Bill from Perks of Being a Wallflower may have become well known for the quote ‘We accept the love we think we deserve.’ but I find that his most thoughtful and insightful remark was about four paragraphs earlier.
“It’s just that sometimes people use thought to not participate in life.”
Oh how right you are Mr. Chbosky. Not to mention it’s a successful way to evade the nirvana that is a good night’s sleep. Then again it could be my TV screen activating my brain’s suprachiasmatic nuclei thus influencing my circadian rhythm…
…and once again, my thoughts have wandered.
I stumbled upon this quote a while ago on WordPress and wrote it down on a scrap piece of paper. While cleaning out my desk, it happened to fall out and I thought ‘What perfect timing.’.

Hi so I was nominated for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge by Jaisal (whose blog you should definitely check out btw) a while ago and I’ve been slow on the promise to complete the challenge. Finally, I have resolved to begin! The challenge is to post three quotes consecutively for three days so here goes day 1!
Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.
– Claude Monet
This quote is succinct and powerful, resonating with me as both an admirer of art and an artist herself. Why complicate a beautiful thing? Just loving it is enough. I think that applies to life as well. I tend to introspect and overthink too much and sometimes it’s exhausting so this quote makes a lot of sense in those times.
Anyways, I’m a little lazy to nominate so anyone who reads this can be considered a nominee 🙂 Share your quotes with everyone, it’s fun!
