Sometimes We Have…
“Sometimes we have thoughts that even we don’t understand. Thoughts that aren’t even true—that aren’t really how we feel—but they’re running through our heads anyway because they’re interesting to think about.
If you could hear other people’s thoughts, you’d overhear things that are true as well as things that are completely random. And you wouldn’t know one from the other. It’d drive you insane. What’s true? What’s not? A million ideas, but what do they mean?” ―Jay Asher
“Religion is like language or dress. We gravitate toward the practices with which we were raised. In the end, though, we are all proclaiming the same thing. That life has meaning. That we are grateful for the power that created us.” ―Dan Brown, Angels & Demons
“If I live in a world that has no meaning beyond my own biography, my own personal pains and joys, I will experience an emptiness that always threatens to render even my most joyous moments ‘meaningless’. Only through participation in a universe whose ultimate meaning is larger than my own life and life span can this psycho-spiritual problem be resolved.” -Jeremy Taylor, “Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill”
This is such an amazing quote. Unfortunately for now it takes the place of my original post which is incomplete as I care for my sick macaroon. She’s had a hard day and I still have to give her subcutaneous fluids. Hopefully that will make her feel better because she’s scaring me with her bizarre behavior.
