Friday Philosophy…

Today’s quotable quotes and philosophies come to you courtesy of Nicholas Sparks. Although I often find the reading of his books to be excruciatingly painful, sometimes I truly feel he is worth the excessive amounts of Kleenex I need. 🙂

I also find that he can offer appropriate words of wisdom for different times in our lives. So today you have “The World According to Sparks.” Sorry, Garp and John Irving…

“You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue

“When you’re struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it’s just as hard as what you’re going through.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

“Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle

“You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

“You are, and always have been, my dream.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

I know I have used Nicholas Sparks in a Kahlil Gibran way today. What can I say? I’m in a sentimental mood, and feel like heading straight for the mushy stories. 😉

Happy Friday, with blessings to you all…

Never give up…
