Wise Words Wednesday 11.09.19

“A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.”

“Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends.”

Couldn’t agree more with this quote today. I guess I just am in that mood where I really miss home some days. Reading these quotes help me cope and understand that the other things I am doing are just as important. And that any place could feel like home if we just felt like it. Maybe my new room comes with the home vibes.

Hope you guys have a great day 🙂

Feeding The Right Wolf

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between
two “wolves” inside us all.

One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good.
It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute
and then asked his grandfather:
“Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one you feed.”

—A Native American Metaphor


Wise Words Wednesday

The day I’m killed,
my killer, rifling through my pockets,
will find travel tickets:
One to peace,
one to the fields and the rain,
and one
to the conscience of humankind.
Dear killer of mine, I beg you:
Do not stay and waste them.
Take them, use them.
I beg you to travel.

Samih Al-Qasim, Travel Tickets;  translated by A.Z. Foreman.

Have a good day! 🙂

Wise Words Wednesday

I feel too much. That’s what’s going on.’ ‘Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways?’ ‘My insides don’t match up with my outsides.’ ‘Do anyone’s insides and outsides match up?’ ‘I don’t know. I’m only me.’ ‘Maybe that’s what a person’s personality is: the difference between the inside and outside.’ ‘But it’s worse for me.’ ‘I wonder if everyone thinks it’s worse for him.’ ‘Probably. But it really is worse for me.

Jonathan Safran Foer

Moments

As happens sometimes, a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment.

John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men


 

Endings

“Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.”

Robert Frost

Silencio

“Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.”

Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth
