Shout-out to the honest.cash crew. I've been thinking a lot about the timelessness of the written word. I'm going to share a few of my favourite quotes here -- I hope you enjoy! If you feel the urge, respond to this post with some of your favourites. :)

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." - Oscar Wilde

"I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy." - Dorothy Parker (Famously repeated by Tom Waits)

"Comparison is the thief of joy." - Theodore Roosevelt

"The thing men and women need to do is stick together, progressions can't be made if we're separate forever." - Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest)

“Today a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves." - Bill Hicks

"Why pamper life's complexities when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?" - Morrissey (from The Smith's 'This Charming Man')

“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” - Alan Watts

"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognise: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle." - Thich Nhat Hanh
