Have an opinion?
My motto is essentially "All humans are idiots myself included." I look at it in multiple ways. First of all, no one is good at everything and even if someone is considered very intelligent or knowing in one area of life it should not be assumed that this is true in every regard. It reminds that everyone is equal. We are all flawed and will always make mistakes and it must always be realized that the same applies to oneself. If you live with a mindset that everyone has lapses in judgement and makes mistakes and that this fact includes you, it becomes much easier to forgive others since you do not place anyone on too high a pedestal and remain humble in your view of yourself.
Outstanding, as usual.
Lol why thank you :)
Isaac Newton once said, “Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things."And in many ways, it’s true. It’s typical to find a simple general understanding of things when looking at complex behavior from afar. Two seemingly unrelated things may be related if looked at correctly.
“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.” -Anias Nin
You are a very interesting person, Miss Nerms. You often impress me.
thank you, that's very kind of you <3

And also something my mom told me "If you can't say something good about it, keep your mouth shut"
Thanks for MHO! 🙂
Live with a man 40 years. Share his house, his meals. Speak on every subject. Then tie him up, and hold him over the volcano's edge. And on that day, you will finally meet the man.
I love it!
Yeah great quotes - I love all those inspiring quotes look inwards, self belief then to the outside world good will prevail, be kind. Might be paraphrasing a few of these by accident"Fall down 7 times, get up 8 times""Its not how you fall but how you get back up""The darkest hour is before the dawn""A rising tide lifts all boats""Treat others the way you expect to be treated yourself"
Agreed. This one's my fav ""The darkest hour is before the dawn". I often like imagery that includes nature. That's how I write poetry.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.OrHow happy is the blameless vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd”
I know of and like the first one.The second one... I didn't know that was a phrase... "the eteral sunshine of the spotless mind". What is that about? I thought it was made up for the movie. (Great, great movie, by the way.)
Its from Alexander Popes poem Eloisa to Abelard.
I don't know what you're talking about, but I'm already following you, and I think I made the right choice, so carry on...
Here are two; one for my approach to my life, and the other for my approach to other people:- "Why dwell too long on today's defeats when you're going to win in the end".- "Do not make someone a priority when they only see you as an option".
So I tried googling that phrase... "do not make..." but no search results. Is that your phrase? I'd like to use it here in the future when advising some people perhaps.
It's an adaptation of another phrase I came across a while back (and have unfortunately forgotten). Feel free to use it as you wish. I use it in some of the opinions I give here as well.
GAG only allows 5 images :
"This too shall pass"."We are made with the ability to cope and heal".Our heart does heal though it takes time. It is the most powerful organ. It breaks, heals and becomes stronger".
But being this is a.44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world that will blow your head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?

Quando finisce la partita il re ed il pedone finiscono nella stessa scatola.A chi fa male, mai mancano scuse. La sapienza è figliola dell’esperienza-Leonardo Da Vinci ''Without commitment nothing gets done."
That's a lot of words in Italian, for how many it turns into in English, eh?Sounds great. You had me at "quando..."
Lol quando = when
Also it's several quotes I just said the last one in English unless you want it in Italian
Ooooh. Translate all, pls.
When you finish the game, the king and pawn end up in the same box. He who does evil is never short of an excuse. Wisdom is the daughter of experience- Leonardo Da Vinci and another one of my favorites ''O mangiar questa minestra o saltar questa finestra.'' Either eat this soup or jump out the window.
Those are all good!
"We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity; more than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost."Motto - Pick up your cross and bare it.
I love that quote. Who said it? Please credit.
https://youtu.be/w8HdOHrc3OQThe Great Dictator was a political satire, condemning Hitler, Mussolini, the Nazis, and anti-Semitism. It was Chaplin's first full-sound production and was nominated for five Academy Awards.
When you have a break up sleep, eat and work.I add try to have some fun.It comes from korean dramas. Basically just keep going until things get better
Yes, sounds very Asian. Tough bunch, you are. Just don't take it as far as karoshi.

" The devil's biggest trick is to convince the world that he doesn't exist."- The Usual Suspects (although a medieval priest or somebody actually said it first)
Oh, I loooved that line, esp Spacey's delivery of it. Fantastic movie.
“Sometimes I almost pity them. I think I have a freedom they cannot understand. No insult, no blame can touch me. Because I have set myself beyond the pale. I am nothing, I am hardly human any more. I am the French Lieutenant’s Whore.”John Fowles, The French Lieutenant's Woman
Those are pretty good.😊As for me...“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.""In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,But he who restrains his lips is wise.""When pride comes, then comes shame;But with the humble is wisdom."
I live by my own quotes, cause they were reality checks in dark timesDon't say it, but do it.Never be on the defensive.Deep breaths.Don't think, just commit to it.Don't think with your heart.
Dunno about favourite but this should sound familiar... "I never look back, darling. It detracts from the now". -- Edna Mode.
Ooooh I feel a rumblin'. Going to try and hold back on that HMO here for now, I'm veeeery biased for, but can't... hold... much... longer...
To the second, yup.As to a quote of importance."Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent."- Issac Azimov (via Salvor Hardin in Foundation and Empire)
I'm going to quote that violence-incompetent one here one day. Don't feel like getting into a battle today though.
"Get busy living... or get busy dying". From the Shawshank Redemption.
2nd favorite quote from Calvin Coolidge:Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
If you want to shine like the Sun, you have to burn like the Sun.My competition is with no one, I am just trying to be better than I was yesterday.
The best is yet to come... this too will pass.. opinions are like armpits everyone has at least 2 and most of them stink and no one has a problem sharing them

We have exactly 2 things in Common.. 1, You most defiantly love me. 2. I love myself. Some people have to accept the fact they will never have a True partner... because It is always Lonely at the TOP
No better words to describe how precious you are
Recently i like this one..."Everything will be alright in the end, if its not all right, its not the end" Sounds a bit cliche but it always stuck in my head
Your first quote reminds me of a piece of poetry i knew as a boy. StrangeThe world is charged with the gradeur of Godit will flame out, like shining from shook foilit gathers to a greatness like the ooze of oilcrushed. Why do men then now not wreck his rodgenerations have trod, have trod, have trod

"Be confident about everything in your life like Kris Wu is confident in his drawing skills". Kris Wu can't draw to save his life but he always draws so that's saying something. :D
'Treat others how you want to be treated.'It might sound cliche but it makes the most sense to me; you can't go around treating everyone poorly and expect them to like and respect you.
“It Doesn’t Matter Where You Came From. All That Matters Is Where You Are Going.” - Brian TraceyI think its a great quote, it reminds me to not dwell so much on the past and stay focused on my future :D
