Life Quotes

July 19, 2011

“Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see life with a clearer view again.”


“Someone will always be prettier. Someone will always be smarter. Someone will always be younger. But they will never be you.”


“Be a fruit loop in a world of cheerios.”


“If people don’t like me for whatever I do, for being me, then that’s too bad. I don’t want to change to be something that I’m not for other people to like me.”


“Worry about loving yourself, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you.”


“Life is all about ass. You’re either covering it, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it or behaving like one.”


“Three things you cannot recover in life: The moment after it’s missed, the word after it’s said, and the time after it’s wasted.”


“You have to hurt in order to know. Fall in order to grow. Lose in order to gain. Because most of life’s lessons are learned in pain.”


“Don’t ever give up if you still want to try. Don’t ever wipe your tears if you still want to cry. Don’t ever settle for an answer if you want to know more. Don’t ever say you don’t love someone if you can’t let them go.”


“Life is never going to be perfect and you need to realize that. People you thought you knew are going to turn into strangers. The one you thought you loved may be the person you hate the most someday. You’re going to be happy and you’re going to fall. You need to know life isn’t perfect and that’s what makes it best of all. Live your life for today and don’t forget to believe in yourself.”


“There’s no need to rush. If some things are meant to be, it’ll happen. In the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason.”


“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

“Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you only have one life and one chance to do it all.”


“Monsters are real. Ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes they win.”


“Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.”

Why Books and Words Matter, part 1

July 7, 2011

Once you read a book, you are part of the club. Whether it be the club of Dr. Seuss or Tolstoy. Every book has a club. Every person who reads it is personally told the story by the author. That story becomes partially yours. You own it. It becomes a small piece of who you are.

Every book you read has some influence on you and you on it.

I like used books the best because all of the people that have read it before you brought some of their energy to that physical mass of paper and are giving it to you. You put some of your energy in as you read it. Books are meant to be passed on. They are tiny portions of who we are as human beings and how we understand what that means. Some books we like, some we don’t, but they are all part of the conversation. Once you read a book and think about it in the tiniest way, you have a voice in the conversation too. Forever.


Do you?
