What is your favourite quote and why?

I would like to begin here a compendium of those bits of wisdom humanity perceives to be most true or without exception.

It is not necessary to name who might be credited with saying your selection, as no such person can honestly claim to have been without some outside inspiration, which catalyzed their creativity and moved them to express their insight.
Much like what you are called here to do.

If you yourself have distilled some wisdom through reflection, please allow me to present you this moment to pass it on here for consideration or perhaps start your own string.

The purpose of all this is to provide a most efficient tool for correlating the most valid ideas about morality and what we perceive to be real or important across culture or socialization. I would then like to work with you to turn this soil and see what new things (ideas) might grow. Food for the soul.

You are encouraged to emulate the creative process here so: COPY, COMBINE and TRANSFORM! Help me correlate.

Please comment in a constructive way if you agree or not with anything posted here and explain why.

Topics: education quotes

    Mar 31 2012: If you are anything like me, you too see these quotes as absolutely priceless.
    These are testaments expressing what we as individuals feel in the deepest parts of us, to be true.

    Here are our inspirations and aspirations.

    I find it irresistible the feeling I get when two individuals pause to reveal their vulnerability and share strengths, all the while encouraging each other towards mutually beneficial therefore constructive action.
    We have done this here over 700 times. AWESOME!!!!

    These posts are testimonials. Please examine them with respect and get to know the hearts of those with whom you are collaborating… this to me is as beautiful as it is scary.

    Truelove; solemn, humorous, bittersweet and ultimately inspirational.
