Five Quotes

A quick little meme I found via Kottke, on Rivers Are Damp:

Go here and look through random quotes until you find five that you think reflect who you are or what you believe.

Here are the five I found:

– “The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.” (Walter Bagehot (1826 – 1877))

– “Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.” (Philip K. Dick (1928 – 1982), Valis)

– “It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.” (Agnes Repplier (1855 – 1950))

– “Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” (Benjamin Franklin (1706 – 1790))

– “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” (Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862))

  1. the quotes you chose are so true…

    you feel really great when you do something people thought you could not do! you feel so powerful…as if you fulfilled some incredible thing!

    It’s easier to go insane than face life and it’s reality…life ain’t that easy to live each day…And make peace with ourselves is quite difficult too…i just hope that it’s possible to be happy thank to others…but maybe in a couple, one is luckier than the other…

    Say the right thing in the right time and keep it shut in the right time too…that is just soooo hard! i usually tend to think after i speak…it’s too late then…and if i think too much…i may just say nothing!
