My Favorite Quotes

The pen is mightier than the sword. And quotes from talented people are always a good idea to read. (They also look beautiful in journal spreads.) In my opinion, the best quotes are those that resonate with you a long time after you’ve read them. Over the years, I’ve saved a few of my favorite ones and wanted to share their wisdom with you. Might I suggest reading these quotes with a cup of tea or coffee?

Maybe the little things that you actually consider your weakness are actually the things that most people treasure most about you. Maybe you hate that you care too much… Or that you wear your heart on your sleeve… But seriously, some people think that’s the best damn thing about you. We all have different little things that make up who we are, we don’t need to change those things, but we can choose who we share them with.

The Little Things

What if grass is greener on the other side, / Because it’s always raining there, / Where the ones who never fail to give, / Hardly have enough to spare, / Where the people with the broadest smiles, / Have pillows filled with tears, / And the bravest ones you’ve ever known, / Are crippled by their fears, / It’s filled with lonely people, / But they’re never seen alone, / Where those that lack real shelter, / Make you feel the most at home, / Maybe their grass looks greener, / Because they’ve painted on its hue, / Just remember from the other side, / Your grass looks greener too.

e.h.

She said, “I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
