I thought it might be fun to have a Wall(or thread) of our own yet with inspirational or funny quotes!

This is one of my favorites

"We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love"

- Dr Seuss

Oh Elisabeth I cannot stop laughing, that is so good! You are such a JOY to find these things !!

So let's calculate that if the IQ of John Wall is 176, the statistical probability to find a compatible weirdo is about 1:1 million. If the IQ = 186 the probability is 1:26 million. If IQ =196 there is only 1 weirdo in 1 billion compatible with John.

So Good News is that there is one weirdo for him for sure.
Bad News is that it may take (and has taken) some time to find her.

Needle in the haystack? Piece of cake!

Thank you Elisabeth! I really appreciate that :))

Particularly during the times when my 'radical honesty' may make some other people uncomfortable ;)

Enjoy the beautiful weekend!

Just a couple of more quotes for John Smart Wall -Wall:

"Any woman who is sure of her own wits, is a perfect match, at any time, for a man who is not sure of his own temper".
(by Wilkie Collins,'The Woman in White')

"Lively, intelligent and quite immature,[she] usually bursts out with exactly the comment that summoned up the situation, and therefore could never be in politeness be said".
(Clare B. Dunkle,'The Hollow Kingdom')

I love these two!!!
I am sure John Wall would agree, once he has stopped sulking.

My concert this week was again"Mostly Mozart Festival"s at the Lincoln Center, including, among others, the famous "Jupiter" symphony (Mozart Symphony no 41 in C major K.551). This, in this warm and lovely evening in New York, reminded me of the following poem regarding Jupiter:

On the Beach at Night
(by Walt Whitman "Leaves of Grass" publ. by David McKay, 1900)

1.
On the beach at night, stands a child, with her father
Watching the east, the autumn sky.
Up through the darkness,
While ravening clouds, the burial clouds, in black masses spreading,
Lower, sullen and fast, athwart and down the sky,
Amid a transparent clear belt of ether yet left in the east,
Ascends, large and calm, the lord-star Jupiter.
And nigh at hand, only a very little above,
Swim the delicate brothers the Pleiades.

2.
From the beach, the child, holding the hand of her father,
Those burial-clouds that lower, victorious, soon to devour all,
Watching, silently weeps.
Weep not, child,
Weep not my darling,
With these kisses let me remove your tears,
The ravening clouds shall not long be victorious,
They shall not possess the sky - shall devour the stars only in apparition,
Jupiter shall emerge - be patient-
watch again another night- the Pleiades shall emerge,
They are immortal - all those stars,
both silvery and golden, shall shine out again,
The great stars and the little ones shall shine out again - they endure,
The vast immortal suns, and the long-enduring moons, shall again shine.

3.
Then, dearest child,
Mournest thou only for Jupiter?
Considerest thou alone the burial of the stars?
Something there is.
With my lips soothing thee, adding, I whisper
I give thee the first suggestion, the problem and indirection,
Something there is more immortal even than the stars,
Many the burials, many the days and nights, passing away,
Something that shall endure longer even than lustrous Jupiter,
Longer than Sun, or any revolving satellite,
Or the radiant brothers, the Pleiades.

....

The wonderful Conductor tonight was Mr Andrew Manze, who has "rapidly emerged as one of the most stimulating and inspirational conductors of his generation. As a guest conductor, he has regular relationships with a number of leading international orchestras, including Munich Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Royal Stockhom Philharmonic, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Halle', Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and the Mahler, Scottish and Swedish chamber orchestras. Mr Manze has been a principal conductor and artistic director of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra in Sweden since 2006."

Wonderful quotes, thank you so much! I am going to write these down and put them on my WALLS. I have been working on TRUST recently:

"All the world is made of Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust" / J.M. Barrie,'Peter Pan'

"The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them"./ Ernest Hemingway

"Friendship - my definition - is build on two things. Respect and trust. Both elements have to be there. And it has to be mutual. You van have respect for someone, but if you don't have trust, the friendship will crumble" / Stieg Larsson, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'(Mikael Blomqvist).

"Because you believed that I was capable of behaving decently, I did"./ Paulo Coelho, "The Devil and Miss Prym".

"It is more shameful to distrust your friends than to be deceived by them" / Confucius

"Trust in someone means we no longer have to protect ourselves. We believe we will not be hurt or harmed by the other, at least not deliberately. We trust his or her good intentions, though we know we might be hurt by the way circumstances play out between us". David Richo

"In this world there is nothing more scary than trusting someone. But there is also nothing more rewarding". Brad Meltzer, "The Inner Circle".

Perhaps not a question for a public board (and please pass on this post if it makes you uncomfortable Free Breeze, I won't take it personally)

How are you working on TRUST?... Just curious, I have TRUST issues too, I have started by not having expectations, they usually end up in resentments. So I simply refuse to have resentments.

Oh I am just in the beginning - complete novice - just starting to read about the subject matter, analytical as I am, and thinking it through (=starting from the WTF ....??). The whole thing just hit me like completely out of the blue.

Free Breeze, I have been affirming "I Trust the Universe, I freely give Love and Trust"..I believe if we can trust ourselves..we can trust others. Because I believe we attract to ourselves what we are, not what we want. Expecting others to be honest, helps draw honest people to us. I think that is no too much to ask of someone, to be honest. I find honesty is the best policy, then I don't have to remember anything I say, because the truth remains the same.

Elizabeth, I was just watching abit of a show about John's music and how the powers that be..were afraid of his words. They can prodict the actions of the masses..and ONE person with a dream..is unpredictable. Plus, dreams are contagious. I have a book of quotes that covers all kinds of aspects from love to death. Glad you enjoyed them. Still planning on watching the videos..on a bit of a break now..not much time to watch!:)

My favorite quotes "Do Unto Others, as you would have them Do Unto You"~~ Jesus. "Kindness to all living things is the True Religon"~~ The Buddha

Seems that my last LTR must have hit me harder with the 'life lessons' than I had thought :/
Time for a Group Meditation....
Thanks Queen 182 !!

Thank you for responding to my question Free Breeze, I really respect and appreciate it.

Good place to start. I tend to start at the end and work towards the beginning.. LOL.

Would love to read any books you come across that you find helpful :)

LTR...aah you are too good LOL... you know exactly.. Since long term relationships are often not too analytical, I have started to read it back to front a' la "Right to Laugh / Love /Live" and if needed (to accomplish the first 3)... Right to Leave..!!

Thereafter I would HOPE [.. ehem 'Hope' is actually not a method though...expectation & trust is...] to Return to Laugh / Love / Live...!!

So indeed Group Meditation may be needed ...:))

"Hold on to Hope, for when Faith is gone, Hope is the Rope that saves you"..long term relationships..ahh I've had one of those..that right to leave part can get tricky. Analytical relationships totally would be short..we would talk ourselves right out of the insanity that can be love. Love is sticky, messy, challenging and rewarding..matters of the heart rarely make sense to a logical brain..

Be of Love...

It is a practised art to be of love..to counter hatred, intolerance and all that would cause harm...with love.

It can and is done. Ultimately, when we respond with complete love, understanding and acceptance..we create a world around us that reflects that.

There must be balance in all things..for every good there is a bad, for every right there is a wrong..embracing them as equal, leads way to walking in balance and love.

Easy to say, takes practise to do. I do my best to continaully be a source of love..cut me..I will bleed love. Slap me, I will bruise love. Take everything from me, I will breath love.

It is a choice, not a chance. It is a way, less traveled, for most fear the risk to really love..to give it all with no guarantee..of anything.

My Internet and T.V. were out from 4pm yesterday to about an hour ago!!! I can't believe how heavily I rely on technology :((

Anyways I wish you all a very wonderful,safe,and relaxing weekend!!!!!

Sending you love, and appreciatation :)

"The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But its more then that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasue your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear"
-Stephen King
