In Someone Else's Words

Over the years, I've collected quotes from movies, books, friends, posters, you name it. Thoughts that are verbalized better than I could say it at the time. Or, funnier. Or, truer. Even though I started writing them down years before I even knew organizing was a profession, it turns out I've got a few that apply. (It must have been in my bones already!)

"If it weren't for the last minute, a lot of things wouldn't get done." - Michael S. Taylor

"Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough." - George Bernard Shaw
*You are not the only person struggling with disorganization!

"In order to seek one's own direction, one must simplify the mechanics of ordinary, everyday life." - Plato

"We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." - Carl Gustav Jung, Psychological Reflections

 "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." - William Morris

 "Don't confuse the love of an item with the love of a person." - Sue DeRoos

"Chaos is always an accessory to order and belongs to our world..." - Michael, Ajvaz, The Other City

Well, that last one was for me.
