It’s a fact that I live my life through quotes.. Some have even criticized me on it. I don’t know why though, because we learn from what we read, what we see, what we hear.. Some of the best quotes, are from people closest to you. Here is a list of my favorites:


“Not all who wander are lost: -J.R.R. Tolkien

“What we see will last only a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever.” -2 Corinthians 4:18

“When you Love Life, Life will Love you back.” -anon

“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.” -anon

“The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out Why.” -Mark Twain

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” Lao Tzu

“Rules are made for people who arent willing to make up their own” -Chuck Yeager

“People who are sensible about love are incapable of it.” -Douglas Yates

“Great leaders give everyone something to believe in, not something to do.” -Simon Sinek

“Sometimes life will grab you by the balls and that’s when you have to ask yourself, ‘Do I even have balls, and if so, why are there two?'” ~Chelsea Handler

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the ones who think differently. While some may see crazy, we see genius.” -Steve Jobs

“An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind” -Ghandi

“A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.” – J. R. R. Tolkien

“God would never put a dream in your heart, if he was not going to put it in your hands.” -Bryant-Lee Phillips

“Take life into your own hands and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame.” -Erica Jong

Sex & the City:

“Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens.” ~Carrie

“Eventually all the pieces fall into place….until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason”~Carrie

“Yes, I’d like a cheeseburger, please, large fries and a cosmopolitan.” ~Carrie

“Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free til they find someone just as wild to run with them.” ~Carrie

“I’m gonna say the one thing you aren’t supposed to say. I love you, but I love me more.” ~Samantha

“I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you that you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”~Carrie

“The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t. But, in the end, they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.” ~Carrie

“Maybe mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away” ~Carrie

“I don’t believe in the Republican party or the Democratic party. I just believe in parties.” ~Samantha

“Did I ever really love Big or was I addicted to the pain, the exquisite pain, of wanting someone so unattainable?”~Carrie

Charlotte: It’s because women really just want to be rescued. Carrie: (voiceover) There it was. The sentence independent single women in their thirties are never supposed to think, let alone say out loud.

“But have women settled for a sugar free existence as well? We accept Tasti-Delight instead of real ice cream. E-mails instead of love songs. Jokes instead of poetry. It’s no wonder that when faced with the real thing, we can’t stomach it. Is it something we could learn to digest? Or have we become romance-intolerant?” ~Carrie

“Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.” ~Carrie

“Apparently, one woman’s Titantic is another woman’s love boat.” ~Carrie

“The universe may not always play fair, but at least it’s got a hell of a sense of humor.” ~Carrie

“It’s not logical. This is love. It’s not logical. It’s right in my heart. I feel it’s right.” ~Carrie

“When men attempt bold gestures it’s generally considered romantic. When women do it, it’s often considered desperate or psychotic.” ~Carrie

Greys Anatomy: 

CRISTINA: “I need a drink, a man, or a massage. Or a drunken massage by a man.”

MEREDITH: “If we’re lucky, we realize in the face of everything.. in the face of life.. the true dream is being able to dream at all.”

MEREDITH: [narrating] “The early bird catches the worm; a stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to ‘seize the day’. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying.”

MEREDITH: [narrating] “It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after — just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away.

MEREDITH: “The ties that bind us are sometimes impossible to explain. They connect us, even after it seems like the ties should be broken. Some bonds defy distance. And time. And logic. Because some ties are simply meant to be.”

MEREDITH: “At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing, where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, is usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we’ve chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them, the people that are still with you at the end of the day – those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.”

MEREDITH: “Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way. Because without it, I don’t know; maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.”

MEREDITH: “Communication. It’s the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the harder it becomes to know what to say. Or how to ask for what we really need.”

MEREDITH: “At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That’s how we’re made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them.”

MEREDITH: “Whoever said ‘What you don’t know can’t hurt you,’ was a complete and total moron. Because for most people I know, not knowing is the worst feeling in the world.”

MEREDITH: [narrating] “At the end of the day, there are some things you just can’t help but talk about. Some things we just don’t want to hear, and some things we say because we can’t be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say. They’re what you do. Some things you say because you have no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves.

MEREDITH: [narrating] “Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.”

PRESTON: “Cristina, I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there, in sickness and in health. I could say till death do us part. But I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. I’m a heart man. Take ’em apart, put ’em back together, hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner. My lover. My very best friend. My heart. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands, I promise you… me.”


“maybe I should stop waiting around for moments to happen” -Rachel: Friends

Ted:  I used to believe in destiny, you know? I’d go to the bagel place, see a pretty girl in line, reading my favorite novel, whistling the song that’s been stuck in my head all week, and I’d think, “Wow, hey, maybe she’s the one?!” And now I think “I just know that bitch is gonna take the last whole-wheat everything bagel.”
Ted:  No, it’s more than that. I’ve stopped believing. Not in some depressed, “I’m gonna cry during my toast” way, not in a way I even noticed until tonight, it’s just everyday I think I believe a little less, and a little less, and a little less, and that sucks.
Robin: You’re Ted Mosby. You start believing again.
Ted:  In what…destiny?
Robin: Chemisty. If you have chemistry, you only need one other thing.
Ted: What’s that?
Robin: Timing….but timing’s a bitch -How I Met Your Mother
