Contemplation

Recently, I did a mini-quote series on facebook. I gathered a number of quotes that I have found relevant to the past several years of my life and posted them throughout the weekend. I recieved interesting responses from my friends, so I thought I would post the quotes here:

On Character

“The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.”
-Thomas Babington Macaulay.

On Disrespect

“And as soon as you disrespect and blame another person, you give them your power and become a victim of them. You close back down and rejoin the human condition where you believe the world out there is coming at you to make things miserable for no good reason.”
-Rennie Davis quotes

On Maturity

“A mature person is one who is does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

On Love

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
-Anais Nin

On Betrayal

“Betrayal is the only truth that sticks.”
-Arthur Miller

And finally….On Peace

“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it”
-Anon
