Tuesday Tidbits #121


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!


Being good friends is not about how much time you spend together. It is about how much together you spend in your time.

Empathy is the ability to see a little of yourself in every face you meet.

In a world where our egos are constantly present, it is difficult to be selfless, but not impossible.

Most people are hesitant to share their fears. It is the one insight into ourselves that can be so easily weaponized.

We all make mistakes and errors. Choosing wrong or being wrong is something we are familiar with and must accept. But staying wrong is not required.

Why are we so eager to get from point “A” to point “B”, when “X” marks the spot?

An editor suggested that I may want to publish my work under a “nom de plume” or a pen name. I chose Parker Brothers.


Now get out there and write something!

    love the empathy quote

  2. I had myself quite a little chuckle about point A to point B when X marks the spot!!! And I would love to have a lively conversation about selflessness being possible or not…

  3. A true friend, even if you’ve not seen him for years when you do, you just pick up and continue as if you would have been together the day before…

    If I were you, I would have chosen DARB ENROBSO as a pen name because I’m inverted….er, introverted. Close enough.

    Empathy is the glue that makes us connect with people. Most of my best friends share this wonderful quality.

    I love all of these! You make it so hard to choose a favorite.

    I always thought Paige Turner would because good pen name.

  7. I have always been overeager to get from point A to point B and I have no idea why. My Mom’s pen name was Quinn Curry and my brother Kevin was O.B. Counter. I would have liked Sue Denim but several people have already used it.
