I was just looking for some good quotes, they can be about anything. I really enjoy the ones i've read in allaboutcounseling and i just wanted to see if anyone had any others they would like to share. I have a book of poems and i'd like to have a bunch of quotes to put into it as an introduction type of page.
Thank you very much

christina, I love quotes too, and here is my all-time favorite: "Only that day dawns to which we are awake." -Henry David Thoreau. Second favorite is "Hitch your wagon to a star." -Ralph Waldo Emerson. Smile 🙂

these arent quotes but just ideas, they're common sense, and very simple like duh, maybe just rewording of old sayings.
i was lying down in bed feeling miserable when i was thinking that: life begins by finding hapiness within ourself. everyone has an idea of what happiness is. there is a deep reason in everyone of us, that what we think our hapiness is. we can eaither have the idea in us that our happiness is something we have to get from some external thing. but we have to realize that life STARTS with being happy in ourselves. If u cant be happy in urself, then .... u're basically nowwhere.
so being happy is the starting point and maybe the eneding point too, in ,life.

i know mu parents, both of them, seem to think that happiness is when (like u've probably seen somewhere) ur children get married, when their children have children and THEIR children get married, when their son gets a good job etc.etc.etc.
its a never-ending thing, with the result that u're hapiness is always depending on something that has yet to happen.

again, all of this is so easy to say but so hard to actually achieve.
its like saying that to climb mount everest we must be strong.
easier said than done.

hmmm.. what else maybe i will focus on climbing.
tez and many others said to me that first i have to want happiness badly.
i must really WANT to get better.
i must really WANT to climb mount everest.
but how do i want it??
i dont know.. maybe im just feeling kind of aweful right now.

we must be happy in ourselves.
we have to learn that the happiness we are seeking is not outside, but it comes from insides us.
u can be a trash picker and happy with your life.
or u can a CEO and be unhappy with life. the hapiness comes from inside, not from money or external things.
u can have a beautiful/handsome spouse and be unhappy with ur life.
u can have pretty kids who come first in school, and still be unhappy.
u can have a Mercedes and still be unhappy.
u can have a donkey cart and still be happy.

the happiness comes from inside you, not outside.

but alas so easy to say! :((

maybe the more i realize and beleive that happiness will come from inside me and not outside, is a step towards happiness and peace. i really dont know.

what else.
yea... if u put too much salt during cooking food, u can use pototoes to soak up the extra salt.

:((((( life is tough.
happiness happiness.. hmmmmm
what to do ???

Sometimes I feel I have nothing inside where happiness can be born, and don't know how to be happy in myself. Instead I'm trying to change the way how I perceive things happening/happened outside and relate them to myself, it's not easy either, though.

This is a bit different from the quotes everyone posted here, but I liked it a lot;
...Yet who will save me from myself if they can't? I can't certainly, yet I tell myself it all seems like fun and will work out in the end. I expect I will be asked a question I can answer and then be handed a big prize. They're working on it. (John Ashbery)

I found this hilarious....

A Woman's Random Thoughts......

If you love something ..set it free
And if it comes back to you it is yours to keep
But if is does not return then it was ot yours to start with....

BUT

If it sits in your living room messes things up, eats all your food, leaves dirty clothes all over, watches T.V. and does not realize it was set free...

Then you either married it or gave birth to it...

Just a chuckle from the local video store lady
