I dropped my juggling balls and my face grew embarrassed. It wasn't until then that I looked around the circus of life and noted all were too consumed on their own juggling act to see. This is when I learned to have fun, and kick the balls instead.— Stefanie Schneider
The most wonderful Stefanie Schneider quotes to get the best of your day
How easy it is to forgive and loose the most violent offender, when in tears, they repent. How difficult it is forgiving our own self, for the eyes of our reflection will always expose our untold sins.
What is truth? Truth is what causes you to breathe again when lies have told you, you are already dead.
When I was young I would ask everybody what life was about.
Now it's clear to me that the image of each existence shows its own answer to that question.
The devil told my mind that my thoughts held no power;
and this seemed true until my thoughts I began to speak.
When I was younger I feared the dark, wondering what evil was watching me.
Now it's different, for now it's a game of sneaking the light back on and laughing at how quickly the evil fleas.
If you start embracing life's storms instead of hiding away from them, you'll stop fearing them all together; it is this way one becomes immovable.
Love is a funny thing, isn't it? The presence of it can bring you to save a foe, the absence of it can make you hurt your own flesh.
California always had been a dream to me.
I guess growing up in the 70s with movies like Vanishing Point, The Getaway, and Badlands formed the need for me to leave Germany for California. I'd never even visited before I moved there. When I moved to Los Angeles in 1996 right away I felt at home. Everything was in place and the dream was alive.
I always thought death was cruel, a silent destroyer of breath, of hope, of life. Now I understand it is physical death, the perception of it, the fear of it, which often saves us; for death marks the end of our flesh causing us to question the future of what we are.
I've been looking for answers all of my life.
Yes I realize now these are not what I needed. No, in fact, all I need is what I've decided on, in my heart to believe. In all the crossing confusion and haste of numerous opinion and stance, my own opinion has become my own boat from where I observe the raging opinions of the sea, relaxed, drinking my lemonade and feeling very amused by it all.
Let me give you a hint, young ones, what it is you will become as you grow.
What things make you cry, what things bring you pain, what things hurt you now, what things threaten your peace; what things you fear, what things bring you rage. It will be the opposite of these that you will become if you chose to accept your weakness, embrace the Son and simply grow.
Yes, I do feel the world revolves around me. After all, I am the main character of my own life.
A secret love is beautiful, sweet and sacred when it's just a light infatuation;
but when that person reaches over and touches you in the heart, making it alive in a way it has never known, that secret love becomes frightening, because you can never make them love you, you would never want to make them love you...but all the same, no matter which way you view it, they don't love you...and your heart doesn't know how to beat the same.
I feel really good when I haven't felt good for a long time and then suddenly I feel okay again. Nothing feels better than this.
Maybe the reason it's easier to shrug away one who has made us their secret love is simply because we know our own flaws; we know under the right light, that illusion they believe will fall, and show us for what we really are instead of who they secretly hope us to be.
It is most often not our strengths, our courage or our successes that bring two human hearts together, but it is often our shared vulnerability, our fears and our common failures that make us one.
What is it about a secret love that makes everything they do shine, everything they say sound like a sonnet and every expression they make perfect, when to everyone else you speak to they're quite ordinary. It's a cruel sort of thing.
It amazes me, how many words there are spoken, how many thoughts.
..yet each speaks freshly to me each time as if they were never once spoken before.
I love when it's me you look at with that laughter in your eyes.
It's reassuring, as if in letting me know my heart also had colors that you enjoy seeing. It makes me sparkle inside; I adore the times we sparkle together...to me nothing is better than those.
