What’s inside a quote…

Quotes….they say something….they reveal something…..they speak to who you are….

Quotes….relate to us….say what we feel often better than we could say it ourselves….

Quotes….we pick them out and they show us our focus…they show us our heart…they crack open the good, bad and the ugly parts of ourselves…sometimes showing if we care to really see – that we are a reflection of a quote we like.

So with that said here are some quotes I like:

  • “I don’t think that word means what you think it means.” The Princess Bride.

I don’t like to be misunderstood…but it happens. People hear what they want to hear and so do I. It is in the asking of what do mean by that – that helps us relate to each other.

  • “Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence. ” – Robert Fripp

I love to sing! I enjoy old time gospel for the harmony. I like all kinds of different music. Everytime I walk into a certain room in my house I just begin to sing. It is always the same songs: Sitting on the dock of the bay….Somewhere out there, beneath a pale moon light….Somewhere over the rainbow……When somebody loves you it’s no good unless he loves you all the way….When I had you, I treated you bad and oh my dear, since, since you went away….Music speaks to my soul and fills the silent places of my mind with melody.

  • The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed. – Carl Jung

People are amazing. I love them. All their interesting quirks and differing interests. That fact that people can be seen like substances reacting to eachother is very cool. Some people are like Chlorine which is a disinfectant, these people are busy putting clean thoughts out there when they hear negativity. Some are like Water giving life-giving help to those around them. Some like Oil there words are thick and stick in your soul helping you to grow through encouragement, and  some like Gas they either propel you to do better or burn you to a crisp.

  • Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after. – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Talking ……..I love to talk and chat!! Communicating thoughts and ideas is a favorite pass time. I like to have good conversation that is connective on the deepest levels. These are the kinds of talks that stay for days and churn within my mind creating concepts and metaphors. ..Mind pictures and poetry. Sometimes these communications can be so intense that it feels like fire from heaven in your veins…like the Spirit of God is pressing out the pours of those conversing.

Well those are just a few quotes that I like and why they speak to me…..a reveal of  me!!

Comment back one of your own favorite qoutes and how that reveals and speaks to you!! :0)
