"Quotation"

group profile | members | imagewall | quotation maps

We bloggers like a good quote, don't we?

This group is for your favourite quotations, and i'm not just talking about things you read in Bartlett's. It could be an inspirational excerpt from an ancient text; a memorable line from a movie; advice an old school teacher gave that stuck with you. It can even be something you overheard at the bus stop this morning.

Add a poignant photo to accompany your quote.

If you tag the posts, perhaps we can build up a searchable bank of our own favourite words, phrases, quotations...

You get the picture. Join the group and get quoting. You can quote me on that.

No Limit

(viewed 649 times)
*Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. Love still stands when all else has fallen.*

I don't like not being able to credit the writer but I have no idea who wrote this.

No feeling is final...

(viewed 2091 times)
"Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final"


— Rainer Maria Rilke

There's a message in here for those who are homeward bound.... <3

I am particularly liking the line *no feeling is final*.

Your Children

(viewed 616 times)
*Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.*

Kahlil Gibran

After Awhile

(viewed 874 times)
“After awhile you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love doesn't mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises.
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open.
With the grace of maturity, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on
Today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong
And that you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn and learn ....
With every goodbye you learn.”

Boats

"The boat is safer anchored at the port; but that's not the aim of boats."

Paulo Coelho

The Pilgrimage.

I took this picture at Arundel West Sussex yesterday afternoon. This is how it was, I haven't fiddled with it at all. In fact I resisted cropping it because there's a duck at the bottom left.

Minute by Minute

Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the 1000 small uncaring ways.

Photography records

(viewed 583 times)
"Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face; the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited; and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man." - Edward Steichen.

As I was going

(viewed 2610 times)
"As I was going up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
I wish, I wish, he'd stay away
."
