The pain you feel today is the strength you feel tomorrow.
Wrinkled was not one of the things I wanted to be when I grew up.
“They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.”
“I loved her, not for the way she danced with my angels but for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons.” ~ Christopher Poindexter
“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” Unless it was our dreams that caused them. 😉
Hmmm…you means dreams gone wrong? Maybe so! I think I read it as not living dreams because we are too fearful to pursue them…too scared to take a risk. ~ Sheila
No, I mean dreams that are just scary…and sometimes influence our conscious behavior whether we remember them or not. In fact I’ve had a few lately that have clearly had a negative influence on my waking thoughts, and have been unusually difficult to forget. So, in that sense, one can be living their dreams…but in a very unpleasant way.
Yes, I see what you mean. I’m afraid I wasn’t thinking that deeply! I was just reading the statements as dreams = positive and fears = negative…but I agree there are other ways that could be interpreted! As usual, you’re perspective is broader than mine 🙂 ~ Sheila
Those are great! Copying and pasting them to my notebook of quotes. I especially like the Walt Whitman one…. Thanks for sharing –
I loved that one too! So simple, and yet so perfectly communicates the most important element is togetherness! I’m forever saving quotes too! Occasionally I reread them and feel like I’m among old friends! ~ Sheila
Gratitude turning into enough…
Yes, gratitude is the best medicine in life I believe! Makes everything better! ~ Sheila
You know I adore quotes. F. Scott Fitzgerald was so witty and clever and really knew how to turn a phrase. Wonderful collection.
I like F. Scott Fitzgerald also…yes, he had a way with words. I love quotes too. When I’m having a lazy afternoon I love to just browse quotes. Goodreads is a great resource…usually I feel like there’s too much great material to choose from! ~ Sheila
