PostSubject: Favourite Quotes   Tue May 02 2006, 06:38

We have had favourite film and music quotes, as well as Harry Potter books quotes, but what about all the other brilliant quotes out there. Do you have a specific quote you like?

Everyone seems to know mine and a few people would even quote me on it lol:

[b]"If confusion is the first step to knowledge then i must be a genius..."


Also another of my favourites is:

"Gaze long enough into the darkness and the light of beauty shall shine upon and sweetly kiss your brow and you will know what it is to be inspired..."


I have a few that i love but I will hand it over to you first. What quotes do you love (non film, music or book)

Though there is this one:

"The only thing we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

And also:

"Be sure to follow your heart and you'll never have to worry where your feet may take you."

PostSubject: Re: Favourite Quotes   Thu Jul 13 2006, 15:30

One of my one shots is full of my favourite quotes. Me, Marie and Amy have been talking quotes again so I thought I would add some here again:

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
This is how I feel about my close friends upon the site.

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."

How rare and wonderous when, in a flash of a moment, we discover we have found a friend
One I said a long time ago - one which Marie has adopted, again, it is to my friends here at HE

It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.

A candle doesn't lose its light by lighting another.

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new

Treat your friends as you do your pictures, and place them in their best light

A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked ((My friends have used this one on me a couple times))

Your chances of being struck by lightning go up if you stand under a tree, shake your fist up at the sky, and yell, "Storms suck!"

Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter, therefore, ye soft pipes, play on.

“My darling,” she said at last, “are you sure you don’t mind being a mouse for the rest of your life?”
“I don’t mind at all,” I said. “It doesn’t matter who you are of what you look like as long as somebody loves you.”

Nothing is too wonderful to be true.

Some things have to be believed to be seen.

A dream is a wish your heart makes. *sings*

The world is made of miracles. You only have to make time to see them.

By Mahatma Gandhi, my favourite quote is:

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

(When I first heard it, i thought: As if most of the world isn't blind anyway! - in a spiritual sense)

BUT:

This is my motto, literally, I always say this when people feel REALLY down or when I feel like it...it makes me feel better:

"Who cares what you're wearing?
From Main St or Saville Rd....
It's what you wear from ear to ear,
And not from head to toe,
That ma-a-atters........

YOU'RE NEVER FULLY DRESSED WITHOUT A SMILE!!!!!!!!

PostSubject: Re: Favourite Quotes   Fri Jul 28 2006, 11:13

I love the book A Corner of the Universe, and these are some quotes from the book. I really would reccomend it to anyone, it's a really good book and though it's not long, it's a great story.

I believe you are one of the people who can lift the corners of our universe.

The whole world passes by your porch.

I have found out how quickly my world can swing between what is comfortable and familiar and what is unexpected and what is unexpected and horrifying.

…lifting the corners of our universe…It’s all about changing what’s handed to you, about poking around a little, lifting the corners, seeing what’s underneath, poking that. Sometimes things work out, sometimes they don’t, but at lease you’re exploring. And life is always more interesting that way.

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.

To grow is to draw strength out of weakness, joy out of sorrow & unquenchable hope out of despair

Tinkerbell: You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I'll always love you, That's where I'll be waiting.

I'm not really sure who said either one but my teacher shared them with us.

"What would you do if you couldn't fail at it?"
I love this quote because it really makes me thing about all the things I don't do because I think I'll fail at it.

and

"Everything will be okay in the end, if its not okay its not the end."
This quote really helps me out on those bad days we all have, and it kind of makes everything brighter.

""But what is a Jersey girl? She's humble but ambitious. She's independent but family oriented. She likes eating pizza, having great hair, and wearing lots of mascara, but don't think for a moment she's not sophisticated. Jersey girls are about attitude. She's got a mouth on her. She says what she means. A Jersey girl is crunchy on the outside and soft in the center. She has the tenacity and drive of a New Yorker, but with the beauty of warmth and humility that being from Jersey is all about. She's got a nice, cheerful laugh. She's spunky and witty, and she handles competition very well. She's got confidence. Whatever work she does, she gives it her all."

and...

“I want to be remembered as the girl who always smiles even when her heart was broken.... And the girl who could brighten up your day even if she couldn't brighten her own...”

“When a girl is quiet, millions of things are running thro her head. When a girl is not arguing, she is thinking deeply. When a girl looks starely at you, she is wondering how long you will be around. When a girl answers "I’m fine", she is not fine. When a girl lays her head on your chest, she is wishing for you to be hers forever. When a girl calls you everyday she wants your attention. When a girl wants to see you everyday, she wants to be loved and pampered by you. When a girl says "I love you" she means it and when a girl says she misses you, no one in this world can miss you more than she does.”

We could all take a lesson from crayons, some are bright, some are beautiful, some are dull, some are short, some are tall, and some have weird names. But they all have to learn to live in the same box.

Don't tell me the sky's my limit, I've seen footprints on the moon

I know a girl who believes in herself, Believes that she can run faster, throw farther, jump higher. Some people say she should act like a girl. I say she already is. I believe in that girl. Because that girl is…

I'm the girl,
Who makes others feel loved
. . .
Even when that’s the last
Way I'd ever feel

You asked me what's wrong, I said nothing, but when you turned around a tear ran down my face and I whispered "everything..."

Tell someone there are 5 billion stars in the sky and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he just HAS to touch it.

Rumors are vicious,
Talk is cheap.
Words are dangerous,
Secrets you should keep.
Gossip is fake & will
make the deepest cut.
So learn from the past,
& keep your mouth shut.

I am eternally grateful.. for my knack of finding in great books, some of them very funny books, reason enough to feel honored to be alive, no matter what else might be going on.
