To remedy that a little and also to infuse my journal with something everyone can get something out of (regardless of whether you're a friend or not) I've decided to start posting quotes. They are not here just to read and move on, but that is certainly an option. When I post them you are welcome and encouraged to post comments with any of the following:
- What it means to you
- How you apply it to your life (or why you don't) or why you admire or disdain other that do
- Support for it or refute it
- Debate with others (friendly please, no flaming) who post their point of view
And in the spirit of encouraging comments I am starting with a quote that could be controversial. Not all of them in the future will be. But here is the very first:
"To say that you can love one person all your life is just like saying that one candle will continue burning as long as you live."
