Profound Quotes You Relate To


Recommended Posts

I'll kick off with one:

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

 Rudyard Kipling

“Royalty was like dandelions. No matter how many heads you chopped off, the roots were still there underground, waiting to spring up again.

It seemed to be a chronic disease. It was as if even the most intelligent person had this little blank spot in their heads where someone had written: "Kings. What a good idea." Whoever had created humanity had left in a major design flaw. It was its tendency to bend at the knees.”

-- Terry Pratchett, Feet of Clay

"You do you." - unknown.

It's very helpful in this day and age of apparently mandatory divisive opinion.

Edit: urban dictionary disagrees;

Millennial way of passive aggressively telling someone to go f themselves.

Mine`s not a quote but a line from Robbie Burns poem " To a Mouse ". 

" an` fellow-mortal ".

It`s sums up how I feel about all the little creatures I meet when I walk around my farm or where ever I go or all of our fellow creatures in general.
