Text Quotes
Almost nothing is more tedious than complaining about the weather  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I am weary of happiness, both as a word and as a concept  (Meghan Daum Quotes) What I want is to have people’s notion of adulthood no longer be so defined by being a parent. There is some kind of conventional wisdom that you’re not really a mature person until you become a parent.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Self-esteem, the kind that comes from finding the sweet spot between a healthy fondness for yourself and healthy self-skepticism, tends to get harder to come by the older we get.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) When I made my final reckoning with the decision not to have kids, I also decided that I would use at least some of my extra time to better the lives of kids who are already here.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Posting a brag, humble or otherwise, and then waiting for people to respond is the equivalent of having a conversation in which all you do is wait for your turn to speak.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Handwriting challenges aside, I love paper cards. I love the endless stewing involved in picking them out at the store. I love buying holiday stamps at the post office, and I love that ‘whoosh’ sound the cards make when I drop them into the mail slot.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Few targets of ridicule are as easy to hit as owners and handlers of competitive show dogs  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I grew up in a town where there were no adults over forty who weren’t somebody’s parents. It was, unfortunately, the kind of town that’s a great places to raise kids - that’s basically code for there are no adults here who are not parents. I had a few teachers who were kind of weirdo drama teachers and were hugely influential.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) If you do the things you enjoy and are good at, I really have a feeling that that will lead to having a fulfilling life, and people with fulfilling lives are able to be ‘good people.’  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I have bougainvillea and a magnolia tree outside my window. Not that anything will ever beat the view I had from my desk window in my little farmhouse in Nebraska. Just a dirt road stretching out as far as you could see, with prairie grass on either side.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) It’s great that Time is moving in the direction of validating those who, by choice or circumstance, will never be parents. But the point is not simply that society should stop judging those of us who don’t have children. It’s that society actually needs us. Children need us.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I was enamored of New York City intellectual life and was really into Philip Roth because I was raised by self-loathing Midwesterners who were from southern Illinois, who felt like fish out of water when they came to the East Coast when I was a kid.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Non-fiction about personal subjects is going to attract more user comments than a foreign correspondent writing from Syria - unfortunately.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) People have always taken photos of themselves, either with camera timers or by handing their Nikons over to strangers in foreign countries and then paying large sums to get them back.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I work really hard not to have a kitsch tone to any of my work, particularly radio stuff, which sometimes goes in that direction on certain programs.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) When there’s so much choice, it can get overwhelming and it’s hard to make a choice  (Meghan Daum Quotes) The search for happiness has long been a dominant feature of American life. It’s a byproduct of prosperity, not to mention the most famous line in the Declaration of Independence.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) If you must know, my parents came from pretty hardscrabble backgrounds in the southern Midwest. I certainly didn’t grow up poor, but I did spend my 20s and early 30s juggling temp jobs and choking on massive student-loan debt.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I respond to about a quarter of comments. It’s a good barometer of my mental health - when I’m healthy and busy, I don’t read them.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) My goal in life is to be content. By that I don’t mean fine or basically satisfied. I don’t mean settling. I mean, for last of better terms, feeling like I’m in the right life.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) We’re not handed situations based on our established likes and dislikes; we get what’s available.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I think whatever generation you’re in has a nostalgia for the generations past and the generations you weren’t in.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) The right way to win is to recognize that winning isn’t the end game, but rather the beginning of new opportunities - maybe even opportunities to help other people win.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Opinion is dominating, which is absolutely ridiculous - there wouldn’t be anything for people to have opinions about if there weren’t people out there gathering facts on the ground.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Because of social media, we have a lot of personal essays floating around; you see them on Facebook: everyone’s either reading them or writing them. Some of them are great; some of them are diary entries put forth as essays.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) I don’t confess in my work because to me, that implies that you’re dumping all your guilt and sins on the page and asking the reader to forgive you.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Though I probably shouldn’t admit this, the activities and pursuits in which I’ve achieved any measure of success are, without exception, activities and pursuits that came easily to me from the beginning.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Becoming a parent is always going to be a default setting. I truly believe there will always be more people who want to have children than who don’t.  (Meghan Daum Quotes) Mother’s Day, like motherhood itself, is fraught with peril. There are so many ways to get it wrong, so many opportunities to disappoint and be disappointed.  (Meghan Daum Quotes)
