WORDS I DIDN’T SAY

Words I Didn’t Say First, but Wish I Had.

~o~

“The world is a thing of utter inordinate complexity and richness and strangeness that is absolutely awesome. I mean the idea that such complexity can arise not only out of such simplicity, but probably absolutely out of nothing, is the most fabulous extraordinary idea. And once you get some kind of inkling of how that might have happened, it’s just wonderful. And … the opportunity to spend 70 or 80 years of your life in such a universe is time well spent as far as I am concerned.” ~ Douglas Adams, as quoted in Richard Dawkins “Eulogy for Douglas Adams”, 2001

“[A] beautiful woman without a mind of her own leaves her lover with no resource after he had physically enjoyed her charms.” ~ Casanova

“For each new morning with its light | For rest and shelter of the night | For health and food, for love and friends | For everything Thy goodness sends.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” ~ Audrey Hepburn

“Yes, a benevolent despot, which is, perhaps, the worst sort, because the hardest to withstand. Where all is being done with the best of intentions… It seems almost monstrous to rebel!” ~ Georgette Heyer, A Civil Contract

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.” ~ C. S. Lewis

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”  ~ Thomas Merton

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.” ~ Anais Nin

“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with love like that. It lights up the sky.”  ~ Rumi

“When you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think.” ~ Robin Williams as John Keating, Dead Poets Society

“At the age of eleven or thereabouts women acquire a poise and an ability to handle difficult situations which a man, if he is lucky, manages to achieve somewhere in the later seventies.” ~ P. G. Wodehouse

“Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she’ll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she’ll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.” ~ Author Unknown
