Wanting Wednesday....

Quotes about wanting

What do you want?

I want to be admired, respected, appreciated, desired, needed, and loved unconditionally. I'm kinda low maintenance, I guess. Just give me the basics. I've been pretty content with those things so far. Anything else would just be icing on the cake--like that one thing we talked about earlier today and sometimes that's more of a headache than it's worth ANYWAY!

Nichelle said...

I want to say Hey Supa! What's happening? Hahaha....

Oh, yeah - your question. What do I want? EVERYTHING.

That is all:)

P said...

I wanna know what love is. . .I want you to show me. . . :P

Naw. . .

I want to make a difference in people's lives. What value has my earthly life been if all that I know (at least that is positive) is not shared, or developed, or passed along.

In the casket, you never look at someone and say how good looking they were, or how good of a career they had. . .You remember them for what they were (or were not) in your life. I always try to remember that, though I don't necessarily live as such all the time. :(

Good Post.

I want a husband who is strong, understanding, patient, kind, beautiful ( from the inside out!)and most of all loves the Lord and will be a great role-model for my children.

I want to be able to do it all, do it well, do it with a purpose and do it with a smile.

Brave Lurker said...

I want joy because it's permanent. Happiness is fleeting and driven by circumstances, joy is the personification of knowing that you're fine no matter what happens.

Miz JJ said...

I want me and my family to be healthy and happy. For myself I want to find someone to share my life with if not that then a great career.

African girl, American world said...

I love the faith one :)

I want to lead a fulfilled life and not have to worry so damn much. I want to wake up every day and be thankful to be alive and not think it is just another day in my life. I want to be proud of my life when I look back. I want my babies to grow up and be the bestest black men ever to walk the face of the earth.

I want Supa to tell us the Girl/bra story and the not the man you were told was your father is your father. You thought we forgot??

Supa said...

@ a.i.n.t. - DAP!

@ Nichelle: Hey Ms. Novelista! Me wants everything too.. :)

@ P: Heeeeeey P! I miss your tall ass..don't get to make my blog rounds like I usta...(school, chile! school) Love your "wants"

@ MzTiredofBS: (loving the name, btw) I feel you on your wants. Beautiful. *sigh* I'm such an idealist...

@ 1969: LOVE IT!! I think you're doing just that, right ma? (wink)

@ Brave: Wassup, sis! Yes. Just now getting a grasp on "joy" myself..thx for that.

@ Ms. JJ: Feelin ya on that one as well..

@ Mwabs: Righteous, sis!!

Thanks for these. I think identifying our "wants" (no matter how large or small) can bring about clarity and action...

chele said...

I wanna be loved
Faithful and true
I wanna be loved
10,000,000 lifetimes with you ...

Gotta love the former Mr. Berry.

What do I want? A good night's sleep.

Knockout Zed said...

I want to NOT want.

Desire is the problem.

lmao @:"I want a project chick..give me a hood-rat bitch.." American Niggas

you are nutty. desire is fabulous. it urges us onward and upward. that last answer on the poll may get you a visit from the secret service. a 13 yo girl got one b/c of her myspace page on the same topic.

DollFace said...

I want to understand the lesson I am supposed to learn from my hellish year so that it all will not be in vain

P said...

@ Sup:

Yep, I understand the school component. I'm back in. my life is a virtual zoo and I don't have kids so you must be the chief zookeeper (not to refer to your kids as animals). . .this is straight tongue in cheek.

Damn Sup that makes a Lady think what do I want hmmmm Ditto a.i.n.t....I want what I am worth and Sup thats something that you would post this (I got this today from a friend)....

In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the
question, "What kind of man are you looking for?" She sat quietly for a
moment before looking him in the eye and asking, "Do you really want to
know?" Reluctantly, he said, "Yes." She began to expound..."As a woman
in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man what he can do for
me that I can't do for myself.I pay my own bills. I take care of my
household without the help of any man...or woman for that matter. I am
in the position to ask, "What can you bring to the table?"

The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to
money.She quickly corrected his thought and stated, "I am not referring
to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for
perfection in every aspect of life." He sat back in his chair, folded
his arms, and asked her to explain.

She said, "I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection
mentally because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don't
need a simple- minded man. I am looking for someone who is striving for
perfection spiritually because I don't need to be unequally yoked . . .
believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster. I need a man
who is striving for perfection financially because I don't need a
financial burden. I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to
understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me
grounded. I am looking for someone who I can respect.In order to be
submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who
isn't taking care of his business.

I have no problem being submissive... he just has to be worthy.God made
woman to be a helpmate for man. I can't help a man if he can't help
himself." When she finished her spill, she looked at him. He sat there
with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "You're asking a lot." To
which she replied, "I'm worth a lot."

I know I know Long, how is school?

Single Ma said...

Hey Supa! *wavin*

I want it all; money, fast cars
Diamond rings, gold chains and champagne
Shit, everydamn thing
I want it all; houses, expenses
My own business, a truck, hmm, and a couple o' Benz's
I want it all; brand new socks and drawls
And I'm ballin everytime I stop and talk to y'all
I want it all, all, all, all
I want it all, all, all, all, all

Wut u know 'bout that? HA HA

No seriously, if I could have just one thing, it would be the ability to accept things I can't control.

The Phoenix aka ThatGirlTam said...

I want my mother to get over it before it's too late.

I want my children to always know that they're loved.

I want my husband to know how much he's appreciated.

I want to continue touching the lives of people I don't know, and people I DO know.

Everything else is relative...
