Getting Personal Quoting Others


The past few days I’ve been disinclined towards blogging. I’ve met such wonderful people through blogging but now that blogging is not my only link to the great minds of the blogging world, I’m somewhat adverse to blogging. In his childhood memoirs, Words, Sartre remarks that each time he writes a book, he feels it’s better than the last then he gets ready to disown it. He claims it to be a familiar experience for all writers. I’m not a writer, too much expectation attached to that one, I prefer language practitioner simply for its bafflement inducing potential. I haven’t thought about my blog as better than anything else I’ve done, I haven’t done enough to make such a comparison, but I am wishing this blog away. I’m writing this in an effort to understand why.

I don’t like using my blog as an angstologist, if I did, I’d be at about two hundred posts already. There, I’m starting to feel better about blogging already.

Don’t flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become. Oliver Wendell Holmes

>Im so glad you’re not leaving. phew, my reading list has grown smaller and I would hate to leave a “daily must read” even if you don’t post everyday

>Awww thank you all for reassuring me of being read no matter the drivel I peddle 😛

I need to clear a misconception my recent aversion to blogging has nothing to do with the blog meet, I enjoyed it. My blehringitis is totally unrelated.

nooj, the george bush look I must see 😛

gauri, that quotation is star-dust magical.

sameerah, I’m not going 😉

>oh byte, it is mythical but also the best feeling ever!
i only hav 4 people that can lay claim to this mythical relationship..

>Oh no you don’t 😐 Come on, we love your posts 😀
I loved your quote, it’s a tad bit sad, isn’t it though? You actually have to shield that person from yourself in some way, a stranger you will no everything about. Ah, I’m babbling as expected, sheesh
I ran into this quote this past week, and I suppose it’s a bit mythical cause like the quote you posted said “more necessary do tact and courtesy”
Anyhow, the quote
Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having never to weigh thoughts or measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take them and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

>i feel the same
post blog meet apathy?
but for my sake, pleeeez don’t go
love your michelin star
your quotes keep my mouth shut for at least 20 seconds while I have this George Bush look on my face, so there’s a reson to keep blogging 🙂
