My favourite Couplandisms July 26, 2009

Filed under: Life in general — mel @ 7:26 pm

Just because I need to remember the bigger picture of things sometimes. Also, I realise I like Douglas Coupland‘s stuff more because of his bite-sized quotes of insight rather than the stories themselves. Which is why, he’s brilliant on Twitter.

Adventure without risk is Disneyland.
The capacity for not feeling lonely can carry a very real price, that of feeling nothing at all.
When you crop the photo, you tell a lie.
God is what keeps us together after the love is gone.
Telling people they look relaxed makes them look relaxed.
Failure is authentic, and because it’s authentic, it’s real and genuine, and because of that, it’s a pure state of being.
Is there anything in the world more annoyingly creepy than an unspoken dress code?
If you don’t change, then what’s the point of anything happening to you?
