What are some of your favorite quotes?

[ Edited ]

I thought it be fun if we all shared our favorite quotes or sayings or something you live by or would like to live by. No matter what they are. Sometimes they can be inspiring :smileywink:

 

This is one of my all time favorite!

My sentiments exactly, that's why I spent some lonely Friday/Saturday date nights - or nights with friends. George truly was a wise man.

It is your ATTITUDE,

not your APTITUDE,

that determines your ALTITUDE,

among the MULTITUDES.

I love this post! I'm always posting quotes on tumblr! I have sooo many favorite quotes but here are 2:

 

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

― Marilyn Monroe

 

"Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything."

"Eating a tangerine is real enlightenment." - Hardcore Zen by Brad Warner. 

 

The full quote behind the spoiler, for context:

Spoiler
My wife had given me a mikan, a kind of Japanese tangerine, for lunch that day—and I sat at my desk and started to peel it. As I watched the peel come free from the fruit, I was struck by how beautiful it was. It was one tangerine, perfect in its own way. The orange color leapt out at me, as if it was glowing from the inside, brighter than a neon light. The intensity of its beauty was almost painful to me. I’ve seen some beautiful sights in my life: sunset over the Pacific from the western shore of Maui, Mount Kilimanjaro rising above the plain as elephants and giraffes saunter by in the foreground, the tranquil dignity of ancient Buddhist temples. But at that moment nothing could compare to that little tangerine in my hands. I felt so grateful just to be me, just to be sitting at my desk, just to be able to peel and taste and eat that tangerine. No one else would ever taste that tangerine.
When I got back home I sent Nishijima another e-mail telling him about the tangerine and thanking him for setting me straight. The next day I got his reply: “Eating a tangerine is real enlightenment.” It was something he really didn’t need to say. Still, I was glad he did.

Oh, loved that. So many good one-liners and things in that movie, a treasure trove of quotable remarks.

 

This one is not an exact quote but goes something like this..

"I'm not one to repeat gossip, so listen closely the first time"

Am I close with that laurenkitzel?

 

One of my all time favorite movies.

 

"My colors are bashful and blush"

"Her colors are pink and pink!"

This is so me and my Mother it's not even funny, well, actually, it is.
