Inspirational Quotes part 3


I have found one of my book of quotes! I have several notebooks, all about the place. The quotes in this one range from thought-provoking to humorous to down right strange! Here are a few…

I’ve learnt that not all poetry lends itself to music – some thoughts need to be sung only against the silence – Jewel

It’s always okay in the end, if it’s not okay, it’s not the end. – Unknown

Being Australian I find this one quite funny: 

Don’t worry about tomorrow being the end of the world. It’s already tomorrow in Australia – Charles Shultz

And I seem to have a few on reality:

Ignore reality – there’s nothing you can do about it – Natalie Imbruglia

Reality is merely an illusion. Albeit a very persistent one. – Albert Einstein

Reality is a guess made by the mind based on information imparted by the senses. – Alice Borchardt (from one of her books I think, though I have not recorded which one…)

And this is along similar lines:

There’s no life I know that’s like pure and simple imagination. Living there, you’ll be free, if you truly wish to be. – Willy Wonka (from the original movie on Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory)

I have two more from the movie(and possibly from the book by Roald Dahl? Haven’t had a chance to check!)

A little nonsense now and then, relished by the wisest men! – Willy Wonka

We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams. – Willy Wonka (I love this one!)

I love this next quote!

Don’t go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I was annoyed at how poorly reading prepares one for real life. One comes to expect things to occur and then they do not. _ Murasaki (from The Tale of Murasaki by Liza Dalby)

Stories have power. They are a trail to knowledge… they free you to know more than you think you do. – from People of the Earth by W Michael Gear and Kathleen O’Neal Gear

We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing. – George Bernard Shaw

There are so many more! Looks like I’ll be having a 4th installment of Quotes sometime soon! 🙂
