I have this notebook full of quotes that I started keeping as a kid. Any time I found a saying that struck me as smart or funny or otherwise worth remembering, I wrote it down in this notebook. I’ve been slowly adding bits to it since I was about 12. So, we’re going to do an experiment. Every now and then, with minimal explanation, I will share a quote with you. It might be wise or smart or funny, or it might just be the type of thing you think is very clever when you’re 15.
For example, here is today’s quote:
“One thing I have learned: God made people good, but they have found all kinds of ways to be bad.” -Ecclesiastes 7:29
I’m fairly certain this quote shouldn’t make me laugh, but it does. I’m sure when I wrote it down I thought it was a wise observation about morality, but now it just looks like a fun Friday night.
