I was reading about quotes earlier. We all have our favorite ones, the ones that have had a huge impact on us over the years.
It seems like some people have a quote for every occasion or situation. What’s a quote (or series of quotes) that have seriously impacted your life?
Quote mining, people taking micro-sound bytes of statements out of context & running with them is something that’s always irked me immensely. Even worse are their connections who just accept uncritically whatever said people post. Quote mining can do a lot of damage, so don’t just believe bits & pieces of things, research!
“If you’re a recovering alcoholic, don’t go swimming in a barrel of whiskey”
This saying is pretty self explanatory. It means not to give temptation a foothold.
“How easily you are willing to compromise your convictions, or not, says everything someone needs to know about how fervently you held them in the first place”.
