Quotations: Part Six

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).

It would be many years before I began to understand that all of life is practice: writing, driving, hiking, brushing teeth, packing lunch boxes, making beds, cooking dinner, making love, walking dogs, even sleeping. We are always practicing. Only practicing. — Dani Shapiro

.

We are all entitled to our opinions and religious beliefs, but we are not entitled to make shit up and then use the shit we made up to oppress other people. Cheryl Strayed

.

There is considerable danger in standing too close to the river of another’s thoughts—the faster the current, the easier it is to fall in and be swept away from ourselves. Bruce Lee

.

I made a conscious decision not to do any specific research on the Vietnam War and the political turmoil surrounding it. I felt that the politics had eclipsed the veterans, their service and their lives.  – Maya Lin: Designer of the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial

.

There are so many ways people are forced to disappear, uprooted, erased, told that this is not their story and not their place. – Rebecca Solnit: Recollections of My Nonexistence
