I Like To Share Profound Thoughts And Quotes

    I found this quote whose author's name is

    unknown and thought I'd share. It makes a lot of sense. "I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; Find what makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you're set. Promise." I like the quote. :)

    True Friendship

    Life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show up really late. But in the end, after the fun, there are a few who stay to help you clean up the mess. And most of the time, they...

    Conversation

     A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That's why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.  Truman Capote

    If you're going to try,

    go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery...

    “When you love someone you don’t love them

    all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide...

    There is a tide in the affairs of men.

    Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. -Shakespeare

    Cleaning Lady

    "During my second month of college, or professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the Last one: "What is the first name of the women who cleans the school?" Surely this was some kind of a joke. I had seen the...

    Sylvia Plath

    One of my favorite quotes by a lady who personified depth and could put her thoughts into words like no other:“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.” So simple, yet so much punch in a few words.
