Quotes

It is vain to think that any weariness, however caused, any burden, however slight, may be got rid of otherwise than by bowing the neck to the yoke of the Father’s will. There can be no other rest for heart and soul than He has created. From every burden, from every anxiety, from all dread of shame or loss, even loss of love itself, that yoke will set us free.

George MacDonald

Vain.

You want to come into my life; the door is open. You want to get out of my life; the door is open. Just one request: don’t stand at the door. You’re blocking the traffic.

Unknown

One request.

You’re special.

Otherwise I wouldn’t like you so much.

I can’t explain it,

But you are so cool.

You are so sweet.

You are so cute.

You are…you…

You’re special.

I appreciate that you don’t feel the need to talk all the time.

You appreciate silence.

You appreciate thinking.

You work hard.

You wish you could play harder :)

I wish we could hang out.

I wish we could just chill.

I wish we could take trips together,

And listen to music,

And just be

…together.

Doesn’t that sound nice?

How unfortunate that you’ve never even thought about this!

I think we could be friends.

I think we could be good friends.

I wish you thought the same…

Precious.
Yes, precious:
A boy with unbridled imagination.
With what wide eyes you see the world!
With what kindness you look through those eyes!
Adorable, yet brave.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever met an adorable warrior before
…but you are that.
Precious you,
I’m glad you’re in this world.

I have expressed my strong interest in the mass of the people; and this is founded, not on their usefulness to the community, so much as on what they are in themselves…. Indeed every man (sic), in every condition, is great. It is only our own diseased sight which makes him little. A man is great as a man, be he where or what he may. The grandeur of his nature turns to insignificance all outward distinctions.

(William Ellery Channing)

I recently had a conversation with some friends about the origin of life and the significance of man. The quote above states my view with clarity and supports my belief that we should take pride in the beauty of our human form, our lives, and the world in which we live.

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

-George Eliot

Oh, the comfort…

I asked for STRENGTH and God gave me DIFFICULTIES to make me strong.

I asked for WISDOM and God gave me PROBLEMS to solve.

I asked for PROSPERITY and God gave me BRAWN AND BRAINS to work.

I asked for COURAGE and God gave me DANGERS to overcome.

I asked for PATIENCE and God placed me in SITUATIONS where I was forced to WAIT.

I asked for LOVE and God gave me TROUBLED SOULS to help.

I asked for FAVORS and God gave me OPPORTUNITIES.

I asked for EVERYTHING so I could enjoy LIFE.

Instead, he gave me LIFE so I could enjoy EVERYTHING!

I received NOTHING I WANTED; I received EVERYTHING I NEEDED.

Nothing I wanted.

My friend sent this to me in an e-mail…Anne always said it best :)

“When I left Queen’s my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don’t know what lies around the bend, but I’m going to believe that the best does. It has a fascination of its own, that bend, Marilla.” ~ Anne of Green Gables

the best is yet to come.

The human individual lives usually far within his limits; he possesses powers of various sorts which he habitually fails to use. He energizes below his maximum, and he behaves below his optimum. In elementary faculty, in coordination, in power of inhibition and control, in every conceivable way, his life is contracted like the field of vision of an hysteric subject; but with less excuse, for the poor hysteric is diseased, while in the rest of us it is only an inveterate habit — the habit of inferiority to our full self…

– William James, The Energies of Men
