Re: Quotable Quotes

Psychotherapy

I'll show you me, what there is to see,
the dreams, the fears, the anger inside.
I'll bring you into the darkness with me
if you hold the flame high
and warn me of demons
dancing in the shadows.
You've walked these caves before,
you know the sharp edges
and where the path narrows.
You've seen the ancient pictures
of hunted beasts.
You've seen this place, though not with me.
You can show me where the water flows,
where the sun breaks through,
where the gems glitter under the sand.
I'll show you me,
what there is to see,
if you walk ahead and hold the light.

Re: Quotable Quotes

"The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - and never knowing."
- David Viscott

"Remember to be true to your essential uniqueness."
- Max Dixon

"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."
-Gilda Radner

"The best lesson you can learn in life is how to pick yourself up off the floor, dust yourself off, and get on with things, because if there's one certainty in life, it's that you'll get knocked down many times."

Re: Quotable Quotes

Someday I will smile
And find the warmth of my smile
Reflected back to me
Someday I will reach out
And find that I only have to reach halfway
For someone will be reaching out to me
Someday I will find
The true meaning of the word Love
That many use so carelessly
Someday I will find
Someone with whom I can share
But for now I must try to know myself
And the world around me
So when the time comes for me to give
I will know the meaning of my gift

"A gentle word is never lost...
It cheers the heart when sorrow-tossed,
And lulls the cares that bruise it."

Re: Quotable Quotes

Most of the quotes people have posted here are way deeper than my favorites, among which is this one:

Re: Quotable Quotes

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
- Marcus Aurelius

The great art of life is sensation, to feel that we exist, even in pain.

If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, keep moving.
