I can’t help myself. I am a girl who loves an inspirational quote. I love finding them under a Snapple cap, on my tea bags, dropping out of a fortune cookie (BTW, what ever happened to real fortunes in a fortune cookie? If I don’t get a quote, I get a cryptic message and lotto numbers now…??), or, seeing them as status updates on Facebook. Whether it is something as basic as “If you dream it, you can achieve it…”, or something silly like “If Britney can get through 2007, you can get through today…”, maybe something profound and in a foreign language like, “Sic itur ad astra… Thus you shall go to the stars.” I am a walking Pinterest board of quotational LoVE! I thought I would share a few of my ever changing favorites with you as we head ion to 2013. Maybe one of these will serve as your inspiration for a new year with a new outlook for you! Share some of your favorites in the comments, I LoVE hearing new ones!!!
“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
– Christopher McCandless
Do just once what others say you can’t do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again. -James Cook
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. -Steve Jobs
“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” -Douglas Adams
And… Probably the greatest quote to live by…
