An interesting quote

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

A wonderful young lady I know, a high-school classmate of my son actually, posted the following quote on Facebook today. It so intrigued me that I looked it up on google. I didn't find anything. So I looked some more. Every where I looked, the quote appeared but without a source. HMMM... very perplexing in this day and age of instant information.

Curious?

I thought you might be. I found it so interesting that I decided to dedicate my blog to it today. Well, ok. I was feeling snarky and couldn't think of anything to write about anyway. Plus, if I couldn't find a source, but the quote was easy to find, what does that mean. Should I be reflecting on it maybe? Is the Universe trying to send me a message?

Really, I wonder... Would you like to see the quote?

"Sometimes you put up walls not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down. "


WOW!!!!!

I wonder what walls I have up? Never mind, I know that answer, or at least I know most of it. I can think of quite a few walls I have put in front of other people just to see what they would do. Maybe not consciously, but still, they are there. I wonder if I have done that to myself too?

I think I may have to ponder this for a bit...

PS - Thanks to Alison for giving me food for thought.

    Excellent quote. Makes me think, too. I put up walls all the time...and then find myself confined and shut off by them...then down they come. I like your goals on your Spark Page, BTW...excellent. Hope you are having a great week! Keep sparking! emoticon emoticon

    The times I remember consciously doing this, it sure didn't work. I like the idea of "food for thought"! I sometimes wonder if walls are put up for protection.

    Good Blog!

    I think that's true... I test people in stupid/funny ways. If people care enough, they will do the work to get to know me. I'm screwed up.
