Tuesday Tidbits #66


Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!


I am not sure why, even amongst the accolades of readers and peers, I still wonder if what I write is any good. Does this feeling ever go away for a writer?

It is sometimes difficult to read my earlier work. Cringe-worthy even. But it is good to recognize our progress in the journey, if we ever hope to be sure of the next step.

Mankind has left its story behind since we painted on cave walls. We have always known that we will not be here forever.

Though a poem, written in beautiful calligraphy, can make for a lovely wall hanging, there is nothing truly decorative about our art. It is made of a greater substance than mere paper or canvas can hold.

I have always found celebrations about my birthday to be redundant and unnecessary. Every morning I am reminded of how old I am getting.

If you do not believe there are β€œromance” languages, then you have never been cursed out in French. It is a lovely experience for the ear, if not the ego.

When we lose our ability to see when we are wrong, we lose any vision of becoming more than we already are, and we settle for the hillside rather than the mountain top.

Now get out there and write something!

    your first lines ring true – it’s hard to call oneself a writer no matter how many accolades. and as for the birthday, I love celebrating mine, I’d love to make it a long fiesta instead of just one day, and I do my best to drag it out!

  2. I like the idea of you looking 30 again, so I would look 36! You will always be younger than me, and the older I get, the more advice I’ll be able to give you about growing older!

    I enjoy celebrating my birthday; my age has never bothered me. And now I want someone to curse me out in French… πŸ™‚

    I love the first one. Self-doubt is a real hazard when it comes to any type of writing. I’ve heard the same sentiment from songwriters. I’m amazed how often I hear this from others who most of us feel are exceptional writers.

  5. You’re not old!

    True, True,True and definitely True. I agree with all these statements. I especially have the wonder if my writing is really any good and the birthday thing, not having it anymore. I love your tidbits you should do a book on these they are brilliant and true. The wise poet you will be know by my dear friend. Sending you a bunch of love as that is always a wonderful thing. Hugs too, how I have missed hugging my neighbors. β€οΈπŸ€—πŸ’πŸ€—πŸ’πŸ˜˜ Jonikins

    I almost missed this edition of Tidbits, but I am glad I found it…yes, I think we know we are forever somewhere but perhaps not on this earth and you are so right, we never really think it is that good even if all others say it is. Very good thoughts my friend. All the best and have a great weekend!

    First of all, you are far from old! You, my dear, deserve to be celebrated. The world is better because you are in it.

    Secondly, all of these struck a chord in me, but the first one and the last one struck the loudest!
