Not Just Empty Words

Hi!

This is an answer to the Question of the Day post here. Without any further ado, viola, the question.

What sentences (about anything) have stopped you in your tracks and changed your life?

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

Elizabeth Bennet, Pride and Prejudice

“The true voyage of discovery consists not of going to new places, but of having a new pair of eyes.”

“”This is for you,” he said, holding one of the parts out to the monk. “It’s for your generosity to the pilgrims.”
“But, this payment goes well beyond my generosity,” the monk responded.
“Don’t say that again. Life might be listening, and give you less the next time.””

The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

There was also the title of an article : “How Perfectionists Can Get Out of Their Own Way”.

 

How would you  answer the question? Post on the comments or on your own blog and let’s give people things to think about.

Love,
