Prompt 46 ~ Endings
It’s the last prompt of the year and also the last prompt for 26n. As we head towards the end of 2011, I thought it might be apposite to stop and reflect, if you so wish, about what endings mean to you. Never mind resolutions and where do we go from here, but really just try and be with the moments of ending. Here are some quotes to get the juices flowing, whether you agree with them or not. Might I suggest that the disagreements are the juiciest places from which to start your writing and reflecting.
“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.” – Orson Welles
“The beginnings and endings of all human undertakings are untidy.” – John Galsworthy
“That’s something I think is growing on me as I get older: happy endings.” – Alice Munro
“True love stories never have endings.” – Richard Bach
“What the caterpillar calls an ending the rest of the world calls a butterfly.” – Lao Tzu
