My favorites from Self-Reliance -

"Insist on yourself; never imitate."


“Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.”

Re: Favorite Quote

Mine is Marilyn Monroe's change quote. Love it, love it, love it.


"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
