“Life doesn’t turn out as we expect it to. When we come out into the world, our future seems as smooth and unmarred as virgin snow.

It is what makes life so interesting; one quickly learns that one never knows what is going to happen next.”

  1. Hi Catherine, I’m addicted to quotes and you have some excellent ones here. I especially like the one from Unknown – seen that before and now more than ever, it makes sense – and from Anais Nin. Also, that rather beautiful piece from Elizabeth Ashton. Oh well, I like them all and am retweeting to all my other quote addict followers.

    Nice Christine.

    Good page to visit for quote fanatics like me…. 🙂

  3. Love these quotes as I have my self a website with quotes about life. Thought it would be wise to share my favorite quote: “It’s the choices that make us who we are, and we can always choose to do what’s right.” – Peter Parker

  4. Thanks for visiting, Chaitra. Just added two more quotes today!

    Have a great day and come visit again….

  5. The last quote I posted by Coco Chanel is truly beautiful:
    “The poetry of fashion lies in the creation of illusion.”

    I believe that this concept can apply to many things. Think about fiction writers who create illusion with each word they write!

    Just my two cents 🙂
