Thoughtful Quotes

If a man examine carefully his thoughts he will be surprised to find how much he lives in the future. His well-being is always ahead.
Emerson, Journals, 1827
No yesterdays are ever wasted for those who give themselves to today.
Brendan Francis

The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.
Lao-tzu
It isn't always easy to distinguish right from wrong, is it? More often the choice is between better and worse...and sometimes...sometimes the line between them is as thin as a hair. One must make a choice, though. One can't wash one's hands and let others take the risks...including the risk of being wrong.
He Shall Thunder In The Sky, Elizabeth Peters
...Nature is not cruel, only pitilessly indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous - indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.
Richard Dawkins ~ River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life
The love you can't have lasts the longest, feels the strongest & hurts the most
Yulia
You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace.
Hoppy O'Halloran, Angela's Ashes
The more you study, the more you know. The more you know, the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know. So why study?
Student under stress
What gives you the audacity to look in the mirror and think tha you are the only thing....on this planet or othterwise.
Carl Edwin Robinson
There is no reason to fear the dark, you should only fear what it hides.
Silent Hill
If you want your dreams to come true, don't sleep.
Yiddish proverb
When everything you've been told is a lie nothing hurts more than the truth.
Working designs
Any man can be broken... by a strength outside greater than himself or a weakness inside which he cannot understand.
Caine
Life is to short to drink bad wine.
To touch someones heart with your hand is a feeling, to feel someones heart without touch is an inspiration.
Renae King
"Quarter-life Crisis"

It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are a lot of things about yourself that you didn't know and may or may not like.

You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.

You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones.

What you do not realize is that they are realizing that too and are not really cold or catty or mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.

You look at your job. It is not even close to what you thought you would be doing or maybe you are looking for one and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and are scared.

You miss the comforts of college, of groups, of socializing with the same people on a constant basis. But then you realize that maybe they weren't so great after all.

You are insecure and then secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life; You feel alone and scared and confused; Suddenly change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.

You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you or you lay in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough to get to know better; All this while you had been convincing yourself that you didn't want to be tied down to any person; Now suddenly you have moments of self-doubt when you wonder if you waited too long and let someone special get away. You love someone but maybe love someone else too, and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you are not a bad person! Random hook ups start to look cheap and getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic;

You want to be independent but suddenly, the idea of having the stability of a special someone to trust and lean on doesn't seem all that bad. You want to be your own person and yet be taken care of at the same time.

You go through the same emotions and questions over and over and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision.

You worry about loans and money and the future and making a life for yourself and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender.

We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out.

The world of today is that of heartbreak. The thing that defines you as an individual is how you put the pieces back together tomorrow.
