Thomas Slatin Quote


“Minutes of daylight, as the minutes turn into hours, is the parlance of our time. Everytime I look in the mirror, I see myself staring right back at me; a fleeting glimpse of myself going round and round on a carousel cusp of why.” —Thomas Slatin, Belong

  2. This quote has got me doing a lot of self reflection. I can’t thank you enough for sharing it Tom.

  3. Indeed, whenever we look into the mirror we are looking into the past in some way. This is a very powerful idea.

  4. That was very deep, I have many whys as well.. in my case they don’t come from the mirror, but from watching me and watching all around myself. Everytime I get more convinced that the idea of me is not really mine and I find out that i’m different that the person that I believe i’m and that I really don’t know me.

  5. Indeed, we all have those moments when we have a lot of whys. I find the quote very relatable.

  6. “Minutes of daylight, as the minutes turn into hours, is the parlance of our time.” Those are some of the most beautiful words I have ever heard.

  8. The mirror always give us a good account of ourselves. Every minutes of our lives gives us an account of what we have become.

  12. The cycle of life I suppose. What is trending now may trend later on. As they say, Life is nothing more than a cycle. That said, it is all up to us how we will take advantage of our time here. Make the best out it. I should say.

  13. Time is gold that’s why we need to make the most of it before we regret what we didn’t do when chances came to us. Great and powerful message.

  14. As Dalai Lama say, The purpose of our lives is to be happy. Make the most our of our life.

  15. We’ll never know when our time will come so make sure we live life to the fullest. We should always appreciate ourselves and the people around us. We might find ourselves stuck with questions of why, but we can always look at a different perspective and see ‘where’ and ‘how’ can we significantly spend this God-given time.

  16. Everytime I look in the mirror, I see the results of my actions staring at me. We should make the best of out time
