and Sometimes 
Good Things fall Apart 
so Better things can fall Together.”

and do the Right Thing 
and be in the Right Place

to be Shadows of Each Other, 
Trying to buy the Same records 
and Everything 
even if we don't Like them. 

Kids are like Robots, 
off an Assembly Line, 
and I Don't want to be a Robot!”

178/365 - Reaching his Highest Potential (Elizabeth Gilber)


“I have a History of making decisions very quickly about Men. 
I have always Fallen in Love fast 
and without Measuring Risks. 

 I have a tendency not only to See the Best in everyone, 
but to Assume that everyone is Emotionally Capable 
of Reaching his Highest Potential. 

 I have Fallen in Love more times than I care to count 
with the Highest Potential of a Man, 
Rather than with the Man Himself, 
and I have Hung on to the Relationship 
for a Long Time
 (sometimes Far Too Long)
 Waiting for the man to Ascend to his Own Greatness. 

Many Times in Romance 
I have been a Victim of my own Optimism.”

  - Elizabeth Gilbert

172/365 - A Witness to our Life (Susan Sarandon)


“We need a Witness to our Lives.

  There are Billions of people on the planet.
I mean, what does any One Life really Mean?  

But in a Marriage, 
you’re Promising to Care about Everything – 
the Good things, the Bad things, 
the Terrible things, the Mundane things – 
All of it, All the time, Every day.  

You’re saying, 
'Your Life will not go Unnoticed 
 because I Will Notice It.  

Your Life will not go Un-Witnessed,
 because I will be your Witness.’”

- Susan Sarandon
