2012 Quotes

2014 Quotes

I keep gathering so much great writing that I want to share!
Here are additional quotes from bloggers I already published this year:

.
“Life by itself, is meaningless.  If we just drift along, it’s basically rinse, wash, repeat.  If we want life to be meaningful, then we have to make it count.  When it’s time for me to say goodbye, I want tears mixed with joy.  The tears would mean that I meant something to someone, and the joy for a life well-lived.”

 - happysherlock,  Life

“It seems to be universally true that we all think we can live the other guy’s life to more success than they seem capable of.”
- entropyFine Lines

“And despite believing that intimacy is essential in relationships, I have been hesitant to share the depths of these hurts with my husband or my close friends. I still want to seem in control. I don’t want to be seen as too clingy or needy. I don’t want to be labeled a Drama Queen. I don’t want to expose my mess. I want closeness, but I want it my way; one that reflects a better me than I am.”
- Alise WrightThe Messy Business of Intimate Friendship

“Everything we see holds pieces of the stories, lives and thinking from hundreds, thousands of years ago – one thought building upon another.”
- Lori,  Golden Discovery

“We convince ourselves and others of so many things, and allow others to make us believe many things.  Sadly those doing the convincing often have ulterior motives.  Even those with pure motives can be in honest error.  As usual, I advise thinking, objective thinking.  Don’t blindly believe.”
- Archon’s Den, Syke Haul Oh Gee

“Would love be enough? I understood deeply that I didn’t know what I didn’t know yet. I knew there were a billion variables I wouldn’t know ahead of time. I was so tired of living in fear, but when each variable arose over time, would I be able to keep operating from a place of love?”
- JM Randolph, How It All Began

“Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people, too. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.”
- Jiahali, I learned the hard way
