Quote #192

From Molière…

Molière

“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”

[ Note: I hope this is true haha, because I consider my thesis a tree!  As opposed to a raging out of control beast (I hardly think it’s a beast, why something so animalistic for?  lol ]

Quote #190

From Dr Seuss (A Horton hears a who!)…

Dr. Seuss

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

[A/N:  Dr Seuss was one of my all time favourite children’s authors. As a kid, I found his stories very inspirational!  And still, after so many years, I am inspired all over again.]

Quote #186

From Louis Sachar (Holes)

Louis Sachar

“I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. Nothing in life is easy. But that’s no reason to give up. You’ll be surprised what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it. After all, you only have one life, so you should try to make the most of it.”

Quote #184

From William Makepeace Thackeray…

William Makepeace Thackeray

Life is a mirror: if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting.

[N.B.]  This is what I do every morning.  I smile.  I try and smile at everyone I see, because I know, I want to smiled at first thing in the morning.  Not to mention, I’ve always been taught that no matter how bad the night was, the day before was, it never hurts to share a smile, because then someone will show you some kindness in return.   So here: I offer you my smile 🙂

From Kurt Vonnegut (in Mother Night)….

Kurt Vonnegut

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”

Quote #178

From Marily Monroe…

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

Quote #177

From Sun Tzu (Art of War)…

Sun Tzu

“You have to believe in yourself. ”

[N.B] It feels like I need to be reminded of this over and over.  I have so many bridges to cross right now, but each one feels just as big as the other.  SO.  This is today’s famous quote.  Also from Sun Tzu!

Quote #174

From Eleanor Roosevelt…

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”

Quote #167

Gilda Radner

From Gilda Radner…

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.”

Quote #153

Douglas AdamsFrom Douglas Adams, (The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul)…

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”

Maya AngelouFrom Maya Angelou…

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.”

Carlos Ruiz Zafón

 

 

From Carlos Ruiz Zafón (The Shadow of the Wind)

“People tend to complicate their own lives, as if living weren’t already complicated enough.”
