You Can Quote Me! Part 1

You might think I’m being lazy with this writing because I’m simply re-quoting parts and pieces from my books, blogs and social media feeds. Well, to you naysayers, I would say…YOU ARE CORRECT. But in fairness to laziness, I’m re-quoting parts and pieces that others have told me that meant something to them. So think of it this way: someone else has taken away the cumbersome chore of chewing your food for you.

See? When you look at it like that, it’s gross but it’s easier to find the positive.

CONFUSION is that state of mind where you fear that to turn off the light will cause the world to disappear. CLARITY tells you that you will survive even when it’s dark outside, even when you are afraid to open your eyes.

Don’t tolerate a show of strength to the weak. That’s called bullying. Flex the muscles of your character to care for those less fortunate.

When we lie to ourselves, we fool no one.

Be wary around someone who purports to have all of the answers before they’ve asked you any questions.

If you don’t like what you’re seeing, you’re looking in the wrong direction.

Maturity allows us to finally forgive others for any perceived wrong they’ve committed against us. Add to maturity wisdom, and you will finally be able to forgive yourself for the wrongs that you’ve committed.

Hope flew past my window with fear on its heels. Hope would die, I just felt it. But then out of nowhere, a perfect love chased fear until it cowered. As long as love remains, hope returns.

Predators often cut their prey off from the herd, making the lone animal weaker and more vulnerable. Don’t stray too far from those who keep you strong.

I’m not sure if it’s true that “You are what you eat.” I think the opposite is more true: “YOU ARE WHAT CONSUMES YOU.”

We are motivated by two primary drives: fear and hope. Fear is useful when running from a bear; hope, though, is what tells us that the world isn’t made up of bears.

You don’t win medals for what you DON’T do: I didn’t rob a bank, I didn’t kill a homeless man, I didn’t sleep with my neighbor’s wife. Living a life of DON’Ts isn’t the same as living a life driven by positive intent and purpose.

If I could have any superpower, I would want it to be forgiveness. Then I could say, ” I have forgiven you once, and I’m not afraid to do it again.

Once you see each day as a gift, you won’t be so eager to reject it when the alarm goes off in the morning.

Good listeners don’t necessarily have bigger ears, but they usually have bigger hearts.

When you listen in the spirit, every noise is a whisper designed to prompt you into appropriate action. And in the spirit, even the lies you’ve been told serve the purpose of pushing you towards truth.

Love means never having to say “I’m sorry.” Really? That sounds more like pride than love. Maybe the goal of love should be to not knowingly give offense to another.
