Life Lessons from Great Writers
With the wealth of ‘valuable’ information out there that tells us how to live our lives, where do you turn to for life lessons? The internet? Self-help books? Your Grandmother? Your animal spirit guide?
Nope, from me!
Well actually, I can’t take credit for these quotes, but I’m sharing them because they make me stop and think, and they might just do the same for you.
We all know that it’s all too easy to say something in the heat of the moment that you immediately regret, and once it’s out there you can’t take it back.

We only have one life, so let’s not waste it by worrying about what we might be missing out on, or trying to achieve what other people expect of us.
Love, friendship, respect – all interchangeable here as far as I’m concerned. If someone truly loves, respects and cares for you, their feelings shouldn’t be shaken when circumstances or appearances change. We all get older, and our bodies, opinions or personal situations may change, but a true friend, a true loved one, will be there no matter what.
Do we sometimes spend too long ticking this, that and the other off our lists, before moving quickly on to the next life experience without stopping to reflect on what we’ve learned?
Oh . . . . maybe that one’s just me!
