Inspiration

In your lifetime, you deal with loss, anger, birth, love, joy, peace, war, and everything beyond. We are so easily shaped by the things around us, and sometimes the thing that shapes us the most, are words. Sharp, witty, flirtatious, spiteful, and moving, they touch us all in some way shape or form. It has always been my firm belief that as humans we keep bits of ourselves hidden away from the outside world, so that sometimes when we are lost we can go back to those secrets to remember who we intended to be. What better way to recall upon what makes you scream, laugh, cry or fill with awe, then a safe place to keep your favorite quotes, or highlighted text? As the great John Green once proclaimed, “Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.”

So here it is, all wrapped up into one, with a shiny, little bow on top. Read quotes by the greatest, and by the anonymous. a Submit your own, create your own. Enjoy the little pieces of yourself that make you smile, and remember who it is that you really are, or want to be. Also view videos of slam poetry to satisfy the soul. xx

“Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” – Joshua J. Marine

“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.”― John Green, Looking for Alaska

 

“When adults say, “Teenagers think they are invincible” with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”― John Green, Looking for Alaska

“Are you searching for purpose? Then write something, yeah it might be worthless. Then paint something then, it might be wordless, pointless curses, nonsense verses. You’ll see purpose start to surface, no one else is dealing with your demons. Meaning maybe defeating them could be the beginning of your meaning, friend.” -Twenty One Pilots
