Thank you to www.brainyquote.com for helping track down a few of these.
‘For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.’ – Audrey Hepburn – I think that this quote makes a good point about beauty. Beauty isn’t about the way you look, its about who you are on the inside.
‘What love we’ve given, we’ll have forever. What love we fail to give, will be lost for all eternity.’ – Leo Buscaglia – In my Romeo and Juilet post I highlighted how important it is to love, and put your heart on the line. This quote really sums that up.
‘So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.’ ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby – This is one of the most beautiful quotes from Gatsby. I think that in some ways we shouldn’t fight the currents in the metaphorical body of water that is destiny. Life takes you wherever you must go, and if that is into the past so be it.
‘When he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars, and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun.’ ― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. I am currently a little bit Douglas Booth and Romeo and Juliet obsessed. This quote is beautiful. It sums up the star crossed lovers feelings for one another perfectly.
‘No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they’re pretty, even if they aren’t.’ – Marilyn Monroe. This reminded me of something I wrote a while ago about self esteem and growing up. I think it is important to be reminded how much of a good person you are because if you aren’t reminded sometimes you start to forget who you are.
‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. ‘- Alfred Lord Tennyson – I use this quote far to often but I still love it. Because it is true. Because it hurts to lose the person you love, but at least you loved them. The best you can do is remember that.
And a final quote from me. ‘When someone breaks your heart, there is something you can do to get back at them. Seize every single atom of love they gave you, and bottle it up. And then when you get older and wiser, you can open your bottles. Live out the memories. The love and the hurt. Live it all. And learn from it.’
