DAY 6: Favorite Quote


Hmmm… not an easy  question, considering I grew up with a habit of collecting quotations from different books I’ve read, dialogues of characters I’ve watched in movies or tv series, and also those quoted by famous and non-famous people alike. I remember having a list of all my favorite quotes encoded and saved in my computer.

So to answer this question, I’ll share a few of my favorites. 🙂

“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”

“To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation and when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” ― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist

“People think that being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world” Kim Culbertson

“Read, but not to remember everything. Read because that 1% that you remember has the potential to change your life” —  Anonymous

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”C.S. Lewis

“If you measure your success by someone’s failure, then you are also a failure. If you aim to be like someone else, then you are limiting yourself on what you can truly achieve. But if you aim to improve on what you have already achieved, I consider you a winner because winners always want to do well in what they do without limiting themselves .” —  Anonymous

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.” — Elizabeth Bennet, Pride and Prejudice
