Favorite Quotes pt. I

(Photo credit unknown)

I like quotes. I especially like quotes that match up with what's going on in my life in the moment. They are a mirror into my thoughts and feelings, and they precisely express what I know, feel, believe, imagine, hope, think, or what I have experienced. I thought I'd share a few: 

1. "I cannot fathom how tall your trees could grow if you stopped chopping the tops in fear of someone else cutting you down." -Tyler Knott Gregson 

2. "Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray." -Rumi 

3. "I myself am opaque, for some reason. Their eyes cannot see me. Yes, that's it: The world is autistic with respect to me." -Anne Nesbet

4. "Every single day I look up and wonder what it feels like to have wings. Every single day the bird looks down and smiles." -Tyler Knott Gregson

5. "People empty me. I have to get away to refill." -Charles Bukowski 

6. "Some days, to the world, I feel like the fake drawers on bathroom cabinets or the false pockets on a suit's vest; a reasonable addition that looks like it belongs, but what purpose will I ever serve? Some days, to the world, I feel like a thunderstorm with too little thunder and too much rain and no fathomable idea what to do with all the lightning growing inside me. Some days, to the world, I feel like a book with no cover and a title page that is torn; I am filled with words but only those that care to read will ever understand what I am about." -Tyler Knott Gregson

7. "Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away." -George Eliot

8. "Whatever you are looking for in life is looking for you too." -Saul Williams 

9. "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." -Loe Tolstoy
