Interesting Potpourri!

Life is discovery!

Stuff that makes me wonder, laugh, shake my head ruefully, giggle, moon, drool, whatever. So why not share, after all sharing is caring!

Articles that made me go waaaat?

March 3, 2014 – A great line from a movie that I love, “Up Close & Personal” where Robert Redford tells Michelle Pfeiffer:
Warren Justice: Every day we have is one more than we deserve.

March 12, 2014 – Eckhart Tolle’s amazing quotes:

“The past has no power over the present moment.”

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

April 8, 2014 – JakeShimabukuro. Tell me you don’t find this truly entrancing, goose bumping and magical and I’ll eat my hat (nope I don’t wear one, except imaginary ones, so I’ll eat an imaginary hat).

May 11,2014 – Bridges of Madison County – Dialogues, nay, truths that moved me. I hope they do the same for you as well.

Francesca: Robert, please. You don’t understand, no-one does. When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children; in one way her life begins but in another way it stops. You build a life of details. You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move. And when they leave they take your life of details with them. And then you’re expected move again only you don’t remember what moves you because no-one has asked in so long. Not even yourself. You never in your life think that love like this can happen to you.

Robert Kincaid: But now that you have it…

Francesca: I want to keep it forever. I want to love you the way I do now the rest of my life. Don’t you understand… we’ll lose it if we leave. I can’t make an entire life disappear to start a new one. All I can do is try to hold onto to both. Help me. Help me not lose loving you.

Robert Kincaid: Things change. They always do, it’s one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of change, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort.

“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.” 
― Robert James WallerThe Bridges of Madison County
“The road is a strange place. Shuffling along, I looked up and you were there walking across the grass toward my truck on an August day. In retrospect, it seems inevitable – it could not have been any other way– a case of what I call the high probability of the improbable” 
― Robert James WallerThe Bridges of Madison County
