Quotes

Quote Left "'Choices' are the tokens that take us to places perhaps we never wished we'd visited, but we leave with greater knowledge and a firmer and clearer understanding of ourselves and the truth of it all. We are a book of life constantly re-editing our pages and at the root of it all, we rely on our internal compass - for some, this is an elusive marker to locate, but eventually it is found. Never judge a book by its cover." Quote Right

Quote Left "My mother is the strongest human I know and her blood runs through my veins. It pumps through my veins, hot as the lava that spills forth in Hell. She is formidable and she is in ...me. Always. This is at once both frightening and liberating. I know no other love like this - it is all consuming, feral, exhilarating wild. She says, one day I will meet my match. I asked her, who will that be? She responded, You will know. I wonder. Will it be my lover, or my child?" Quote Right

Quote Left "My muse is my daughter My strength is hers My muse is my mother Her strength is mine My muse are my sisters My strength is theirs My muse is my soul Our strength is eternal" Quote Right

Quote Left The greatest people of strength, the survivors, men and women alike, will always find a way to turn their weakness into strength, to learn from their greatest and smallest falls, how to rise and they will ultimately use their strength to face forward and move towards the Sun. Quote Right

Quote Left There is LIFE to be lived...after all is said and done. Women are built to withstand and bare the greatest pain in life, sometimes that will result in death, and perhaps if not death, a great loss of some incomprehensible proportion/s - but mostly, there is a strength that is inherently congenital to deliver beauty through something more substantial than looks and coquettish wiles. Quote Right

Quote Left Women have the greatest capacity to turn their weaknesses into strength, and for the ones who cannot see that in themselves, it is up to the other women who are aware of their own strength, to support and stand with them, to show them they have that in them, that strength. Quote Right

Quote Left Women are the greatest survivors. The Truth of all that is, that even when they have left this Earth, they leave their strength in their lineage. There are good men out there as well. But...as Kipling would tout, and he was spot on, "the female of the species is much stronger than the male. Quote Right

Quote Left What makes a man or woman, human? What makes a human put thoughts into words into stories? Surely, it is the Soul, the Higher Self that has the wish to convene with other souls. Is LOVE not the truest form of collaboration? When love transports a human out of the story into real life, then souls truly do meet. (Leanne Lovejoy-Burton writing as LadyLabyrinth) Quote Right

Quote Left "Perhaps, there is one thing that can defeat the Poet's heart, "Truth" in Love, because trust in Love is fallible without truth." (LadyLabyrinth, aka Leanne Lovejoy-Burton) Quote Right

Quote Left "Poetry is the unveiling of all things beautiful, ugly, and real under ectoplasmic gauze and glamour mists or raw and in your face, presenting an underlying hidden truth, but always with passion and an underlying presence of truth." (LadyLabyrinth, aka Leanne Lovejoy-Burton) Quote Right

Quote Left "Purple is swallowed regal royal and read, the Jade Green shallow ponds of wading tidal pools silently investigated, inquisitive slender fingers turn over smooth rocks and hard shells, eventually surprises - Asteroidea - in the oceans of a distant Turquoise harbour are found and kept; in the pages of dreams, saltwater mirrors fed and treasure boxes opened and plundered."

Quote Left ah, what happens to a man when he reaches the middle point, stasis turns inwards towards the future; ah, what happens to a man when he reaches crescendo, he drowns in her waves of bravado, each season humbled " Lovejoy-Burton (LadyLabyrinth 3rd Dec 2019) Quote Right

Quote Left "When you cut through all the BULLTWANG, what it really comes down to is, as always, shining through all your fermenting piles of detritus - the common quest, of every man, woman and child - the quest for pure LOVE fulfilled and returned. There is your LIGHT to walk towards and douse yourself in". Quote Right

Quote Left "Bugger the "Group" mentality. I say burn it up with a revolutionary act, start your own. If you didn't exist, there would be no world. You are your own world, your own Cosmos, you are luminescent, keep on shining - the people who matter will move towards your light. Leave the other befuddled fools walk in the dark holding hands, following tails like sheep. This is a fantastic expression of your individuality. Always keep speaking your TRUTH." Quote Right

Quote Left My mind's a minefield. To traverse it and make it out in one piece is a victory I'm trying to avoid. Let me load my paint gun with more colour. Reloading artillery now. Quote Right

“This is what I believe:

That I am I. That my soul is a dark forest.

That my known self will never be more

than a little clearing in the forest.

That gods, strange gods, come forth

from the forest into the clearing

of my known self, and then go back.

That I must have the courage

to let them come and go.

That I will never let mankind

put anything over me,

but that I will try always

to recognize and submit to

the gods in me

and the gods in other

men and women.

There is my creed.”

(D.H. Lawrence)

It appears that regularly (as in daily) the artwork in the pages of my poems/short stories and my Biography drops out, due to advertising or driver load capacity for the Poetry Soup Website.  My artwork/photography goes hand-in-hand with the stories I am telling through my poetry and short stories. It may be when you read my poetry/short stories you will see gaps where artwork/photos were and that is a shame ...

(considering I have paid Premium Membership to be able to upload music and art/photos -  and my photos/artwork are kept and uploaded from a fixed address and should not fall out/off the page. I have spoken to PS Admin on several occasions about this problem. Hopefully it will be rectified soon. I would be interested in hearing from any other Premium or Life Time PS member who has the same issues with their artwork/photos falling out/off their poems/short story pages).
