Fucking Shit Man...

Typed an entire, well-thought out, delightfully witty post about quotes, and Blogger ate it. Greedy bitch.

Sigh. Whatever.

Supa's quote of the week:

There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A person's whole life is a succession of moment after moment. If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue.


(So..guess I won't pursue my lost post. Growl.)

What's your favorite quote? Share. Gimme.

Supa, out!

If you think education is expensive, Try Ignorance .

The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you
experience can create who you are, and the bad experiences can be learned
from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If
someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because
they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious
to whom you open your heart to.

Most of my quotes come from music...music does it for me.


'What you want might make you cry
What you need might pass you by
If you don't catch it,
And what you need ironically
Will turn out what you want to be
If you just let it'

I got plenty but lets start there :)

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

"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 most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? 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 other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as 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."

"Writing is a cop-out. An excuse to live perpetually in fantasy land, where you can create, direct and watch the products of your own head. Very selfish."

"Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the face."

“My life has been threatened many times. My death will be for the liberation of my people, and a testimony of hope for the future. A bishop will die but the Church of God, which is the people, will never perish. I don’t believe in death without resurrection. They can kill me, but they cannot kill the voice of justice. If they kill me, I will rise again in the Salvadoran people…” -Archbishop Oscar Romero

Any piece of clothing can be sexy with a quietly passionate woman inside it.

The gods envy us. They envy because we are mortal; because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we are doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again. – Achilles, from the movie Troy

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. - Albert Einstein

"if you can't change the people around you, change the people around you"

"either you're a part of the solution or you're a part of the problem"

Oh, baby girl. Don't you HATE when Blogger does that? Fucking shit! Yeah!

I'm really digging your quote & I like the one by Uknown that I found the other day:

"Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option."

Then MzNewAgenda blew my mind with a post warning folks not to be a "lease with option to buy."

Damn. I wish Blogger hadn't messed you up. I just know you would have some shit I'd want to steal and post up! LOL

"Love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us....

Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit! Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!"
