Quotes to follow you

Have you ever?

Have you ever heard/read a quote that you’d follow like a mantra, like a guiding light? Have you ever seen a quote that resonated with you on all or some levels?

Or have you ever heard a quote that would follow you? Around. For a day. For a week. A quote that would disappear and come back one day unexpectedly and be so right and fit so well…

I have. I do. I will.

I’ve even started a quote notebook, several of them. I’ve lost some of them or thrown them out. But there are quotes I remember and like, love even. There are quotes that, like old letters from your loved ones, come back and bring back certain memories, feelings, realisations.

Today I picked a book of the shelf that I call ‘read it and give it away’. This time it was one of Colin Dexter Inspector Morse novels.

It starts with a quote

“Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever” – ARISTOPHANES

I don’t know about you but some quotes bring me a certain joy, a feeling of wander, wonder and curiosity, of wanting to know more, read more, write more. It’s like finding a seashell on the shore that would keep you amazed because of its uniqueness, completeness and mere sense of existence and being in your hand, being with you, being for you…
