I’m shamelessly (!) stealing this idea from Bolaji.

Here are seven of my favorites:

1. Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

2. “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” — Albert Einstein

3. If life gives you lemons, throw them back and demand chocolate.

4. I have always believed that writing advertisements is the second most profitable form of writing. The first, of course, is ransom notes – Philip Dusenberry

5. Walk like you’re wearing a cape – Josh Hanagarne’s dad

6. The only difference between an audience and a community is the way the chairs are facing – Chris Brogan

7. If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am for myself only, what am I? And if not now, when? – Hillel

What are yours?

  1. I have a whole book of quotes I’ve written from books, but this one, from Shelf Awareness today, struck me for its appealing melancholy:

    “In the end the self is left unfinished, it is abandoned because of the death of its owner. All the exceptional details, confessions, secrets, photographs of loved faces and sometimes more than faces, precious addresses, towns and hotels meant to be visited given the time, stories, sacred images, immortal lines, everything heaped up or gathered because it is intriguing or beautiful suddenly becomes superfluous, without value, the litter of decades swirls at one’s feet.”
    –from Burning the Days: Recollection by James Salter.
