Quotes {of my life}


I love quotes. I love that other people say them. I love that I don't have to think about how to put my thoughts into cleverly arranged unique words that other people will want to post as their facebook status'. I love that quotes allow me to sum up how I'm feeling without actually having to say anything. This week I have been bombarded with quotes that have evoked some sort of emotion out of me.

"I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people." -John Lennon

"Being good, it turns out, isn't about being pleasing. As every feminist knows, being good is about being just to others while also being true to yourself."- Anonymous

"There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard.
No song I could sing
But I can try for your heart.
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things.
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepiatone loving.
Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? and where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving.
I'll tell you one thing its always better when we're together"
-Jack Johnson

"Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore." -Lady Gaga

"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot." -John Lennon

"I'd like to think the best of me was still hiding up in my sleeve." -John Mayer

"Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future." -Coco Chanel
