Quotable Nonsense

Something a little different for you today, a post made entirely of quotes.  I've often thought about making entire posts or stories out of quotes from different places and such, so today here's one.  It's not entirely tight, but I like it just the same.  Maybe you'll find a few that speak to you in there too.

"Unforgiveness is choosing to stay trapped in a jail cell of bitterness, serving time for someone elses's crime..."

"Sometimes all you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess.  Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best."

"The 3 C's of life:  Choices, Chances and Changes.  You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change."

"Envy is an illusion.  When something good happens to someone else it takes nothing away from you."

"Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least."  Gothe

"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars."  Kahil Gilbran

"Sometimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength.  We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth and value, but because we finally realize our OWN."

"Just because something isn't happening for you right now doesn't mean it will never happen."

"Life isn't Burger King, you can't always have it your way."

"The less you give a damn, the happier you will be."

"At any given moment you have the power to say this is not how the story is going to end."

3 Simple Life Rules
1. If you do not go after what you want, you'll never have it.
2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no.
3. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.

"but the struggles make you stronger, the changes make you wiser, and happiness has it's own way of taking it's sweet time.  Life isn't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride."

"Success is not final.  Failure is not fatal.  It is the courage to continue that counts."

"Life is like riding a bicycle.  To keep your balance, you must keep moving."  Einstein

"Until you value yourself, you won't value your time.  Until you value your time, you won't do anything with it." M. Peck

"The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them."

"If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it."  Mary Engelbreit

"The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present."

You're not afraid of the dark-you're afraid of what's in it.
You're not afraid of heights-you're afraid of falling.
You're not afraid of the people around you-you're just afraid of rejection.
You're not afraid to love-you're just afraid of not being loved back.
You're not afraid to let go-you're just afraid to accept the reality that it's gone.
You're not afraid to try again- you're just afraid of getting hurt for the same reason.

"Dreams don't work unless you do."

"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past as better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be."  Marcel Pagnol

"It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all-in which case, you fail by default."  J.K. Rowling

"If I really was a bitch, I'd make your life a living hell, but instead, I'll just sit back and watch you do it yourself."

"What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable."  John Green

"If we did all the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves."  Thomas Edison

"Move on, it's just a chapter in the past.  But don't close the book, just turn the page."

"It's not enough to love the children, it is necessary that they are aware that they are loved."  St. John Bosco

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own.  No apologies or excuses.  No one to lean on, rely on or blame.  The gift is yours.  It is an amazing journey-and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.  This is the day your life really begins."  Bob Moawad

"People too weak to follow their own dream, will ALWAYS find a way to discourage yours."

"I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."

Hope that was a little fun for you.  Go collect your own thought pile and dump them on your blog.
