5 favourite quotes of the week (11/52)

1. You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that. -BIANCA SPARACINO

2. Life isn’t happening to you. Life is responding to you. -RHONDA BRYNE

3. If you ever want your soul to dance in the clouds, you will at some point have to juggle lightening and taste the thunder. -CHRISTOPHER POINDEXTER 

4. Beyond the edge of the world, there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard. -HARUKI MURAKAMI 

5. And all the colours I am inside have not been invented yet. -SHEL SILVERSTEIN

  1. It’s hard to pick a favourite from these five quotes because they’re all so good. I could narrow it down to the last three, but the first one says so much that can be pondered upon. You chose these well! 🙂

  2. Referring to 1:
    Sometimes I express my good feelings on the spot. That sometimes irritates people, because they are not used to it. Mabye they think: Ist the guy trunk? I don’t care about. Let people think what they want to. I think in Cologne People are different than in Franconia. In Franconia it’s a bit strange to be open-hearted.

    1. I don’t think it’s strange to be open-hearted. I think it’s the most beautiful thing to be. It means you are expressive of your feelings and emotions. And what’s the point of feeling something beautiful if you are unable to express it? It may irritate a few people, but the one who truly matter will appreciate it. I think it’s important to be true to ourselves while we’re living this wonderful life, irrespective of what opinions people may form of our being. As long as we’re happy and are able to pass the happiness on to others, all is well and sorted. You are doing a great job expressing your good feelings on the spot. I think it takes courage. Most people can’t do that!✨🌺
