Wednesday List #22 – Words I Love

I’ve been noticing quotes lately. I used to be quite observant. In college and even law school, I would take notes on all kinds of things that struck me. As an adult and a working person, I’ve spent lots of time looking down – at my screen, at a book, at the ground beneath me – and less time looking around. Even so, words have found me. Here are some that have struck me lately:

  1. I wanted only to try to live in accord with the promptings which came from my true self. Why was that so very difficult? – Hermann Hesse’s Demian
  2. “Stay” is a charming word in a friend’s vocabulary. – Amos Bronson Alcott’s Concord Days
  3. Be slow to fall into friendships; but when thou art in, continue firm and constant. – Socrates
  4. You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the f*ck on. – Tupac
  5. Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always. – Rainer Maria Rilke
  6. Got the sunshine on my shoulders. Got a fist full of four leaf clovers. Yeah my cup runneth over. My sky is blue. Been kissed by Lady Luck. The stars are all lined up. Every arrow that I aim is true. But I miss you.- Kasey Musgraves song “I Miss You”
  7. Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. – Oprah Winfrey
  8. I hope you’re the end of my story. I hope you’re as far as it goes. I hope you’re the last word I ever utter. It’s never your time to go. – Pistol Annies song “I Hope You’re the End of My Story”

I hope something in these words spoke to something in you.
