Quotation Saturday


“All extremes of feeling are allied with madness.”
~ Virginia Woolf

“I think you can love a person too much. You put someone up on a pedestal, and all of a sudden, from that perspective, you notice what's wrong - a hair out of place, a run in a stocking, a broken bone. You spend all your time and energy making it right, and all the while, you are falling apart yourself. You don't even realize what you look like, how far you've deteriorated, because you only have eyes for someone else.”
~ Jodi Picoult

“I love you so much that nothing can matter to me - not even you...Only my love- not your answer. Not even your indifference”
~ Ayn Rand

“I don't possess these thoughts I have --- they possess me. I don't possess these feelings I have --- They obsess me.”
~ Ashly Lorenzana


“Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.”
~ Edgar Allan Poe

“Sweet, crazy conversations full of half sentences, daydreams and misunderstandings more thrilling than understanding could ever be.”
~ Toni Morrison, Beloved

“THE EDGE, there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”
~ Hunter S. Thompson

“I'll take crazy over stupid any day.”
~ Joss Whedon


“Why let something build up inside of you only to hurt you more? Release the truth, release the feeling.”
~ Heather Romiti Health Wellness Coach Motivational Speaker

“If we can just let go and trust that things will work out they way they're supposed to, without trying to control the outcome, then we can begin to enjoy the moment more fully. The joy of the freedom it brings becomes more pleasurable than the experience itself.”
~ Goldie Hawn

“Secrets press inside a person. They press the way water presses at a dam. The secrets and the water, they both want to get out.”
~ Franny Billingsley

“Try to forgive by trying to understand how it would feel to be in the other’s shoes. If someone hurts you – ask them - “What hurts you so much that you would do this?” Listen to the answer and try to understand what is valid for them. They may have been fighting for your attention, but no one thinks of themselves as attackers, only defenders! So don’t judge their ways, only set them free by giving them a chance to speak. You may both learn a lot from your kindness and courage in asking for the truth. But even if nothing changes, release it, remember that you both have a right to be who you choose to be. When we make judgements we're inevitably acting on limited knowledge, so ask if you seek to understand, or simply let them be!”
~ Jay Woodman
