percolating thoughts (#4)

['Percolating thoughts' is an on-going collection of quotes I have found and gained wisdom from.  These are the ones that I've recently discovered and that I'm currently sitting with and reflecting on...]

"The meaning of life is whatever you make it out to be..."

"Peoples lives are delicate; you cannot interfere with them without running the risk of changing them profoundly.  A chance remark, a careless involvement, may make the difference between a life of happiness and one of sorrow."
-Alexander McCall Smith, The Kalahari Typing School for Men

"Sometimes you've gotta do what you've gotta do, and pray that the people you love will catch up with you."
-Mary Gauthier, "Drag Queens in Limousines"

"Life is made of our attitudes.  And there are certain things that the gods oblige us to live through.  Their reason for this doesn't matter, and there is no action we can take to make them pass by."
-Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain
