to read lots of quotes for reasons ranging from inspiration to amusement. Sometimes I have thoughts on said quotes. Grab some tea..
“Never miss a good chance to shut up.”
― Will Rogers
“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”
― Lao Tzu
Me: True. People have to be deliberate about what they spend their time on. I think time can always be made for the people and things that matter. Make time for the things you love.
Me: I love this. It’s so important to be fully aware of your worth. It’s crazy how much you can surround yourself with people who love you at a level less than your worth when you are not aware of the fact that you deserve the best. Surround yourself with people who get it, people who also text you first, people who don’t leave you hanging, people who care about you, people who love you in an almost crazy way.
He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. — John Green (The Fault in Our Stars)
Me: That second part is quite something I must say. To just allow yourself to say true things. Tell people you miss that you miss them. Tell the people you love that you love them. Tell Susan to shut up. It’s a simple pleasure that is also very free.
Okay last one..
Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be ?― Danielle LaPorte
Me: This is actually one of my favorite quotes. This one needs its own post though. It always makes me think. The world has a way of waking dreamers out of their sleep and making cold the passions that used to make hearts warm. (feeling very poetic) It’s really easy to lose yourself along the way.
