We Forget to Appreciate the Journey

Fools are we, if hate's the gate to peace. ~ Dave Matthews Band, The Last Stop #lyrics

Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends. ~ William Shakespeare #Quote

I know of no great man except those who have rendered great services to the human race. ~ Voltaire #quote

Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie, which we ascribe to heaven. ~ William Shakespeare #Quote

The torment that so many young women know, bound hand and foot by love and motherhood, without having forgotten their former dreams. ~ Simone de Beauvoir #quote

Bigger than wrestling, bigger than the Beatles, and bigger than breast implants. I'm gonna be the biggest thing to hit these little kids. ~ Atmosphere, Guns And Cigarettes #Lyrics

Revenge is one of the few things in politics that never gets lost in the mail or written off for a dime on the dollar like losers' campaign debts or pledges to help the Poor. ~ Hunter S. Thompson #quote, Songs Of The Doomed - More Notes On The Death Of The American Dream

Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world. ~ Johann von Goethe #quote

You can't get spoiled if you do your own ironing. ~ Meryl Streep #quote

Men have always detested women's gossip because they suspect the truth: their measurements are being taken and compared. ~ Erica Jong #quote

The elimination of the will altogether and the switching off of the emotions all and sundry, is tantamount to the elimination of reason: intellectual castration. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche #quote

Poetry is the language in which man explores his own amazement... says heaven and earth in one word... speaks of himself and his predicament as though for the first time.

Beauty is the purgation of superfluities. ~ Michelangelo Buonarroti #quote

The great commitment is so much easier than the ordinary, everyday one - and can all too easily shut our hearts to the latter. A willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice can be associated with, and even produce, a great hardness of heart. You thought you were indifferent to Praise for achievements which you would not yourself have counted to your credit, or that, if you should be tempted to feel flattered, you would always remember that the Praise far exceeded what the events justified. You thought yourself indifferent - until you felt your jealousy flare up at his naive attempts to make himself important, and your self-conceit stood exposed. Concerning the hardness of the heart - and its littleness - let me read with open eyes the book my days are writing, and learn. ~ Dag Hammarskjold #quote, Markings

America is an enormous frosted cupcake in the middle of millions of starving people. ~ Gloria Steinem #quote

Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength. ~ Lao-Tzu #quote

Call a truce, then, to our labours ~ let us feast with friends and neighbours, and be merry as the custom of our caste; for if faint and forced the laughter, and if sadness follow after, we are richer by one mocking Christmas past. ~ Rudyard Kipling #quote

Never try to out-stubborn a cat. ~ Robert A. Heinlein #quote, Lazarus Long, Time Enough for Love (The Notebooks of Lazarus Long)

It is no use trying to sum people up. One must follow hints, not exactly what is said, nor yet entirely what is done. ~ Virginia Woolf #quote

There is no order in the world around us, we must adapt ourselves to the requirements of chaos instead. ~ Kurt Vonnegut #quote, Breakfast of Champions

Don't let your life pass you by, weep not for the memories. ~ Sarah McLachlan, I Will Remember You #lyrics

A collections of anecdotes and maxims is the greatest of treasures for the man of the world, for he knows how to intersperse conversation with the former in fit places, and to recollect the latter on proper occasions. ~ Johann von Goethe #quote

If you give an audience a chance they will do half your acting for you. ~ Katharine Hepburn #quote

Alcohol, alternative to feeling like yourself. Oh alcohol, I still drink to your health. ~ Bare Naked Ladies, Alcohol #Lyrics

Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast. ~ Oscar Wilde #quote

The growth of wisdom may be gauged exactly by the diminution of ill temper. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche #quote

What a drag it is getting old.  ~ The Rolling Stones, Mother's Little Helper #lyrics

Forgiveness is the needle that knows how to mend. ~ Jewel, Under The Water #lyrics

People have forgotten how to tell a story. Stories don't have a middle or an end any more. They usually have a beginning that never stops beginning. ~ Steven Spielberg #quote

He wants to sell his paintings, but the market is slow, they're only paying two grams.  ~ Jefferson Airplane #lyrics

Celebrity is never more admired than by the negligent. ~ William Shakespeare #Quote

These are the soul's changes. I don't believe in aging. I believe in forever altering one's aspect to the sun. Hence my optimism. ~ Virginia Woolf #quote

The lack of belief is a defect that ought to be concealed when it cannot be overcome. ~ Jonathan Swift #quote

I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes - and the stars through his soul. ~ Victor Hugo #quote

There is a kind of courtesy in skepticism. It would be an offence against polite conventions to press our doubts too far. ~ George Santayana #Quote

When rich villains have need of poor ones, poor ones may make what price they will. ~ William Shakespeare #Quote

You tell me that you've got everything you want, and your bird can sing. But you don't get me. ~ The Beatles, And Your Bird Can Sing #Lyrics

Better to be silent than to speak without a thought. ~ Traffic, Means To An End #lyrics

They cannot take away our self-respect if we do not give it to them. ~ Mahatma Gandhi #quote

We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness. ~ George Orwell #quote, 1984

Hey you, out there on your own sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me? - Pink Floyd, Hey You #Lyrics

Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself. His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your judgment. ~ Seneca the Elder #Quote

Marks on paper are free - free speech - press - pictures all go together I suppose. ~ Georgia O'Keeffe #quote

We are paid for our suspicions by finding what we suspected. ~ Henry David Thoreau #quote

You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Dogs do not ritually urinate in the hope of persuading heaven to do the same and send down rain. Asses do not bray a liturgy to cloudless skies. Nor do cats attempt, by abstinence from cat's meat, to wheedle the feline spirits into benevolence. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough. ~ Aldous Huxley #quote

We are so often caught up in our destination that we forget to appreciate the journey, especially the goodness of the people we meet on the way. Appreciation is a wonderful feeling, don't overlook it. ~ Source Unknown #quote
