Hey there, everyone

I want to write quotes on my bedroom wall, but I haven’t come across any good ones lately,
can you help me out?

You can put any quote you want…from movies, books, songs, anything. Just write a good phrase! You can put who said it if you want, but it’s not necessary.

“overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary”

Hi

I have quite a few…I like to collect good quotes…

“When life leaves us blind, love keeps us kind” - Linkin Park, The Messenger

“Sanity and insanity overlap a fine gray line”

“Save the Earth, it’s the only planet with Chocolate”

“Growing old is inevitable…Growing up is optional”

“Wouldn’t it be nice if there were an Escape key for all of our problems?”

“Friends are the flowers in the garden of life”

“Every day is a gift, that’s why they call it the present.”

“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” - Alexander Graham Bell

“Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect, it means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.”

“So don’t say you’re happy because everything’s all right, be happy because everything sucks but you’re doing just fine!”

“Woman was born of a man’s rib; not from his feet to be stepped on, not from his head to be superior- from his side to be equal, under his arm to be protected and next to his heart to be loved.”

“Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.” - Will Smith, Hitch

“Love is just a word, until someone comes along and gives it a meaning”

“Dream big, work hard and don’t be an asshole” - Mike Shinoda

“Mother’s hold their children’s hands for a while, and their hearts forever”

“Live well
Laugh often
Love much”

“Each moment of your life is a picture which you hadn’t seen before and which you will never see again. So make each moment beautiful and lovable…”

“Sometimes you have to fall from the mountain to realize what you are climbing for. Obstacles are put in our way to see if what we really want is worth fighting for. From every wound there is a scar. And every scar tells a story. A story that says, I SURVIVED.”

“Ever lie in your bed with the next hundred things you have to do running through you head? Ever lost touch and let a good friendship die because you never had time to call and say hi? When you ran fast to get somewhere, you miss half of the fun getting there. When you worry and hurry through your day, it’s like an unopened gift thrown away. Take time to listen to the rain slapping on the ground or gaze at the sun in the fading sky. Life’s not a race. Do take it slower. Hear its song before it’s over.”

“Creativity is a gift from God, all we do is keep trying and wait for the idea to appear.”

“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with” - Michael Jackson

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities” - Dumbledore, Harry Potter

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” - Dumbledore, Harry Potter

“Make it Count” - Jack Dawson, Titanic

“Can you exchange one life for another? A caterpillar turns into a butterfly, if a mindless insect could do it, why couldn’t I? Was it any more unimaginable than the sinking of the Titanic?” - Old Rose, Titanic

Sorry about the length…

Don’t worry at all about the lenght!
I kind of collect qutes too (and I put the best on my wall), so here are some more for you:

“worry is like a rocking chair. It will give you something to do but it won’t get you anywhere”
“life begins at the end of your comfort zone”
“whatever you are, be a good one”

“when you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is die and bleak, there is always hope”
“your heart is a weapon the size of your fist. Keep fighting. Keep loving”

The Boy Scout in me is coming out with this one; ““A Scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens.” ~ Lord Baden-Powell”

This is basically the internet in a nutshell; “That’s the whole trouble. You can’t ever find a place that’s nice and peaceful, because there isn’t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you’re not looking, somebody’ll sneak up and write “Fuck you” right under your nose.” ~J. D. Stalinger

Most of my favorite quotes are taken from song lyrics, like; “Time takes us all so why am I not just living for today?” ` The Used

And I have part of this lyric tattooed on my arm, by Rise Against; "Life for you has been less than kind, so take a number, stand in line. We’ve all been sorry, we’ve all been hurt, but

I love quotes and lyrics - I often just search quote websites by randomly clicking on topics and quote accounts on twitter are also a good source of inspiration.

There are so many to choose from, but a couple that I have to hand, which I particularly like (and that aren’t about penguins cos I know they might not be to everyone’s taste) are:

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” ~ Unknown

“You have achieved success if you have lived well, laughed often and loved much” - Unknown

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up” - Thomas Edison

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new” - Albert Einstein

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” - Voltaire

Sharing these has now made me want to find more and keep writing them out! Good luck finding some you like and of course make sure you leave room on your wall for plenty of LP lyrics! :smiley:

Here is a few that I like. Their lyrics but it doesn’t seem to matter. =)

“Walk the dark path/Sleep with angels/Call the past for help/Touch me with your love/And reveal to me my true name” Nemo - Nightwish

“Oh, now his love’s a memory, a ghost in the fog/He sets the sails one last time saying farewell to the world/Anchor to the water, seabed far below/Grass still in his feet and a smile beneath his brow” The Islander also by Nightwish xD

But this must be my favorite xD
"I am a little bit insecure, a little unconfident/'Cause you don’t understand, I do what I can/But sometimes I don’t make sense…" I think everyone recognizes Faint. :smiley:


#13

Heres a few good ones i’ve found latly =)

“Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny”

"They sleep, we grind. They dream, we shine. "

"It’s not how you fall that counts…its how you get back up. "

"The most important thing you can believe in is you. "

"The harder you work the harder it is to surrender. "

"The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. "

Besides the first one…i found these one Dwane " The Rock " Johnsons twitter page…some of them are his own quotes and some of them are quotes he has found and uses. =)

“When God made Eve from the rib of Adam and Eve was weak, and loosed the raven on the world, and the raven was called Sin and the first sin was intercourse.”

It’s not the quote itself, rather they way it’s said by Margaret White in the 2002 Carrie remake. She’s absolutely calm and feels so righteous it gives me the creeps.


#15

My favs are:

«When a man dies it’s a tragedy, when millions of men die, it’s a statistic»

«In life, only two things are sure: death and taxes»

«We all die, but the goal isn’t to live forever, it’s to create something that will»

I have others but I don’t really remember…


#16

“Do it all and then some”


#17

My favorite quote comes from chester:

You can’t be afraid of people who are willing to hurt you, bcuz if you fear life you will never live.
