Debbie Says – Common Sense Quotes
I collect quotes – meaningful, inspirational quotations by people from today and long ago. BUT, for the most impact, putting my own perspective on their wise words sometimes helps me “get it” and better apply it.
For instance, one of my favorites, Ralph Waldo Emerson, said back in the 1800’s, “Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”
WHAT? Need a little help here…
Here’s my interpretation:
Doing things the way we’ve always done them, just for consistency’s sake can become inefficient, make us lazy and cause us to limit our experiences, thus creating pesky little hobgoblins (something causing fear).
Now – I can do something with that.
Debbie says…includes common sense quotes, some with my interpretation to help you better apply them. Many need no interpretation, and for fun and because I love playing with words, some of my original thoughts will be added to the mix.
Enjoy! Take the ones you like and leave the rest
