10 QUOTES WORTH REMEMBERING FEATURING DAN S. WHITE

November 29, 2011

Over the last year, since I’ve been on FACEBOOK, I’ve been amused, angered, touched, and inspired by the postings of my FACEBOOK friend Dan S. White especially some of his own quotable quotes. I asked him to put together this edition of “QUOTES WORTH REMEMBERING” which include some of his favorites as well as his own creations.

                                                                       **********************************

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The demand to be loved is the greatest of all arrogant presumptions.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Never chase love, affection, or attention. If it isn’t given freely by the other person, it isn’t worth having.

“Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.” ~Voltaire

Live without pretending, Love without depending, Listen without defending and speak without offending.

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was about to end, it became a butterfly.

“To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.” ~ Emily Dickinson

There becomes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will.

If I could reach up and hold a star for every time you made me smile and feel good, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand.

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~ Maya Angelou

  1. Dan S. White Says:

    Thank you very much for this groovy gesture, Artie. This is really nice of you to do…Thanks again!

  2. Laura Says:

    I’ve had the pleasure of seeing many of Dan’s quotes on both his Facebook and Twitter feeds, and I’m always impressed with their wisdom; truly they are words to live by. Thank you so much for spotlighting Dan and his writing. As a fellow writer myself, I really appreciate it! Dan, keep on doing whatcha do; you are truly an inspiration. 🙂

  3. Alan Says:

    Artie, glad you featured a bit of Dan’s work, as I was not familiar with him.

    Dan, could you clear up my confusion: I’ve seen the last quote on Artie’s list before, attributed to Carl W. Buechner & Maya Angelou. No disrespect intended, just curious. Sometimes more than one person independently authors a similar truism.
    Thanks,
    Alan


    • Alan, I’ve seen that same quote attributed to Maya Angelou, Malcom Forbes and Carl Buechner. After a long-term Google search, statistics support Angelou as the original source. I believe she even read that passage from one of her books years ago, when on an Oprah show appearance.

      It’s easy for a person who shared a quote often to be assumed as the origin of the quote and it may well be it is one of Dan White’s favorites to quote in speeches. Sounds like a redux of the famous Marianne Williamson quote (“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…”.) that was forever being attributed to Nelson Mandela, because he cited it in one of his addresses…I even saw that printed and attributed to Mandela on the inside of a wedding program because of its beautiful message.

      I don’t know who originated the quote, “No one person is as smart as all of us,” but it’s a favorite of mine, and seems never more true than here.
      Thanks,
      Dawn

  4. Dan S. White Says:

    Many thanks to all fans who checked out this great section created by Artie. I appreciate all the accolades.

  5. Dan S. White Says:

    I believe that it’s really NOT about the author who wrote or thought of a quote or saying, it’s all about the message within the quote. The author is just to give credit, but the message is still the message, no matter how we translate it, how it’s taken in perspective or context or vice versa.
