Interesting

More random things about me. I am a huge LOVER of quotes...the ones that are just shy of saying, "Dear Katie..." they literally have my name written all over it. I even keep a document on my computer of quotes I run across and know I will need to read again some other day. For example: a previous post.

I subscribe to quite a few blogs and a few of them are the sappy kind. Yes, I'm a total romantic at heart. So this gal wrote a post on relationships followed with a ton of quotes...oh, it made my heart go pitter patter. There's only one I will force the 3 of you to read.

“However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the "right" person, because he or she is the mirror of who you are inside.” - Deepak Chopra

Man, this one hit me square between the eyes. I like it. It makes me stop and rethink a few of my previous relationships and remind myself who I was during those times. I'm happy to say I'm not the same woman I was back then. I'll always be a work in progress but it's always good to have some checkpoints and see I'm moving in the right direction.

i love quotes, too, although the ones that tickle my fancy aren't quite as romantic:

"there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics." - disraeli

"the man who reads nothing is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers." - jefferson

"write a wise saying and your name will live forever." - anon

I like the demotivational:

"The common element in all of your disfunctional relationships is you."

Katie, you and I are very similar. And that quote also hits me square between the eyes. It's painful to realize that the bad relationships are a reflection of ourselves, but once we face that, we can move on. Miss you!

I LOVE quotes too! I have them all over my website.... www.juliawolffe.com if ya ever wanna look. I've always loved the one on Priscilla's blog and I have had these taped to my mirror in times of strife:

"I am not afraid of storms for I am learning to sail my ship."

and

"I believe that my life is gonna see the love I give return to me."
