I used to have a book when I was growing up full of quotes that inspired me or that I felt had an important meaning (I’ve always been a geek!). I’m not quite sure what happened to that book. It might be in the loft from when we moved house many years back. I have a few inspirational quotes that I like. Notably my favourite is Tennessee Williams:
We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.
It’s a tragic perception of the world, a bit sad really. In that no matter how good and brave you are, we are doomed in some way or another. I interpret it as meaning that everyone has things inside them that are overwhelming and confound them and it’s a reminder that time isn’t unlimited, the sands of time tick on and we are to make the best of what we’ve got. Lets face it, nobody gets out of this world alive. – how deep was that for a Monday morning!
I’m also a fan of Muhammad Ali’s idea of impossible too. [insert picture]
Oh and lets not forget the upper famous ‘Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History’. It’s true, it’s catchy and its fierce! We like it!
I have this quote printed in the front of my journal too.
As for Dutch quotes, lets keep with the program here. I’ve talked about famous Dutch quotes and proverbs before.
Nou breekt mijn klomp still remains a strong favourite.
Rumag.nl also has many Dutch quotes that are so cutsie and sweet. I’ve been known to IG a few of their quotes! They are hilarious!
So there we have it. My favouirte quote(s)
