Friday Quotables

From Anton Chekhov:

"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."

*****

By Charles Peguy:

"A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket."


******

From Agent Rachelle Gardener (and go read the rest):

"Believe you've been given this passion for a reason. Understand that you have to work to bring it to fruition - but you've also been given the energy and enthusiasm and time you need to make it happen."

"I believe it for you. But you've got to believe it too. God gave you something powerful - a story or a message, and the desire to share it. God is not in the business of tricking people, or of squandering anything - not talent, not passion, not time. Pursue your God-given passions with an unwavering faith. Praise and bless the obstacles. And keep believing."


*****

From Glee ( Finn talking to Mr. Schue's ex-wife, Terri):


"You could be a total MILF if it wasn't for the whole faking-being-a-mother thing."


*****

From my five-year-old son:

"Mom, the twin girls in my class are trying to kiss me and marry me at recess. But I was tricky. I told them I'd marry them in college (HUH?!?!). They'd NEVER find me there. I heard that place is HUGE!"

*****


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYBODY!

I'd be lying if I didn't say that the Glee quote took the cake for me!! That one made me laugh out loud when I first saw it, and then again reading it!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Okay, my favorite is from your five year old. That's too funny!

Maddy said...

Oh my goodness!! Your kid is so adorable (and smart!). College is the perfect place to lose old loves ;o)


"Believe you've been given this passion for a reason..."

Now this quote is something special! To answer your question, I have thought about doing the photo thing as a side gig, but this quote sums it up! There's still a lot of work to be done :)

Have a great weekend!!!

Matthew Rush said...

Excellent quotes. Of course the best one is from your kid but the others are almost as wonderful.

LisaDay said...

The quote from your son is the best. Good for him. There is one way to get your kid to go to college, escape from the girls.

Yes, the five-year-old's quote is wonderful. I hope you remember that so you can remind him when he's about 17.

Sharlene T. said...

Your son is too clever -- OR, is he suggesting that they could look for him all over in college but they wouldn't find him because he wouldn't be there!?!? Huh... Wonderful quotes. Thanks for sharing.

Pamela said...

The second one is my "almost" favorite. You son.... How do you keep up with this cutie pie? I love his cleverness!

Yesterday at dinner, my 11 year old complimented one of us and then he said, "Man, I am so charming!"

K. M. Walton said...

1. Your son sounds like he makes you smile and laugh on a daily basis.

2. That Rachelle Gardener quote gave me chills. I don't mean that figuratively, I mean literal chills. I was meant to read that quote...today. (I'm taking it as some of your sparkle dust at work :)
