Q is for Quotes and Questions

I haven't been blogging in a few days. I blame homework. Anyways, this is the perfect opportunity to put some of my favorite quotes. I love quotes, just so you know. I really have no idea why.

Some of my favorites are:
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind. - Dr. Seuss
Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous. - Albert Einstein
Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness and others have greatness thrust upon them. - William Shakespeare
Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth. -Mark Twain
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. - Albert Einstein
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. - Maya Angelou
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. - Maya Angelou
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so that you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Marilyn Monroe
Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. - G.K. Chesterton
Listen to the mustn'ts child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen child. Anything can be. - Shel Silverstein
A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words. -Donna Roberts
Where there is love there is life. -Mahatma Ghandi
I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing. -Neil Gaiman
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. - Henri J.M. Nouwen
Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever. - Walt Disney Company
To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. -Arundhati Roy
Perhaps the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything terrible is, in its deepest essence, something that feels helpless and needs our love. -Rainer Maria Rilke
If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you. -A.A. Milne
We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet. Even longer,' Pooh answered. A.A. Milne
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. - Gildna Radner
It happens, baby." Dad nodded and patted me on the hand, and then he read my mind. "You forget all of it anyway. First, you forget everything you learned - the dates of the Hay-Herran Treaty and the Pythagorean Theorem. You especially forget everything you didn't really learn, but just memorized the night before. You forget the names of all but one or two of your teachers, and eventually you'll forget those, too. You forget your junior class schedule and where you used to sit and your best friend's home phone number and the lyrics to that song you must have played a million times. For me, it was something by Simon & Garfunkel. Who knows what it will be for you? And eventually, but slowly, oh so slowly, you forget your humiliations - even the ones that seemed indelible just fade away. You forget who was cool and who was not, who was pretty, smart, and athletic, and not. Who went to a good college. Who threw the best parties. Who could get you pot. You forget all of them. Even the ones you said you loved, and even theones you actually did. They're the last to go. And then once you've forgotten enough, you love someone else. -Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

If you think I don't have tons more, you are wrong. I quote books I read, too. One of my favorites being the last quote by Gabrielle Zevin. Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac was pretty good.

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple. - Dr. Seuss

I don't have any questions, not really. Well, not right now. I probably will later. Have a good writing day!
