I Love a Good Quote

I love when I run across a mean­ing­ful quote.  I love the feel­ing I get when I read some­thing that res­onates with my sit­u­a­tion, where I am, or some­thing I’m expe­ri­enc­ing.  I also enjoy being able to pass along a quote to some­one else and hope­ful­ly help them obtain a new per­spec­tive or gain strength from it.

Some quotes I’ve seen late­ly that I’ve real­ly enjoyed are:

The most beau­ti­ful peo­ple we have known are those who have known defeat, known suf­fer­ing, known strug­gle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These per­sons have an appre­ci­a­tion, a sen­si­tiv­i­ty, and an under­stand­ing of life that fills them with com­pas­sion, gen­tle­ness, and a deep lov­ing con­cern. Beau­ti­ful peo­ple do not just hap­pen.”

- Eliz­a­beth Kubler Ross


When peo­ple walk away from you, let them go, your des­tiny is nev­er tied to any­one who leaves you, and it doesn’t mean they are bad peo­ple. It just means that their part in your sto­ry is over.”

(I wasn’t able to find this as a direct quote, but from what I found, it seems it comes at least in part from T.D. Jakes.)


Whether it is a 14 minute mile or a 7 minute mile, it is still a mile.”


We see main­ly what we look for.”

-John Lub­bock
