Quote Alphabet word association
« on: August 31, 2012, 07:59:32 PM »
I see so many association games and alphabet games so I have a new one...
Rule 1. This is an alphabet association game. 
Rule 2. With the word you associate you must put down a quote related to that word.

I'll start:

Applaud - "Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.  ~Aesop"

Beauty

"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
 For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
 For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
 For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
 For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
" ~Sam Levenson

Compassion

"...when we finally know we are dying, and all other sentient beings are dying with us, we start to have a burning, almost heartbreaking sense of the fragility and preciousness of each moment and each being, and from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings." ~Sogyal Rinpoche

Decency

"What have I always believed? That on the whole, and by and large, if a man lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out all right." ~Terry Pratchett, Small Gods

Envy

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”

It's one of my favorites; as is this next one.

Happiness

For me happiness occurs arbitrarily:
 a moment of eye contact on a bus, where all at once you fall in love;
 or a frozen second in a park where it's enough that there are trees in the world.

Love-

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.  To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.  To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Quality


Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

Revolution

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.” ~ Jim Morrison

V ~ Violence

"This is one of the most violent places in the world, but people here live beyond fear."

-Swedish journalist and writer Stefan Jonsson in a travel feature about a mining town in Greenland with badly broken social codes and rocketing rates of crime and alcoholism. There's something weirdly funny about the way the second part of the quote comes in so from the left field; it's not what you'd expect after a "but" is it?  ;)

Xenophobia (hardest letter in the world for quotes :P)

“Our love of lockstep is our greatest curse, the source of all that bedevils us. It is the source of homophobia, xenophobia, racism, sexism, terrorism, bigotry of every variety and hue, because it tells us there is one right way to do things, to look, to behave, to feel, when the only right way is to feel your heart hammering inside you and to listen to what its timpani is saying.”
― Anna Quindlen
