90% out of every time I surf internet, I somehow ended up taking a look at good quotes and sayings. Now I think there's some few good reasons for that. For me, feeling good or bad, if I feel like sharing my thoughts on my favorite social networks (of course, Facebook and/or Twitter), I'd look around online for related quotes and BOOM..it's there as my updates. It is not me to input 'exactly', word by word what happened or how I feel. That is a bit too 'revealing', at least, in my view. So, YES, I am a fan of some good reads, and thinking I should share my 10 best favorite quotes and the reasons why I love them with you. Here they are;
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." — Dr. Seuss
The reason: Despite the fact that the quote is truely sad, it contains the unavoidable truth of life. I can feel the bitterness as strongly as it's sweetness.
"If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything." — Malcolm X
The reason: This is the hard truth that if we don't learn by other's mistakes or experience, we will learn it the hard-miserable way.
"The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for." — Bob Marley
The reason: The day I read this quote I thought, 'How true!'. I really love the tone the quote gives out, a little sweet, a bit bitter. Just like life ifself.
"Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet." — Bob Marley
The reason: I have always thought of Bob Marley as a very free minded individual, and the word 'freedom' popped up in my head every time I hear or think of Bob Marley. This quote of his just somehow clarifies it.
"If you're looking for sympathy you'll find it between shit and syphilis in the dictionary." — David SedarisBarrel Fever: Stories and Essays)
The reason: I love that this quote is so funny and straight to the point. A really good thing to remind myself when 'self-pity' want to show it's ugly face.
The reason: Basically I love everything that reminds me of God's presence. It helps me be intouch with the very fact and stay hopeful.
"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win." — Mohandas K. Gandhi
The reason: I love good fighters. Ones that would fight with dignity diligently, without giving up. So, thumb up for this quote.
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." — Martin Luther King Jr.The reason: The hardest part of being a responsible human being is to stand up for something regardless. I've written in some of my posts about this. I wish all of us luck of getting over useless 'other people's opinions' and get serious with your lives. Regardless.
"You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do." — Eleanor Roosevelt
The reason: Just think this quote is so true. Keep this in mind and I feel a lot more relax any given days.
"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." — Martin Luther King Jr.
The reason: Another great truth. After all being said and done, enemies will be the last person we care to think about no matter what bad they did to us, but 'friends'?...
