Indifference, Inspiration, And Other Things I Didn't Say

When looking at the AtoZ blogging challenge for this year, I considered doing a quotes version with daily quotes by various famous and not so famous people that I liked and which had inspired me.  I (obviously) changed my mind, and decided to go eclectic instead.  But today is the exception as the biggest quote which stood out to me was one by Elie Wiesel about indifference.  Since I <3 quotes here are the words of Mr. Wiesel as well as several other quotes I thought worth sharing.

(1) Indifference
The opposite of love is not hate, its indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, its indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, its indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, its indifference.
-Elie Wiesel
(2) (More) Indifference
The most deadly poison of our times is indifference.
- St. Maximillian Kolbe
(3) Simplicity
I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things in life which are the real ones after all. -
-Laura Ingalls Wilder
(4) Love
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts there can be no more hurt, only more love.
- Mother Teresa
(5) Suffering
Human suffering anywhere concerns men and women everywhere.
-Elie Wiesel, Night
(6) Challenges
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
(7) Habits
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not a virtue but a habit.
- Aristotle



  1. I love that quote on Indifference. It's so true :) Nice meeting you through the A-Z challenge. You are welcome to check out my A-Z posts here:

    1. I agree with you about the truth behind the indifference quote. I think he does such a great job of bringing truth into difficult subjects in his writing :) and I will definitely be checking out some of your blog posts.

  2. Eclectic is my favorite way to go. Nice selection of quotes here. I like Aristotle's thinking on excellence, a habit for which we should all strive.
