Getting Personal Quoting Others

‘The longer we live the more we think and the higher the value we put on friendship and tenderness towards parents and friends.’ Samuel Johnson

We all have our moments of madness. I venture out, guided only by my capacity to get into too many situations. I enjoy solitude, my own space- what Virginia Woolf termed a ‘room of one’s own’, but how wonderful to emerge from the depths of my inner self to the smiles of my father. There is something humbling in the love of family, something that rises you to lofty heights but keeps you grounded all the same. May it always be so.

I’m using too many Samuel Johnson quotables.

>That quotation is so true. I guess it’s all the experiences we go through that make us see things differently and appreciate people more. Or maybe we’re just grown up – God, I feel old. Very nice post 🙂

>The feeling of being loved and cared for, is the only feeling worth having.

Wether it be from our families or that “SO”

but nothing beats the warm and fuzzy feelings

“It is these that shall find their fulfilment in the hereafter gardens of perpetual bliss, which they shall enter together with the righteous from among their parents, their spouses, and their offspring; and the angels will come unto them from every gate [and will say]: Peace be upon you, because you have persevered!” How excellent, then, this fulfilment in the hereafter!”
