Random Quotes Meme

My second meme to post tonight; again, I looked these up earlier in the week, after first seeing the meme on vado's journal. I enjoyed this one - it's a lovely idea, and I liked the quotes I found. I think it only took me three random screens to find these five . . .

First: Go to this website and use the random quotes generator therein to find five statements that reflect who you are or what you believe. Stick them in your LJ and pass it on:

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. - Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 - 1968)

Look at what your idea of success would be. The more that you take in external motivators, the more it reduces your ultimate satisfaction because it doesn't come from inside. - Chris Messina, Cashing In or Selling Out, SXSW 2006

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. - Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. - James Lane Allen

When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere. - Francois de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)
