Accept and Love yourself for who you are, including all your flaws.

I'm pretty obsessed with Eleanor Roosevelt quotes. An amazing woman.

-Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

-Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.

-Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.

And my FAVORITE one:

-We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.

And when I stand on these tables before you
You will know what all this time was for-John Mayer

He's talking about how he spent years 6 hours each day crammed in his little room practicing guitar and writing songs when his parents and everyone around him told him he should be making friends. I find it inspiring that he found his "thing" and really capatalized on it instead of wasting all his time worrying and complaining about why he was so socially ackward and not well liked. (i do realize that fame has made him a doushe but trust me cuz I've followed him for a long time he wasn't always this way.)

heard THIS quote lately. don't know who wrote it, but it really stuck out to me and is inspiring
"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."

marylin monroe had lovely quotes aswell, so true
"No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they're pretty, even if they aren't."

"Everyone's a star and deserves the right to twinkle"

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.

The key to failure is trying to please everyone

toffeexo 05-03-2010 10:30 AM

be who you are and what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

"A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears"

"Today I escaped all difficulty; or rather, I have cast out all difficulty, for difficulty is not external, but rooted in my judgments"
-Marcus Aurelius

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
"I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward."
"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
-Thomas Edison

I've always liked quotes by Edison, especially the first one. It's just full of optimism. It's also nice to see that even pretty smart people have 'failed' before. But more importantly, realizing how much our perspective can influence our thoughts is always refreshing, and how I should never only look badly on something I've done but rather learn from it as well.

I believe it goes like this, or something very similar:
"A man is usually about as happy as he makes up his mind to be"
-Abraham Lincoln
I try my best to live by this rule.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do. - Confucius

"Never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it."

"The way I see it, you can be anything you want to be. If your mind can perceive it, and your heart truly believes it, then you are half way there and all you have to do is do it." -- Unknown

Wouldn't it be nice if life was this easy ? lol

I like these. Kind of reminds me of the saying, "what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger".

You can never be happy at the expense of the happiness of others.
