    Self quotes

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by paperbackwriter, May 6, 2019.

    I quote myself so often on Favorite Quotes I need to have a separate thread.

    Im trying to think of a brilliant brain storm I had 25 minutes ago.
    But it escapes me now. The jury might be out on "brilliant" though.

    If success means having the same personality as him Id rather stick to failure.

    Facts are slippery, but lies stick to everything.

    All pedophiles will burn in Hell.
    Yes im being deliberately provocative. But many of us feel vindicated in saying it.Such is our anger and disgust.

    Love your enemies. Well I have been told I am my own worst enemy. Better to start there I guess.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion even if someone else thinks it is inferior.

    Confusion. That often descibes my state of mind. Not knowing the best course of action. Suspecting I am on the wrong path now. Thinking too much about theologies. Not living in the practical commonsense world.
    Realising that most people in this world lead busy stressful lives and havent got time to pontificate like me.

    How short a day is. It can be agonisingly long if you are in a challenging situation.
    But if all is good it flies.

    By the way, a big thanks to moderators and admin staff at writingforums.org.
    Allowing me to express myself like this really is the best free therapy I coul ask for. If I was flush with money Id donate for sure.

    Im listening to a guy called Thomas Keating. In essence his topic is Buddhist influenced Christian meditaton. But his style of talking is disappointing. He sounds like a flakey intellectual who has smoked too much marijuana. Am I too critical?

    If I had a nickel for every time I had to tell someone to stop using their head as a doorstop, I could buy a lot of doorstops.

    Sometimes I feel drawn to the tragic archetype figure that JP warns about. For instance I feel a need to state an opinion that is not mainstream even I havent done the research. I just feel empathy for the people who would hold such an opinion. So its more about that group than the actual opinion.
    I might feel sorry for Trumps base for example ......
