HyruleBalverine's Quote of the Week: Week 1

General Chat

Found 6 posts - Go to Last Post


Okay, so I found some cool little quotes or whatever they are supposed to be randomly when my mother took me out for my birthday. I thought that it might be a way to start some discussions if I posted them here. But, rather than just posting them all at once, I thought I would post one per week and see what sort of discussion we can create based on the specific quote given. Plus, by giving it a week in between quotes, I have a little time to look up more in between posting new ones should this become something that the community likes and I run out of quotes that I already have or know.

So, without further ado, here's the first Quote of the Week:

"A person is grown up not when they can take care of themselves, but when they can take care of others."

Please: Discuss; comment; and/or share an opinion on the quote (or since it's the first one, on the concept as a whole). Thanks!

So your mother took you too Chinese restaurant and you got a lot of fortune cookies ...lol..

This quote is very true and I like it because it shows that no matter how old you are or think you are your level of maturity is what ultimately really determines your outlook on life. But that doesn't mean you can have fun!!

I like this idea - it allows the lot of us to see a deeper intellectual side that generally is hidden away online.

For the quote, I like it inasmuch that being grown up is not a predetermined destiny, but a rite of passage that generally includes the ability to manage not only yourself, but another's life. Parents are thrust into this, some by choice, others by accident, etc... and the true growing up is when the child they have reared is capable of caring for others.

Many are grown up in the sense that they are adults, but still have no concept of self-realization or accountability.

Keep it up, I like this quote thing! Perfect mental stimulation for midday lunch break Big Grin

I'm glad that there are people here interested in this idea. The first few I do will be from the pull tabs. Next week, I'll make it a point to start posting where I found the quote, or who the quote is from if I know.

So far it seems only the three of us are interested in higher stimulating conversation. Don't be deterred at the lower starting numbers - I'm game. This sort of forum interaction is, in my opinion, much more interesting.
