Quotes!! (part 1)

These are just a collection of my favorite quotes. I love quotes, I have an entire wall in my house dedicated to quotes. Also, thanks to all my pals who contributed quotes (love y’all)! I think we can learn a lot from quotes. Some are motivational, some make you feel all the feels and some are just pretty.

 

“I feel myself shining in the dark….I am arrayed. I am prepared. This is the momentary pause; the dark moment. The fiddlers have lifted their bows….This is my calling. This is my world. All is decided and ready….I am rooted, but I flow….’Come’, I say, ‘come’.”

–All the Bright Places quoting Virginia Woolf

 

“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.” —J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

 

“ I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”

-Kurt Vonnegut

 

“If you want to see results you’ve never seen, be willing to do things you’ve never done.” –Hannah Brencher

 

“I learned that there is good in this world, if you look hard enough for it. I learned that not everyone is disappointing, including me, and that a 1,257-foot bump in the ground can feel higher than a bell tower if you’re standing next to the right person.” – All the Bright Places

 

“I think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the universe’s way of providing contrast. There have to be a few holes in the road. It’s how life is.” –The Truth About Forever

 

“May your eye go to the Sun. To the wind, your soul. You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.” –All the Bright Places

 

Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.” –The Picture of Dorian Gray

 

“He made her feel like more than the sum of all her parts.” -Eleanor and Park

 

“‘Are you ready?’ Klaus asked finally.

No,’ Sunny answered.

‘Me neither,’ Violet said, ‘but if we wait until we’re ready we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives, let’s go.'”

—Daniel Handler, The Ersatz Elevator

 

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” –JK Rowling

 

“The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open.” –Chuck Palahniuk

 

“You are stronger than you seem, braver than you believe, and smarter than you think.” –Winnie the Pooh

 

“Oscar Wilde once said that to live is the rarest thing in the world, because most people just exist, and that’s all. I don’t know if he’s right, but I do know I spent a long time existing, and now, I intend to live.” –The Beginning of Everything

 

“This too shall pass.”

 

“What if life could be this way? Only the happy parts, none of the terrible or even mildly unpleasant. What if we could just cut out only the bad and keep the good…so that good is all we ever have around us.” –All the Bright Places

 

“People are capable, at any time in their lives, or doing what they dream of.” –The Alchemist

 

“It matters not how you strait the gate/ How charged with punishments the scroll/ I am the master of my fate/ I am the captain of my soul.” –Invictus

 

“Your dream does not have an expiration date. Take a deep breath, and try again.”

 

“We cross our bridges as we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and the presumption that once our eyes watered.” –Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

 

“In dreams, I meet you in warm conversation / We both wake in lonely beds in different cities / And time, is taking its sweet time erasing you / And you’ve got your demons, and darling they all look like me.” –Sad Beautiful Tragic

 

I want you to remember who you are, despite the bad things that are happening to you. Because those bad things aren’t you. They are just things that happen to you. You need to accept that who you are and the things that happen to you, are not one and the same.” —Colleen Hoover, Hopeless

 

“Forgiving isn’t something you do for someone else. It’s something you do for yourself. It’s saying, ‘You’re not important enough to have a stranglehold on me.’ It’s saying, ‘You don’t get to trap me in the past. I am worthy of a future.’” —Jodi Picoult, The Storyteller
