Thirteen Quotes A Day

Some where throughout my sick day today I made a decision –  I’m going to find 5,000 quotes in one year to add to my inspiration board. Where this came from and why I decided to embark this I will never know. But this goal sent me onto a huge math rampage to find how many quotes a day I must post in order for this work and seem practical. Thirteen is a nice number to me. It’s unlucky, which makes it more fun, yet I like things that come in thirteens (or sevens…or nines, I’m not too picky which). So here’s Day One:

  1. “It’s a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.” – The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
  2. “My thoughts are like stars I can’t fathom into constellations.” – The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
  3. “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am 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.” – Marilyn Monroe
  4. “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss
  5. “When adults say, “Teenagers think they are invincible” with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.” – Looking For Alaska by John Green DSCN0783
  6. “…because nothing can last, not even the earth itself. The Buddha said that suffering was caused by desire, we’d learned, and that the cessation of desire meant the cessation of suffering. When you stopped wishing things wouldn’t fall apart, you’d stop suffering when they did.” – Looking For Alaska by John Green
  7. “This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe
  8. “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn
  9. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
  10. “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” – Albert Einstein
  11. “Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” – Frank Zappa
  12. “Go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company.” – Mark Twain
  13. “Life, he realize, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it’s in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile.” – The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
