Quotations: Part Five

I’ve been sharing quotations on Facebook and recapping on this blog. These quotations typically come from my own reading/learning/listening and therefore have significant meaning in my life (or at least to a life I aspire to).

.

Make sure the team members know they’re working with you, not for you.  – John Wooden

.

Everything I’ve ever let go of has claw marks on it.  – David Foster Wallace

.

There are many ways to move on, and pretending to feel a certain way isn’t one of them. – Lori Gottlieb

.

But part of getting to know yourself is to unknow yourself—to let go of the limiting stories you’ve told yourself about who you are so that you aren’t trapped by them, so you can live your life and not the story you’ve been telling yourself about your life. – Lori Gottlieb

.

We have an abundance of rape and violence against women in this country and on this Earth, though it’s almost never treated as a civil rights or human rights issue, or a crisis, or even a pattern. Violence doesn’t have a race, a class, a religion, or a nationality, but it does have a gender. – Rebecca Solnit

.

Worry is a way to pretend that you have knowledge or control over what you don’t–and it surprises me, even in myself, how much we prefer ugly scenarios to the pure unknown. – Rebecca Solnit
