expectations

Posted: 04/28/2008 in life

i am so frustrated with ‘expectations’. instead of ranting and raving and making a fool of myself… i am going to try to bow out gracefully by just putting a few quotes on here!

“Life is so constructed that an event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.”
-Charlotte Bronte

“‘Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed’ was the ninth beatitude.” – Alexander Pope

“Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise.”- Alice Walker

“Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.” -Dennis Wholly

what i am working on today: “To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves–there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.” -joan didion
