Notable Quote: About Change

I'm starting a new post category called Notable Quotes. For years I've jotted down in my journal, or on index cards, pieces of prose that struck a chord with me, from whatever I happen to be reading at the time. I didn't know until recently that a) I'm not the only person who does this, and b) there's actually a name for this habit - commonplacing - and it's a practice that's been done for hundreds of years.

So I'm going through my file of quotes, and I'll be sharing them with you once or twice a week. And since I'm always adding to my commonplace file, they'll never run out. Wheee - instant blog updating, heh heh. ~Enjoy~


Since the current CycleCast is all about change, I'll start with a quote that speaks about
  • CHANGE ~~~~~~
  • To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse.
  • To the hopeful it is reassuring because it means things may get better.
  • To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

This quote is from King Whitney, Jr., in the Wall Street Journal, 1967.

I enjoy commonplacing so much that I started a tumblelog called that and devoted exclusively to quotes I find meaningful. Perhaps I should have integrated them into my blog, since that gets more traffic, but in this case I'm thinking more about me than my readers. That's the beauty of blogging, I suppose. We can do that when we want.

Thanks to both of you for posting the comments. I hope my readers will continue to enjoy this post category.

@Mark, you were the one who inspired me to bring my commonplacing activities into my blog - and gave me the name for this practice, as well!

I have enjoyed perusing your blog this afternoon....I especially liked your treasure map(I can't go back and make sure that's what you called it!) and am inspired to make my own. I draw cards for myself and family as well and am going to look into the cards you use. They sound fascinating although I don't need ANOTHER deck! :)

Good luck on attracting readers. I have found in my limited experience that nothing beats visiting other blogs AND commenting regularly. I have made some wonderful friends this way and, while I don't worry much about my "stats", they do increase s l o w l y over time by visiting my friends and their friend's blogs...just takes time, and for night owls like us, what a great thing to do...beats TV!

blessings!
