One of my favourites:

"Come to the edge" he said. They were afraid. "Come to the edge" he said. They came. He pushed them and they flew.

Very profound that one. If anyone doesnt understand. An explanation will follow:cool: . Thats another part of the thread...if someone doesnt understand...ppl can give their interpretation of what they think is the meaning of the quote:D .

"One day you will ask me which is more important? my life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life."

Another good one. Doesnt need much explanation. Very thought provoking:) .

"Don’t write your name on sand, waves will wash it away.

Don’t write your name in sky, wind may blow it away.

Write your name in hearts of people you come in touch with.

That’s where it will stay."

Re: Profound and Touching Quotes Thread

All things are connected

like the blood that unites us.

We did not weave the web of life,

We are merely a strand in it.

Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."

Maya Angelou

This one, especially since it is coming from Maya Angelou has a much deeper meaning.

Any thoughts:) ?

Re: Profound and Touching Quotes Thread

Good thread Anyway (Maybe Done Before Not Sure)

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

1 John 4:7, 11-12

"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God, and every one that loveth is born of God and knoweth God ... Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us."

Re: Profound and Touching Quotes Thread

Sure. :)

The first one means that even if there is no future you should still do the right thing. It is also about doing the right things in the knowledge that they will outlive you, so in the absence of hope you should still take pride in all you do.

The second I just take to mean that being optimistic makes you stronger, and that if you approach things optimistically you have a better chance of success.

My own dodgy interpretations on both. :D

Re: Profound and Touching Quotes Thread

Cheers for the contributions guys. Some very good ones there...and Teb i understood ur first one. Its very inspirational. Coming from Martin Luthor king at hard times for the dark people...it was no easy thing to say at the time...thats what makes it so special.

I got my own dodgy intepretation of it as well.:P this is what i thought:o

Even if everyone was goign to die tomorrow...he will play his part in helping to preserve some sort of life form. So some optimism there...and optimism was very difficult at his times. A very nice one. thanks for sharing:D
