Oscar Wilde keeps popping up and of course he was a master of quotations. Here are two that I really like.

 

"I can resist anything except temptation."

 

"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken."

 

Maybe not inspirational but very memorable.

This is such a powerful quote for me, especially when I look back at all the teachers I have had :)

I think people need some inspirational Quotes this week, so let's start:

 

Here's some from noted author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who passed away this year in July 2 2016:

 

"For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile."

 

"Hope is like peace. It is not a gift from God. It is a gift only we can give one another."

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…”

― Timothy Leary

Do unto others...

 

"I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."

Quaker Missionary

The best thing to give to your

enemy is forgiveness; to an

opponent, tolerance; to a

friend, your heart; to your

child, a good example; to a

father, deference; to your

mother, conduct that will make

her proud of you; to yourself,

respect; to all men, charity.

      One of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite sources. The world needs more Oscar Wilde.
    • By LJH
      From Roommates

       

      “You can’t ask a man for his number when he’s passing around the meat,” he said then winked, “you have to wait until he’s passing out the chocolate.”
      “Why did I become friends with you?”  I asked rolling my eyes.   “To get your head out of your fucking ass, Will."
      “I’m meeting billionaires in a few fucking hours,” he said turning to look at me, “I’ll be lucky if I don’t shit my pants.”
      "I don't feel as free as you do."
      "If you're unwilling to fix this, then you're just a damn distraction."
      "It would have rocked living here," Brett commented. "I'd slide down the stair railing at least five times a day."
      “Relationships aren’t ruined by spilled milk,” I said and she smiled.
      “Now Lucinda, I don’t want to look at our portrait and see sweat or flushed looks, we want to look humble, refreshed, and above all happy.”
      “You can leave clothes on the ground they won’t walk away,” he said laughing slightly.
      “Well maybe you’ll meet someone at the anniversary party,” she said, “I’ve invited all of your sister’s classmates for a reason.”  - “Oh, I thought it was so Kathryn could shove her new boobs into their faces.”
      “Well breakfasts should have more live shows,” Brett said leaning back in his chair and stretching.

      Rules:
      No googling No wiki Author and book must be answered before moving on.   The person who answers the question/s correctly must pose the next question. The poster can ask an additional question for 1 point only. Only three clues allowed. If no winner after third clue, the poster must give answer and proceed to next question. 6 points per correct answer. 1st clue answer = 5 points. 2nd Clue answer = 3 points. 3rd Clue answer = 1 point. If no answer after 1 week = 5 days then post answer and another question. Posters of questions earn 3 points per question. If the question is unanswered, the poster of that question scores an extra 3 points. Please keep a tally of your own points. All points are to be reflected in each post. See my example below. Definition of classics: a book considered as being exemplary or noteworthy for its literary value as listed by foreign and Western canons or thru a reader's own opinion. You may quote foreign classics translated into English. i.e., The Unbearable Lightness of Being etc.  There are hundreds. You may quote any novel awarded  with a prize, Nobel Prize etc. There are numerous other prizes that you can mention as a further question or in a clue. You may quote modern classics. i.e, Hemingway, Faulkner, Knowles, Hollinghurst, Edmund White, Kramer and so forth, there are hundreds.   You may quote Children's Classics.  All genres are allowed.  
      I will start off hehehe:

      "No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart."
      Author and book please.
      Additional question for 1 point: In which year did the author die?
