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
This is good. Like there’s no point waiting for the world to change, you have to start with changing yourself to be/do whatever it is that you want to see being done better in the world?
This is a refreshing change from seeing people of one faith constantly taunting and writing hate about people of another faith, or no faith.
Definitely! Mutual understanding is far better!
There seem to be a lot of pictures here, so I thought this might be OK to try to Post. I took this from a foreign language Internet Post. I like a lot what it says, but I have no idea if this quote was ever said in this Cartoon (Dragonball).
Hi! Yes completely fine to post pictures/memes etc on here. Good quote!
The beatings will continue until morale improves.
"If you're going through hell... keep going" - attributed to Winston Churchill but probably incorrectly
"This too, shall pass" - Persian adage see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_too_shall_pass for me this means "When times are tough, it won't last - so don't fret. When times are good, it won't last - make the most of it"
"Perdurabo" (Latin) it means "I will endure to the end" and was the 'magical motto' of Aleister Crowley. This is my personal motto (I got it tattooed on my arm in 2016 after a particularly rough 4 years) and depending on where you put the stress it's a statement of fact, a promise, a threat, an inspiration... the tattoo is visible at a glance if I'm wearing short-sleeves and when I got it done it felt like it was something that had been there for years and the tattooist was revealing it, rather than it being something that was being 'added to me'...
I like ‘this too, shall pass’. Better to just get on with life I guess as you never know when things will change. I’m glad that you’re happy with the tattoo that you got done. I got 3 tattoos in my teens but regretted them all by the time I hit 20.
