Sometimes I just can’t find the words. Or put together the words. That’s when the words of others help.

I’ve collected quotes since I was in high school. I’d like to share some with you.

From THE ANGEL’S GAME, Carlos Ruiz Zafón. This is sooooo beautiful.

  •  “Everything is a tale. What we believe, what we know. What we remember, even what we dream. Everything is a story, a narrative, a sequence of events with characters communicating an emotional content. We only accept as true what can be narrated.”

And how about this one from Marianne Williamson.

  • “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

Do you have a favorite quotation?
