Don’t you just love quotes and analogies? They can make your day, lift you up, and cause you to see things in a different way. I’ve come across a few of them this week that have bumped around inside my brain like nagging thoughts tend to do. I’ve pondered them, and considered not only how they help me to see things in a different way, but also how they touch me.
I actually love this picture, and the quote above by Josh Billings, because it makes me think of our two Jack Russell terriers that we lost a couple of years ago. This saying for me is true… (and what a great love it is.)
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
So, on to the next analogy. I just heard this one a bit ago on a podcast by someone I follow. The quote was by guest, John Pollack, who is an author and former political writer.
“Money comes and goes, but time only goes.”
Well, that certainly makes you consider how you’re spending your time.
The next quote, found on a tweet by someone I follow and honestly, I don’t remember who the author of the quote is (I apologize). The quote:
“You can do anything, But not everything.”
-David Allen (I looked it up.)
Three different quotes I’ve been mulling over, like a dog with a bone. (I couldn’t help myself.) “If I can do anything, but not everything, and time goes, and my dog loves me more than he loves himself…
Then, I better stop wasting time, do what I love, and spend more time with the people I love because time is fleeting, your passion is worth it, and so are your loved ones.
Now, back to the thoughts, quotes, and analogies that rivet your soul… take a moment to write them, and consider them. You may learn something, and if you share them, someone else may see a little more clearly.
What can I say, I love quotes and analogies. Words just do it for me. Analogies are great ways to explain ideas, and make for writing better passages. They even help us to clarify, and simplify.
Leave me an analogy or quote in the comments. I’ll be looking for them today. It will only expand our view.
Have a great day!
