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."

Shakespeare:

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.

"...because if the scanner sees only darkly, the way I do, then I'm cursed and cursed again. I'll only wind up dead this way, knowing very little, and getting that little fragment wrong too."

be who you are and what you feel,

"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.

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