Tuesday Tidbits #135


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 know today will be a great day because it is sandwiched between one lived well and one not promised.

I have never memorized one of my poems, even my most favorite. Writing for me is an act of letting go, not a way to hold on.

It is in our lover’s arms that we confess who we really are. Where safety and compassion break the chains we are shackled with.

Americans are staunch non-conformists. They won’t give an inch on the metric system or call soccer football.

What we hope to teach our children is to make good choices and to be responsible for the choices they make.

Forgive me for being redundant if I say I love you when I give you a hug.

Do I want to be famous someday? To the people that really count, I already am.


Now get out there and write something!

    Once again, I find it hard to pick a favorite. I think the one about the safety of our lover’s arms stands out to me the most. I also love the last one, and the one about redundancy. They are all so good!

    yes, to the hug quote!

  3. You’re right! I have never made it a point to memorise either my songs or poems. I let them go… And it is and always will be football! NFL “football” should really be called “handball” as there is such little foot to ball time!

    the world should just give up and call it soccer 🙂

    Non-conformists sound a bit too complimentary for those unwilling to compromise in any circumstance.

  6. I am going to memorize one of your poems. Which one is the shortest?
