- “I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them. And we help them in return. Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true, but I know I’m who I am today because I knew you…” – For Good, Wicked
- “It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime so let me say before we part, so much of me is made from what I learned from you; you’ll be with me Like a hand print on my heart. And now whatever way our stories end I know you have re-written mine by being my friend…” – For Good, Wicked
- “Something has changed within me, something is not the same. I’m through with playing by the rules of someone else’s game. Too late for second-guessing, too late to go back to sleep. It’s time to trust my instincts, close my eyes: and leap!”“It’s time to try defying gravity. I think I’ll try defying gravity. And you can’t pull me down!”
“I’m through accepting limits ’cause someone says they’re so. Some things I cannot change, but till I try, I’ll never know! Too long I’ve been afraid of losing love I guess I’ve lost. Well, if that’s love it comes at much too high a cost!” – Defying Gravity, Wicked
These quotes have meant so much to me in the past month. They have helped me get over things, get back into things and forgive people I didn’t think I could forgive. It’s been a whirlwind, but I’m glad I have this musical to help me get through it.
