Two and 13 combined are what holds friends together, I think!

Some of those are very thought provoking. I'm ashamed to admit i don't recognize half the names those quotes are attributed to.

I like 13's like this, because I get read quotes that I haven't seen in a awhile or new ones that give me a reason to think.

I enjoyed #2!

Wow, this is the third list of quotes I've seen today that had at least one I hadn't heard before and that really moved me. This time it's the Meister Eckhart one. I've been thinking a lot lately about the importance of detachment in living a good life.

*Rae* said...

Great list I really liked # 1,3,7 & 9 Happy TT thanks for sharing these quotes

Xakara said...

Thank you. I always love when others help me add to my quote collection.

#3 by Lao Tzu is one I was blessed to encounter many years ago and carry with me all this time.

The same is true of #1, #6 and #7, but Tzu held a special place, especially when paired with the Lennon quote.

My favorite new one was #2. I had to print that one out to mark it in memory.

Great list!

Happy TT :)
