A thread to share quotes...

A place to discuss just about anything, to get off-topic. The only restrictions are that discussions and sharing be suitable for a G-rated audience, and that the messages follow the rules of general courtesy and respect for others.

Action begets action. Today, I am living because I turned up for life. Not everyday, no, but today I did.
-Blossom
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.

This quote is not exactly on the same direction as the ones posted but here it goes:

Josie nodded and burst into tears. She turned away, embarrassed, and then felt Patrick fold his arms around her. He didn't say anything, and for that one moment, she even liked him - any word at all, even a well-meaning one, would have taken up the space where her hurt needed to be.
- Jodie Picoult

Because some times there is no need to words, only the presence is enough.

"Death must be so beautiful. To lay in the soft brown earth with the grasses waving above ones head, and to listen to silence. To have no yesterday and no to-morrow. To forget time. To forgive life. To be at peace."
- Oscar Wilde

This quote has somehow helped me along the way, given me a peace of sorts...

Thanks for starting this post and for all of you who have already shared.
In memory of my big brother Rob, my hero and best friend.

To forget time. To forgive life. To be at peace.

Came across this Dr Seuss quote soon after my loss and just love it. I still keep it in mind when dealing with people.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind - Dr Seuss.

I shall live beyond death, and I shall sing in your ears
Even after the vast sea-wave carries me back
To the vast sea-depth.
I shall sit at your board though without a body,
And I shall go with you to your fields, a spirit invisible.
I shall come to you at your fireside, a guest unseen.
Death changes nothing but the masks that cover our faces.
The woodsman shall be still a woodsman,
The ploughman, a ploughman,
And he who sang his song to the wind shall sing it also to the moving spheres.

- Kahlil Gibran

Let me think that there is one among those stars
that guides my life through the dark unknown.

... I know this world is far from perfect.
I am not the type to mistake a streetlight for the moon.
I know our wounds are deep as the Atlantic.
But every ocean has a shoreline
and every shoreline has a tide
that is constantly returning
to wake the songbirds in our hands,
to wake the music in our bones,
to place one fearless kiss on the mouth of that brave river
that has to run through the center of our hearts
to find its way home.
