31.12.08

. . . And In Conclusion

It's the last day of 2008 and my mind has once again drifted into the world of reflection. There are really no words to describe this year. Ok, maybe there are, but I won't share them on this public forum.

Since I refuse to articulate my thoughts regarding 2008, I thought I'd feature some quotes that have recently stood out to me:

"For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning." - T.S. Eliot

"We lie the loudest when we lie to ourselves." - Eric Hoffer

"We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them." - Livy

"We do not acquire humility. There is humility in us - only we humiliate ourselves before false g-ds." - Simone Weil

"My friends are my estate." - Emily Dickinson (I would like to add family on to this as well)

"I look forward to putting to rest the events of this past year and remembering them with a mixture of happiness and sadness. I look forward to this coming year for there are many adventures and possibilities that await." - Froggie
