It’s humorous how much I love quotes. Quoting the quotable has become one of my favourite past times.
I think there’s something so special in the way someone can sum up a complex emotion or thought in a few sentences or words. Where as I rumble and ramble and trip and slip over words so easy to pronounce, so easy to understand. It’s completely embarrassing. But it happens anyway and I don’t feel too sad over it all the time.
But, there is something truly magical about quoting the unquotable. The misfit abandoned in a sea of ignorant slurs and unhealthy dreams. The words, the thoughts and feelings that emerge in small chunks out of those unsubdued mouths surprising ears into a sudden awakening of pure delight.
Those are the quotes that make a real impact. The unexpected quotes. The real magical quotes the sucker punch you in the stomach when you turn around for one second.
As Ralph Marston said:
“If you so choose, even the unexpected setbacks can bring new and positive possibilities. If you so choose, you can find value and fulfillment in every circumstance.”
