Thursday quotables is a meme hosted on Book Shelf Fantasies. It’s designed to feature a quote or passage that you’ve come across in your reading during the week. I’ve hijacked to encompass any quote.
My first choice is from the musical Hamilton. Fantastic musical in general but one of my favourite songs is Wait For It.
I am the one thing in life I can control,
I am inimitable, I am an original
I’m not falling behind or running late
I’m not standing still, I am lying in wait
– Aaron Burr (Lin Manuel Miranda)
I love these lines in particular because whenever I start to compare where I am in life to friends and colleagues it’s okay that I’m not married yet, or I don’t have kids or own my own house. I don’t need to compare myself to anyone or anything I’ll do it when it’s right for me.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
