Quotes and Thoughts 01: On Introspection and Being Alone

I love quotes. Specially motivational , inspirational at times just plain silly quotes. Whatever kind of quote it is, it always imparts some wisdom and uplifts me whenever I need some boost. I’ve been thinking of starting something like a featured quote and sharing my thoughts about it. I’ve done this with my other blog before but I just sort of forgotten all about it over time. Now I’m thinking (hehe just thinking..) of making a meme out of it..

Anyway, here’s my first quote pick..

Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that’s where you renew your springs that never dry up.
 – Pearl Buck
US novelist in China (1892 – 1973)

I guess, I had been feeling a little introspective these past few days so I picked this one. I always think that there’s something inside us that at times who yearns to be alone. I’m not saying that I want to be alone, but yes there are times, that I want to be quiet and just be by myself. 
Why? Because I get to sort out my feelings. Its also a great time for me to renew or rejuvenate. Of course, being with friends and with people who believe in us and encourage us is great but really there are just times you want to stop and be alone, and amazingly, some inner strength fills me up whenever I take the time to do this.
I think what the quote is trying to covey is that, inside all of us there are countless inspirations, ideas, all we just need to do is to look inside. Most of the time I’m guilty of listening to what others are saying, getting affected by this and that, ohh ahhing about others idea, but I it seldom occurs to me to listen to what my heart and my head is saying, to stop listening to others trying to put me down, to have confidence that my ideas are fine too (well they just need a little work hehe..).
