I have met some pretty fantastic people online and offline, that have fantastic conversation. No matter what topic we are on, they always have the perfect quips, responses and quotes on hand. These are the most entertaining persons especially when marinated in wisdom. Proverbial quotes – I like them. They can be witty, instructional and informational all at once. Wisdom does indeed come with age though I have found divine wisdom coming out of the mouths of babes, on a few occasions as well. That’s the best kind of communicative exchange – when you walk away wiser and proactively in thought.
I was raised in the church and I remember when Pastor Floyd G. Taylor would preach and the saints were feeling it – they would belt out encouraging remarks like, “SAY THAT!, Tell the truth! and Amen!” Those are my exact sentiments when I fall into the captive conversation of a well versed conversationalist. Now while I can hold my own in verse, I am always in it to learn so the following quotes are a a mixed bag of wisdom, order and musical fad. All of the quotes are enlightening and much can be drawn from them in comprehension. Let’s take a gander at WHO SAID WHAT:
“The here after is what we are here after – [this refers to] life and how we live it.” — Thomas JNewark, NJ
[I was dealt this quote from a member of Hi5/Tagged].
ADD THIS up!
“I’d rather have 4 quarters than a 100 pennies. I don’t roll real deep just a few real brothers.
You can have 10 dimes, I’ll take a solid dollar. Just a down-to-earth chick — I don’t have money problems.”
— DFW talent compilation CD: “FLEX” – purchased at BIG T Bazaar
FAILURE really does help:
THINK ABOUT IT:
“If at first you don’t succeed —- How did it feel? Give it some honest thought. Then the call of the next move is yours based on the feeling subsiding and the weight of the lesson learned. ” — Qui.
HOW TO BE HAPPY:
“Decide every morning that you are in a good mood.” — Anonymous (i.e., Life)
WHAT About SEX?
Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power. — Oscar Wilde
“My boyfriend and I live together, which means we don’t have sex—ever. Now that the milk is free, we’ve both become lactose intolerant.”
“WISDOM comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen. No more is needed. Being still, looking, and listening activates the non-conceptual intelligence within you. Let stillness direct your words and actions.” —ECKHART TOLLE, Stillness Speaks
In the end, the overriding factor in whether or not you realize your dreams is going to be you. Not the world. YOU.” – Russell Simmons
Yepper! I’ve hammered out a few more quotes and I hope that you can use them.
Read them, comprehend them, then break them down and use them.
With each line I was informed and humored alike – I really can’t refuse them.
I’m grateful to the #GoodHeads who initially ‘said’ – and the inspiration that did fuel them.
I usually like to add a quote of my own — for a little fizz and spice.
Then I like to throw in a proverb or two and put any bruises on ice:
It’s good to be good and it’s nice to be nice,
Happy M o n d a y to thee — What have you said in your life?
