Let's face it: Life sucks. Usually.
One of the things that keeps me afloat during the bombardment of sucky times is quotes. There's something about the simplicity of so much power in so few words that reminds me of the strength that can be found in the small things. Small things such as us. So I've started a quote-book; a random hodgepodge of quotes, song lyrics, book snippets, etc that I find awe-inducing, to help me remember that the greatest strength can come from the smallest places.
"Life is infinitely stranger than anything the mind could invent..." Arthur Conan Doyle
"Keep Moving Forward." Walt Disney
"Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle." Christian D. Larson
"Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in the magic will never find it." Roald Dahl
"To each his own magic." THE SWEET, FAR THING, Libba Bray
"A small, clean part of me waits to warm and burst through the surface. Some quiet Melindagirl I haven't seen in months. That is the seed I will care for." SPEAK, Laurie Halse Anderson
My request of ya'll: I need more. If you have a favorite quote, song lyric, or book snippet, leave it in the comments for me. My word addiction thanks you!
