Life Quotes

Life:

•"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind"-Dr. Seuss

•The mere sense of living is joy enough. -- Emily Dickinson

•“Every path has its puddle.”-- English Proverb

•"If it's a good idea . . . go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission."--Grace M. Hopper

•“After all, the soul travels a road that winds into eternity; where is the harm in speeding one’s passage on that voyage? Particularly when that soul has traversed in a path not altogether desirable. But then again, who are we to judge what is desirable and what is not? After all, perception is the looking glass through which we take in our surroundings and view our world, and that glass is tinted a different hue for each individual; in short, perception makes up our reality. This makes the glass cut both ways. On the one hand, it creates a magnificent diversity; an incomprehensible kaleidoscope of weltaanshaungs from which we may piece together the mysteries of existence and the multiverse. However, the light given off inevitably manages to cast equally strong shadows. The glass and its innumerable shades divide us from one another, sometimes subtly, sometimes wholly, leading to catastrophic results, from the parting of friends to the bitter verges of rival civilizations. The glass is not just a lens, it is a wall, one that many would see shattered, but simultaneously none would dare to succeed, for if that barrier were broken, the world would be one continuous stream of harmony. And though a beautiful harmony it would be, it would also be utterly devoid of melody, and therein lies the limits of a healthy paradise.

“Melody is the colorful progeny of harmony, and should never be overshadowed by it. This definition, of course, far exceeds the realm of music, into the ever-augmenting fields of history and philosophy. Just as it is the melody of a famous tune we whistle, it is the trailblazers of history who are remembered, not the people who followed in their stead or supported them, but they too are important in their own way. For harmony exists solely to embellish melody; how vibrant would the reds in our life be in our eyes without the shades of gray to compare them to?”-Matt Mckinney

•Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. -Philip K Dick

•“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”--Douglas Adams

•"Not all those who wander are lost."--J.R.R. Tolkien

•“Hell is a great place to be cuz u can complain all you want...no one has it worse than you.”
