Quotable Sunday

Here are some quotes I love and my side tidbits on each of them LOL

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him. ~James D. Miles
~How true this rings, isn’t it funny how much of a persons character we can see when we aren’t doing things for them or not acting how they want us too.

If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters. ~Alan Simpson
~Well this really needs no tidbit, it all boils down to integrity! Some have it some don’t.

You punch me, I punch back. I do not believe it’s good for ones self-respect to be a punching bag. ~Edward Koch
~You have to stand up for yourself, after all if you don’t respect yourself why should anyone else!

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it. ~J.K. Rowling
~I can “get this” first hand. If you don’t deal with your hurt or even anger when you are going through the situation that is making you hurt/angry, later it be worse to deal with.

The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn. ~David Russell
~This is something I am dealing with on a daily basis. Some bridges are much better to burn because they are not worth crossing while others you should do all in your power to cross because what is on the other side is best for your life.

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. ~Winston Churchill
~I knew I had enemies for a reason!!! It takes a bigger person to stand up against someone or for something they believe in than it does to conform!

    I could do this all day, but I’ll keep it to three:

    The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable.
    – John Kenneth Galbraith (Because it you get three different economists in the same room, you get 6.3 different theories.)

    “Every composer knows the anguish and despair occasioned by forgetting ideas which one had no time to write down.”
    – Hector Berlioz (because this applies to bloggers too.)

    “Laughter is the closest distance between two people.”
    – Victor Borge (Amen.)

    I love that you qualify your quotes. I always do the same thing.

    I love the Edward Koch quote. It took me a long, long time to figure this one out. Now, I don’t take crap! 🙂

    I have so many favorite quotes, but one that I love is “A truely great library contains something in it to offend everyone.” – Jo Goodwin. To me, it speaks volumes, of course I’m a library lady…but I hate to see censorship. Who’s to tell me what to read/watch/know?

  3. 3

    I actually can’t think of any that are meaningful at the moment…I like yours though!
