From Zhilbar on LJ:
Go here and reload until you get five quotes that sum up your philosophy or outlook, then post them.
An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don’t.
Anatole France (1844 – 1924)
When I’m not doing something that comes deeply from me, I get bored. When I get bored I get distracted and when I get distracted, I become depressed. It’s a natural resistance, and it insures your integrity.
Maria Irene Fornes
Forgiveness is the healing of wounds caused by another. You choose to let go of a past wrong and no longer be hurt by it. Forgiveness is a strong move to make, like turning your shoulders sideways to walk quickly on a crowded sidewalk. It’s your move.

Patience has its limits. Take it too far, and it’s cowardice.
George Jackson (1941 – 1971)
I never know how much of what I say is true.
Bette Midler (1945 – )
Edit: Just one more because it’s so appropriate:
I always wanted a happy ending… Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.
Gilda Radner (1946 – 1989)
