Six Word Fridays - Collect

"The gleam of one pleasing thought, 
makes all the difference for me."

our theme, collect.

On the very way we collect-

-Explains much about who we are.

"There are no facts, only interpretations." -
Friedrich Nietzsche

"Even when we don't see it
the dust that settles over our
life will always be present."
 - Me

"We become not a melting pot 
but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, 
different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes 
(and never to forget) different dreams." 
Jimmy Carter

"I live my life in growing 
orbits which move out over the
 things of the world. Perhaps I
 can never achieve the last, but
 that will be my attempt."
Rainer Maria Rilke

"I am a collection of thoughts 
and memories and likes and dislikes. 
I am the things that have 
happened to me and the sum 
of everything  that I have done."
Macaulay Culkin

Any and everything  that we do
means not just something to us

but to everyone that shares it.

"If human beings had genuine courage,
 they'd wear their costumes every day 
of the year, not just on
 Halloween." Don't you agree with me?
Douglas Coupland

Thank you for stopping by, and sharing some of your time with me.  Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Wonderful post, Karen! I really like the Jimmy Carter quote. Have a happy Friday and weekend!

Dreaming said...

What fun quotes and pictures. I do wish we could see the costumes that people may be wearing... a visual of who they are at any particular moment.

Karen S. said...

Mac- I can believe it. As a child already I wanted to be just like her.

Karen S. said...

Theresa- he sure is, in so many ways.

Karen S. said...

Eileen, me too, he has many great quotes!

Cranberry Morning said...

Some people, out of fear, do wear their costumes every day, which prevents us from truly knowing them.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Simply delightful - such inspirations.

Debbie said...

some real thought provoking stuff!!! i just collect things that have meaning to me...treasures that evoke a pleasant feeling!!

i even save the fortunes from my fortune cookie. i date them and keep them in a champagne glass. when i look at the glass, i always feel happy!!!!

RedPat said...

I feel like putting a costume on and running around!

Jeanie said...

If a passion and vice can be the same thing -- and I think they can-- then collecting is one of mine! Sometimes it's a bad thing -- but I love it! Nice shots here, Karen!

Ileana said...

Wonderful post! I love Audrey! :)

wonderful collection of quotes. I especially like the Pleasing Thought one. It is nice to be back in bloggy land. I'm not sure why I lost it this winter...blame it on the snow.

I went around dressed up like a regular human today. Boring, as usual.


sage said...

Good pictures and quotes although I might have a disagreement with the Nietzsche quote.

JJ said...

I think I live my life in costume because "There are no facts, only interpretations." I figure if Nietzsche is right, I had better influence the audience or be lost in the crowd.

Filip and Kristel said...

Strange looking caracters in the last picture. Beautiful.

elegant reflection on the car- not everyone sees beauty when it's right in front of them.
