This is my second post in the Three Day Quote Challenge (for which I was nominated by Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life).
So, do you agree with this quote attributed to the author of ‘The Little Prince’?
Not the Truth, yet there is a truth to this quote or so I believe. Like attracts like, birds of a feather flock together… yes,opposites attract though I think this only applies to romance? 🙂
The thing is, in the past I have privileged and placed great value in the evidence and proof of science. Yet lately, the ‘sayings’ of women and men who have lived life; who have endured hardships, pain and sorrow; who have reveled in the highs of love, passion, adventures, who have looked deep within themselves…are holding sway. For their souls are written the experiences of life. We may not adopt them nor agree with them, but we cannot deny their truths to others. And unlike science, life is not always ‘rational’ or ‘provable’, is it?
This quote is a guide for me… in navigating interactions and relationships. A person’s friends tell you so much of that person. How many low functioning people does a high functioning person has in his life? How many drinking ‘buddies’ does a teetotaler have in her inner circle? How many destructive or violent persons does a peace-loving person have in his life?
Here is a quote/poem which speaks of life, of being a success in life. I know many in this blog community who are, by the definition below, successful 🙂
