Favorite Sayings & Quotes

I was an English major in college, so quotes are something I have loved for a long time.  Sometimes it's the words that give you comfort, others give you motivation and some just remind you of the beauty of life.  Here are some of my favorites...I'll add more in time. 

I'd love to know what some of your favorites are! 


"While we try to teach our children all about life, they teach us what life is all about."


"There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood leads on to fortune, omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures." ~ Shakesphere
"Love is not love which alters when it alterations finds, it is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempts and is never shaken. Love alters not with time's brief hours and weeks, but bears it out." ~ Shakesphere

"Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact." ~ Henry James

"Change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like a stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass." ~ Steinbeck

"Time takes it all. Whether you want it to or not, time takes it all away, time bares it away. And in the end, there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again. ~ Stephen King


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great end of triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
