quote this

So, here I am, finally getting to the meme from Random Musings! I had a few ideas in mind, but it actually has taken me this long to settle.

Here’s the deal:

  1. Read the quotes in the list.
  2. Read the last quote on the list closely, and choose a quote that somehow builds off one of the central ideas or values in the quote–critiques it, extends it, turns a good joke on it, whatever.
  3. Type or paste your quote at the bottom of the list, and link to the blog of the person you’re following.
  4. Tag someone else. Or someones else.

And here are the quotes:

  1. Ideals are very important in one’s life. Without ideals you cannot move – whether you achieve them or not is immaterial. But one must try and approximate them. –His Holiness the Dalai Lama
  2. You shall know the truth, and it shall make you odd. –Flannery O’Connor (re: Changa)
  3. Truth is more of a stranger than fiction. – Mark Twain re: bodhibound
  4. …how can you measure the life of a woman or man? In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried. In bridges he burned, or the way that she died. – Jonathan Larson, Rent (re: Random Musings)

Interested? Add your quote to the list and leave me a comment to let me know!
