    i've been coming across so many good quotations recently that i'd like to share.

    "as long as one being gets others to bow to him because he has the power to destroy them and all they love, then all of us must be afraid together."

    "when you have wisdom that another person knows that he needs, you give it freely. but when the other person doesn't yet know that he needs your wisdom, you keep it to yourself. food only looks good to a hungry man."

    "knowledge is just opinion that you trust enough to act upon."

    "the only people who ever prize purity of ignorance are those who profit from a monopoly on knowledge."
    - han fei-tzu

    "Obstacles are those frightful things that appear when you take your mind off your goals." - ummm...don't know who said it

    I wish I was a glow worm
    cuz a glow worm's never glum
    how can you be unhappy
    when the sun shine's out yer bum?

    It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
    I want to know what you ache for
    and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

    It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
    I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
    for love
    for your dream
    for the adventure of being alive.

    It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
    I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
    if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
    or have become shrivelled and closed
    from fear of further pain.

    I want to know if you can sit with pain
    mine or your own
    without moving to hide it
    or fade it
    or fix it.

    I want to know if you can be with joy
    mine or your own
    if you can dance with wildness
    and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
    without cautioning us to
    be careful
    be realistic
    remember the limitations of being human.

    It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
    is true.
    I want to know if you can
    disappoint another
    to be true to yourself.
    If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
    and not betray your own soul.
    If you can be faithless
    and therefore trustworthy.

    I want to know if you can see Beauty
    even when it is not pretty
    every day.
    And if you can source your own life
    from its presence.

    I want to know if you can live with failure
    yours and mine
    and still stand at the edge of the lake
    and shout to the silver of the full moon,
    “Yes.”

    It doesn’t interest me
    to know where you live or how much money you have.
    I want to know if you can get up
    after the night of grief and despair
    weary and bruised to the bone
    and do what needs to be done
    to feed the children.

    It doesn’t interest me who you know
    or how you came to be here.
    I want to know if you will stand
    in the centre of the fire
    with me
    and not shrink back.

    It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
    you have studied.
    I want to know what sustains you
    from the inside
    when all else falls away.

    I want to know if you can be alone
    with yourself
    and if you truly like the company you keep
    in the empty moments.

    Dance
    As though no one is watching you.

    Love
    As though you have never been hurt before.

    Sing
    As though no one can hear you.

    Live
    As though heaven is on earth.

    The Hug

    No moving parts, no batteries.
    No monthly payments and no fees;
    Inflation proof, nontaxable,
    In fact, it’s quite relaxable;
    It can’t be stolen, won’t pollute,
    One size fits all, do not dilute.
    It uses little energy,
    But yields results enormously.
    Relieves your tension and your stress,
    Invigorate your happiness;
    Combats depression, makes you beam,
    And elevates your self esteem!
    Your circulation it corrects
    Without unpleasant side effects
    It is, I think, the perfect drug:
    May I prescribe, my friend, … the hug!
    (and, of course, fully returnable!)


    -I kinda like that one.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    - E. Hubbard

    A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.

    - Mark Twain

    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

    - Arthur Block

    A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.

    - G. K. Chesterton

    A large brain, like large government, may not be able to do simple things in a simple way.

    - Donald O. Hebb

    A man is a critic when he cannot be an artist, in the same way that a man becomes an informer when he cannot be a soldier.
