Weekend Quotes #9

“We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world. I’ve witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I’ve seen people kill in the name of them; and die defending them. But you cannot touch an idea, cannot hold it or kiss it. An idea does not bleed, it cannot feel pain, and it does not love. And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man. A man who made me remember the fifth of November. A man I will never forget.”

“It’s waking up in the middle of the night for no reason, shifting under the blankets and feeling the heat of the person next to you. You turn around and see them in their most peaceful, innocent, and vulnerable state. They breathe as though the weight of the world lays on anyone’s shoulder but their own. You smile and kiss their face gently before turning back around and somehow, an involuntary grin forms on your face.

Weekend Quotes #8

“Nothing is more terrifying than this feeling. It claws at your stomach, burns your heart, freezes your innards and causes your soul to leak from between your eye lashes. It’s tear stained cheeks and down turned lips and shuffling feet. Goose bumps crawl across your skin, shivers run havoc up your spine, you ache from within. You are not alone.”

“Something I’d like people to know: when I say I can’t do this, what I mean is that I can’t do this without losing a part of myself I really want to keep.”

“Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.”

~Erica Jong

 

“That’s life. For everyone who loves you, there will be others who hate you. If no one’s upset by what you’re saying, you’re probably not pushing hard enough and you’re probably boring too.”

~ReWork

 

“To an ordinary human being, love means nothing if it does not mean loving some people more than others”

~George Orwell
