So, quote number one is an old favorite:
"Almost all the people who've had most effect on me I seem to have met by chance, yet looking back it seems as though I couldn't but have met them. It's as if they were waiting to be called upon when I needed them."
I love this one because I think we all feel that. The people who I love the most, it seems like I never should have developed a relationship with. It seems like a few tricks of fate led us to be close. Yet, I can't imagine who I would be without them. I wouldn't be me. I would be a different me. And I don't think I would like that me as much.
Quote number two is a new favorite:
"If you feel like telling me I'm a damned fool, don't hesitate. I wouldn't mind in the least."
I love this one because I don't think I let people tell me I'm a damned fool enough. I insist I've got it all figured out when clearly I don't. Who does? I think life would be simpler and happier if I let more people tell me I'm a damned fool.
