Reveries Astray

What can I say?  I have a thing for random quotations.

 

“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live.
Never cease to stand like curious children
before the Great Mystery into which we were born.”

- Albert Einstein

“For a guy who so rarely is home,
with such a distorted view of what home is
or might be to start with,
I’m a pretty sickenly happy guy these days.
I tend, I know,
to over romanticize things.”

- Anthony Bourdain

“I knew where I was going- everywhere!  
I wanted to do everything,
go everywhere,
meet everyone,
and I wanted to do it now.  
And to my great pleasure,
it was all happening.”
- David Hatcher Childress

“I know little of God, but all too much of that godly race of beings that some call man.  As gods we are destined to be–so teach the scryers and prophets of religions new and old.  And yet few understand what is required to be a god, much less a true man.
- David Zindell

“I have lived so many lives.
It’s time to find another one.”

- Jack Harkness

“Let us not look back in anger,
or forward in fear,
but around us in awareness.”
- James Thurber

“Home is not a place.
It’s wherever your passion takes you.”
- John Sheridan

“One is the tragedies of life
is the murder
of a beautiful theory
by a brutal gang of facts.”

- Le Rochefoucauld

“I’ve found there is a fine line
to chasing your dreams
and being a bum.  
But along the way
it is always an adventure.”
- Lindsey Stirling

“Well, as for me I got out and I’m on the road.
The worst part is that this,
this could be you.  
And you know it too.”
- Paramore

“This is not a typical map my friend,
with large words that people don’t understand,
like ‘latitudinal’ and ‘east’.”
- Shawn Spencer

“Right.  Onwards.  Upwards.”
- the Tenth Doctor

“I… believe. I believe I haven’t seen everything,
I don’t know. It’s funny, isn’t it?  
The things you make up—the rules
. . .  Still, that’s why I keep travelling.
To be proved wrong.”
- The Tenth Doctor

“And here’s the part
where I started to make
my own damn decisions
and make a name for myself.”
- We Are the In Crowd

“Some men never seem to grow old.
Always active in thought,
always ready to adopt new ideas,
they are never chargeable with foggyism.
Satisfied, yet ever dissatisfied,
settled, yet ever unsettled,
they always enjoy the best of what is,
are the first to find the best of what will be.”
- William Shakespeare
