Aww... thanks, Andene! I collect a lot of quotes (esp. inspirational ones), and now that I've joined the world of Pinterest I've started pinning some of them.
I come from one of those everything is OK (no matter how awful it is) family. A few years ago I found this quote and use it to remind me to be truly honest about how things are going.
Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'erfraught heart and bids it break.
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
These are Buddhist quotes:
"Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional."
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change."
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live" - Albus Dumbledore
^ That is one of my favorites too.
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” - Mark Twain
“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” -Mark Twain
