Quotes

Years ago, I got a lovely leather notebook as a present. I wasn’t sure what to do with it as it was too nice to waste on everyday scribbled notes. Eventually I settled on using it to record a selection of quotes, sayings and poems that I enjoy and that I want to remember and learn from.

Here are a few quotes I’ve read recently that I wanted to share:

There is no such thing as certainty. Only people who are certain.

A life is never ended until all the lives it has touched are ended too. (Chinese proverb)

Something a bit less profound, but no less accurate for all that:

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
