"No matter where you go....there you are."
Or from Wood Allen....
"I am not afraid of death, I just do not want to be there when it happens."
"To ere is human, to forgive is divine".
There are many quotes that I use often in my life, to numerous to mention here, but the one above is a particular favourite.
they change from day to day but today it is "Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing." ~ ~ ~ William James
Nobody can hurt me without my permission. - Mahatma Gandhi
"Look for a long time at what pleases you, and longer still at what pains you." - COLETTE.
"Be light onto yourself" is my favorite quote by the Buddha
"I'm an atheist and I thank God for it."
-George Bernard Shaw
Mine has always been "Know Thyself." Don't know who originally said it but I like it because it makes sense.
It's a tie between Edmund Burke and Henry David Thoreau:
"All that is neccessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing."
"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation."
"The truth is that as man's real power grows and his knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower: until at last he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he must do ..."
- excerpt from A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula Le Guin
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
— Jim Jarmusch
