Lazy me.. Quotey mood…

Hehe… been lazy again… have not been updating my blog.

Anyways, i’m here to share quotes which i just found online, was reading through some forums and someone shared this quote which i found so true and so sweet.

"I know that when you're young, it feels like everyday the world is going to end, but it's not. One day you'll find a boy who will treat you exactly how you deserve to be treated, who thinks that the sun rises and sets with you."

It sounds like something a grandmother would say to comfort or advice her granddaughter. So so so sweet.

“One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend". We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older. The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young. We then have to nurture and grow those friendships over our middle age when a busy life and changing geographies can cause us to neglect those friends. Today is the day to invest in those people we hope will call us 'old friend" in the years to come.”

i don know…hmm…. will i have an old friend in the future?

“It is explained that all relationships require a little give and take. This is untrue. Any partnership demands that we give and give and give and at the last, as we flop into our graves exhausted, we are told that we didn't give enough.”

Ghost: But i’ve tried my best.
King of Hell: Your best is not enough.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech

Such impactful words…such inspirational words…such difficult actions…

“Courage is not the absence of fear but the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all. For now you are travelling the road between who you think you are and who you can be.”

This was in Princess Diaries – something i always try to remember – but yet..i am a scardy cat i’m afraid.

Finallyi leave you with a very very sad quote that i recently heard when watching the movie “Four Funerals and a Wedding”. This was given as a eulogy in a funeral.

“Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bonel,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let the aeroplanes circle, moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message 'He is Dead'.

Put crepe bows 'round the white necks of the public doves,
Let traffic policemen wear black, cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East, and West.

My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good

(W.H. Auden)
