Saturday Quotes

I don't know why, but quotes really are just something I love, have always loved, and always will.

I don't know if it is because of the truths they speak or words they express. I don't know if it is because of how they can punch one short meaning into a sentence so small. I don't know if it is just because they are so beautiful. But they touch me, heart and soul, and I can't escape them.

"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive - it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for the imagination then, would there? But am I talking to much? People are always telling me I do. Would you rather I didn't talk? If you say so I'll stop. I CAN stop when I make up my mind to it, although it's difficult."
~ L.M Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

  1. I have to admit I love this one best: "Make it happen. Shock everyone." That's my aim in life. (So far...I'm doing the *shocking* part right, but the *making* part is WIP). Quotes are awesome!
