Last week was a fairly mundane week, culminating in a wonderful surprise of a weekend, so I decided that today’s quote theme would have to be “surprises,” of the pleasant variety. It’s pretty sweet when a force you weren’t expecting sneaks up on you, wakes you up and changes your idea what is possible in some important area of your life.
“Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.” — Samuel Johnson (from The Idler: Poems)
“There are two kinds of taste, the taste for emotions of surprise and the taste for emotions of recognition.” — Henry James
“Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise.” — Alice Walker
