”It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop.”
Az élet olyan, mint a testnevelés órai futás. Földing tanár úr mindig azt mondta, hogy mindegy milyen gyorsan futjuk le a kötelező három erdei kört, csak csináljuk meg anélkül, hogy megállnánk.
Hogy felkeverve magad mögött a port végigszáguldod a pályát, hogy mielőbb célbaérj, vagy inkább kellemes tempóban kocogod végig a távot, az a te döntésed. Mindenkinek másképp esik jól. Ez nem verseny. Itt mindegy, hogy mikor éred el a célvonalat, mert mindenkinek külön szalagja van, amit diadalittasan átszakíthat.
Ha vannak céljaid, nem feltétlenül kell hozzájuk időkorlátot rendelned.
Ha úgy érzed, jó úton jársz, ne változtass irányt.
Ha boldog vagy, jól csinálod.
“Ten little nigger boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were Nine.
Nine little nigger boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were Eight.
Eight little nigger boys travelling in Devon;
One said he’d stay there and then there were Seven.
Seven little nigger boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were Six.
Six little nigger boys playing with a hive;
A bumble bee stung one and then there were Five.
Five little nigger boys going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were Four.
Four little nigger boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were Three.
Three little nigger boys walking in the Zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were Two.
Two little nigger boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was One.
One little nigger boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were None.”
Lenkát hallgatok, Cecelia Ahern idézeteket olvasgatok. Kitalálod, milyen kedvem van?
“We all get lost once in a while, sometimes by choice, sometimes due to forces beyond our control. When we learn what it is our soul needs to learn, the path presents itself. Sometimes we see the way out but wander further and deeper despite ourselves; the fear, the anger or the sadness preventing us returning. Sometimes we prefer to be lost and wandering, sometimes it’s easier. Sometimes we find our own way out. But regardless, always, we are found.”
“There’s no limit to what you can dream. You expect the unexpected, you believe in magic, in fairy tales, and in possibilities. Then you grow older and that innocence is shattered and somewhere along the way the reality of life gets in the way and you’re hit by the realization that you can’t be all you wanted to be, you just might have to settle for a little bit less.”
“On the other hand, she was a woman with a million happy memories, who knew what it was like to experience true love and who was ready to experience more life, more love and make new memories. Whatever lay ahead, she knew she would open her heart and follow where it led. In the meantime, she would just live.”
“So let’s say that theoretically I really like you. And theoretically, even though it sounds moronically cliché and overused, you give me butterflies. And just for kicks, let’s add that, all in theory of course, you may be the one of the most wonderful people I have ever met. And hypothetically, my heart beats ten times faster when I see you. Do you think that you would supposedly, and in the most theoretical sense…feel the same?”
Csak mert ez tök aranyos.
(Meg azért is, mert megint ugyanaz van, mint nyáron. Csak igazából ez most még rosszabb, mert már szeptember óta tart. Nem értitek, én se értem. Jó ez így.)
