I’m a quotes person. Maybe I’m just intellectually lazy, but I simply love little nuggets of wisdom that can be easily ingested and pondered over. I keep a document in Word labelled “Random”. It’s just what it’s called, random thoughts of mine: various poets, writers, and musicians I hope to check out, objects and thoughts I come across throughout the day that give me pause. It’s also littered with quotes.
Here are some of my favorites:
“Do or do not. There is no try.” Yoda–The Empire Strikes Back
“God, please save me from your followers!” Bumper Sticker–I want, but doubt husband would tolerate.
“Now, now my good man, this is no time for making enemies.” Voltaire–on his deathbed in response to a priest asking that he renounce Satan.
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” Albert Einstein
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein–another one with great quotes.
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.” Mark Twain
