I always find it really interesting, reading the info page of people on Facebook – especially their favourite quote. It can you tell you a lot about someone.
I didn’t realize how up-lifting quotes could be, until I saw this one: “I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I do not feel it. I believe in God even when he is silent.’ This was scrawled on a wall where Jews had hidden in World War 2. It gave me goose-bumps, when I thought how frightened these people must have been but how deep their belief was. Now whether or not you believe, is in material, what I LOVE is the thinking behind the quote.
Here are some more of my favourites (I don’t always know who said them – sorry!):
‘Speak love, live love, be love.”
‘Dance like no one is watching, love like you’ve never been hurt, sing like no one is listening.’
‘Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.’
Then there are the fun ones:
‘Women are Angels! When someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly on a broom stick. We’re flexible like that!’
‘You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders…’ Ray Bradbury
‘Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right, either way’
