What they said

Posted by Yacoob on July 11, 2007

These are some quotes I’ve enjoyed over the last few years. Some are credited to the person who said it, and I don’t know about the others. If you do, let me know please:

On Love

“Love is not about looking into each other’s eyes, but about looking together in the same direction.”

“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along….”
-Rumi

On Life

“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.”
- Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

“Adversity has ever been considered the state in which a man most easily becomes acquainted with himself.”
- Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

“Do not commit the error, common among the young, of assuming that if you cannot save the whole of mankind, you have failed.”
-Jan de Hartog, playwright and novelist (1914-2002)

“Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.”
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

On Happy Gas

“A day without sunshine is like…Night.”

“On the other hand, you have different fingers.”

“42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.”

“I feel like I’m diagonally parked in a Parallel Universe.”

“The Early Bird may get the worm, but the Second Mouse gets the cheese.”

“If you’re being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They’re trained for that.”


PS: This will be my last post for a while, as I’ll be on holiday and back only in September, insha-Allah. Hope everyone has a happy August :)
