Speaking Words of Wisdom

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I’ve been watching this show called Being Erica on Netflix. Yes, it’s mega cheesy. Yes, it has sub-par Canadian production values. But it also has its great moments.

One of the things I enjoy about it is a character who is full of insightful quotes. I’ve been taking notes as he says the ones that really hit home for me.

Consider this your “Weekend Wisdom.” But on a Thursday. Because well, sometimes we could use some thoughtful words to get us through the week. I know I do.


There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
– Leonard Cohen


It takes a lot of courage to grow up and be who you really are. 
– e. e. cummings


Learn to be what you are, and learn to resign with good grace all that you are not.
– Henry Frederick Emile


While we are postponing, life speeds by.
– Lucius Annaeus Seneca


Whatever your past has been, you have a spotless future.
– Melanie Gustafson
