Hi! I thought I’d start another of my light hearted threads. Although this is quasi-light hearted with a view to hopefully help and lift people’s spirits along the way.
Please post your favourite inspirational quote (or meme) or a quote (or meme) that you like or think will help others on this forum. I used to collect quotes in my early teens and my first and favourite quote has always been:
Forget your perfect offering,
There is a crack in everything, that is how the light gets in
- Leonard Cohen
I'm such a terrible perfectionist who gets stalled and stuck if I am forced to make do. This quote /song makes my eyes well up. It's inspiring.. but I can't do it either.
My heart has become capable of every form: it is a pasture for gazelles and a
convent for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols and the pilgrim’s Kaaba and the tables of the Torah and
the book of the Qur’an.
I follow the religion of Love: whatever way my Love’s camels take, that is my
religion and my faith.
Ibn ‘Arabi 1165 - 1240 CE
I yam what I yam. Popeye.
I like this quote, nothing and nobody is ‘perfect’. Those who try to pretend that they are perfect irritate me, almost as much as overly judgemental people annoy me which reminds me of another quote that I try to live by:
For me this means simply that none of us are perfect, none of us have never done anything wrong in our lives (even something small), so none of us has the right to pass judgment on another human being.
Thank you for sharing your quote and your own reflections on how it affects you. It shows your humanity and I’m glad that you find it inspiring:-)
What a wonderful medley of different concepts and ideologies merged into one quote! Thank you for sharing:-)
