Wednesday Wisdom Round Up II

A composite of my last twelve Wednesday!

Where were we before we were rudely interrupted? Ah yes the 12 previous Wednesday Wisdoms.

So why, how, and what about my Wednesday Wisdoms are on my original round up- here.

Tyler Durden | 300817

"You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you." Tyler Durden from Fight ClubAn iconic bit of film, and one with a great quote. Then again it does sum up my feelings about religion and what not.

 

 

 

 

 

Oscar Wilde | 130917

"After a good dinner, one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations" Oscar WildeI was going through a foodie theme at the time, and Oscar Wilde’s quote jumped right out to me. There is something calming, especially at this time of year, that eating a good meal has.

 

 

 

William Morris | 200917

A tulip in an art nouveau esq frame around the William Morris quote "The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life."Taking the time to stop and consider is something that William Morris was looking to extol on to people. Not just his fine furniture and art work. I have to say visually it’s one of my favourites.

 

 

 

 

Rene Descartes | 270917

3 ways of saying the famous Rene Descartes quote: in Latin "Cogito ergo sum", in French "Je pense, doc je suis", and in English "I think therefore I am".The first multilingual entry, with help from Belov’d. The only language it wasn’t said in was English- but I find it fascinating! It took ages to shuffle it all together.

 

 

 

Albert Camus | 111017

Reads "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower" quote from Albert CamusCamus walks us through the darker side of beauty. Autumn is just as beautiful as Spring, like moths and butterflies.

 

 

 

 

 

Micheal Fish | 181017

Reads "she heard there was a hurricane on the way... well, if you're watching, don't worry, there isn't!" Micheal Fish, BBC Weather PresenterTo celebrate Ophelia hitting and the general issues of what happens when you get something wrong. Even if you were working off of respectable information.

 

 

 

 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle | 251017

WW 251017Few people are as notable when it comes to mysteries as Sir Conan Doyle. A lot of horror and mystery relies upon some kind of imagination. What would life be without it?

 

 

 

Anthony Oettinger | 011117

Reads "Time flies like an arrow- fruit flies like a banana" Anthony OettingerA bit of word play from the man that invented spell check. It’s the word play that has helped develop the likes of spell check and how it’s used.

 

 

 

PG Wodehouse | 081117

Quote reads "My earnest hope is that the entire remainder of my existence will be one round of unruffled monotony." PG WodehouseA wonderful quote, something that I think many people aspire to a little monotony and straightforward life. Then again, I don’t think I mind a bit of adventure now and again!

 

 

 

Georgia O’Keeffe | 151117

Quote from Georgia O'Keeffe "Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time."Celebrating Georgia O’Keeffe and her work on her birthday. Georgia’s approach encouraging us to be more in the moment, to realise that the there is something about being and enjoying the present. Like flowers.

 

 

Barbara de Angelis | 221117

"Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away" Barbara de AngelisNothing inherently deep about this one. I just think it’s true, to find out a bit more about yourself you need to be by yourself. Travelling alone is one of the easiest ways to find this all out. I’d really recommend it if you’re able to try it out.

 

 

Anansi Boys, Neil Gaiman | 291117

"Everybody going to be dead one day, just give them time" 'Anansi Boys' by Neil Gaiman.Waiting for my phone to arrive, made me very¬†very¬†very impatient. So in an attempt to make me realise that I’d get there eventually, I thought to have a little theme of patience. And my ongoing love for Gaiman helped out!

 

 

 

 


 

So that has it for the moment. I know that we’ve continued on past the 291117 but due to that internet outage. Writing this up requires a bit of internet connection, but we should get back on track.

Let me know if there are any you particularly liked, or even if you’d like to suggest anything either. See you tomorrow for the next edition!
