I was looking through an old file of quotes on my laptop this evening. I’m not entirely sure what I was in search of, nor that I found it, but it did bring to mind some quotes I really like, and some things I need to think about again these days. Mostly so I don’t forget them, but also to set them out for you to ponder as well, here are a few:
There are many degrees of sight and many degrees of blindness. What senses do we lack that we cannot see another world all around us?
Love does not begin and end the way
we seem to think it does.
Love is a battle, love is a war;
love is a growing up.
Love takes off masks that we fear
we cannot live without and know we
cannot live within.
– James Baldwin
“We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and techology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.”
– Carl Sagan
Love what you do. Get good at it. Competence is a rare commodity in this day and age.
– Jon Stewart
Many a man is praised for his reserve and so-called shyness when he is simply too proud to risk making a fool of himself.
-J. B. Priestley
Ow… Priestley, that was a little close to home.
Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
