Just something only I would blog. Some of my favorite quotes

"La Vie Boheme!"
-RENT
"Time is clearly not our natural dimension. Thus it is that we are never really at home in time. Alternately, we find ourselves wishing to hasten the passage of time, or to hold back the dawn. We can do neither, of course, but whereas the fish is at home in teh water, we are clearly not at home in time. Because we belong to eternity. time, as much as one thing, whispers to us that we are strangers here."
-Neal A. Maxwell
"Do not look back and grieve over the past; for it is gone. Do not be troubled over the future. For it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."
-Ida Scott Taylor
"In life, trials and tribulations are mandatory. Misery is optional."
-One of the Apostles
"Relationships don't work the way they do on television and in the movies. Will they? Won't they? And then they finally do, and they're happy forever. Gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren't right for each other to begin with, and half of the ones who get married get divorced anyway, and I'm telling you right now, through all this stuff I have not become a cynic. I haven't. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate covered candies and, y'know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don't care, because I do believe in it. Bottom line: it's couples who are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is they don't let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time. If it's right, and they're real lucky, one of them will say something."
-Dr. Cox, Scrubs
"It is better to trust and sometimes be disappointed than to be forever mistrusting and be right occasionally."
-Neal A. Maxwell
"To be nobody but yourself- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else- means to fight the hardest battle which any human can fight; and never stop fighting."
-E. E. Cummings
"Regret makes you grow old, and bitterness poisons the people around you."
-One Tree Hill
"It's not about what you say. It's about what you do. If you don't like the person you've become, then do something about it. Because no one is gonna do it for you."
-One Tree Hill
"Time brings change and change takes time."
-Mindy Gledhill
"You can find the good in anybody. If you just give them a chance, benefit of the doubt. Sometimes people disappoint you, sometimes they surprise you, but you never really get to know them until you listen for what's in their heart. That's what we should do. So for all you skeptics out there, prepare to be surprised."
-One Tree Hill
"Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds."
-Shakespear
"Many people die with their music still in them. too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. And before they know it, time runs out."
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
"People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
-John C. Maxwell
"You can't save the damsel if she likes her distress."
-Gossip Girl:)
"At this moment, there are 6,470,818,761 people in the world. Some are running scared, Some are coming home, Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil man, at war with good. And some are good struggling with evil. Six billion people. Six billion souls. And sometimes... all you need is one."
-One Tree Hill
"Death is peaceful, easy. Life, is harder."
-Twilight
"Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you cannot bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all you are beyond the pain."
-Kahlil Gibran
"Those who grieve frequently find themselves alone. Missed is the laughter of children, the commotion of teenagers, and the tender, loving concern of a departed companion. The clock ticks more loudly, time passes more slowly, and four walls can indeed a prison make. I extol those who, with loving care and compassionate concern, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and house the homeless. He who notes the sparrows fall will not be unmindful of such service"
-Gordon B.
"Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief. We have seen our beaches, our parks, our forests littered with ugly refuse by those who evidently have no appreciation for their beauty. I have driven through thousands of acres of blackened land scourged by a fire evidently set by a careless smoker whose only concern had been the selfish pleasure gained from a cigarette."
-Gordon B.
"Use your head, and follow your heart."
-One Tree Hill

Geeze, everything from T.V. shows to Apostles. Great, real great to categorize those two together. Tee hee. Anyway, hope you enjoyed :)
