To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on September 8, 2014 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day

I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what degrades me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal.

    I need to take on this attitude.

    I find that I have adopted this mentality as I get on in my later years.
    Not that I am more cynical in my old age but I just see things more clearly and how attitudes seem to be changing for the worse.

      Dear Nan, I originally posted this as a Meryl Streep Quote. This is a misinformation that was wide-spread on facebook these days and it is totally wrong.The above text was written and published by the great Portuguese Author, José Micard Teixeira.

    I strive for this, but find those who think this way behave so BEFORE determining whether or not the person standing before them converses or acts. Therefore not giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    I have come at this point in my life when nothing more matters because I am already in the twilight time. In other words I am already fed up of negative things that happened in the past or are still happening at present. I don’t care anymore. I have forgiven all those who have done me wrong as I want also to be forgiven. Life goes on and I like to live it positively according to the will of God.

    I like it but this Quote seems like arrogant behaviour

      I don’t look at this as arrogant behavior, but as assertive behavior, because sometimes you have to stand up for yourself. You can’t just let people walk all over you…
