Sometimes I will come across a quote that really strikes me. One of those quotes where I just have to write it down because it seems so perfect I don't want to forget it. Even if I do get the quote down somewhere I may lose track of it among the clutter of my life, but here are some quotes that have stayed with me...

"Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others." - Audrey Hepburn

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

What's your favourite quote/s?


  1. "To be one's self, and unafraid whether right or wrong, is more admirable than the easy cowardice of surrender to conformity." –Irving Wallace

    "To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it." - Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

    “Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” –G.K Chesterton

    I have collected way too many quotes, but those are a few of my favorites.

  2. "Success flourishes only in perseverance, ceaseless, restless perseverance." Baron Von Richtofen (aka The Red Baron). Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower!

  3. I love quotes too!

    Here's a good one: "Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right." Issac Asimov.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog:)

  4. I am real lover of quotes, and I simple have too many favourites to name. But one absolute treasure is this one from Emerson, "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

  5. My favorite comment comes from one of my favorite authors, Raymond Chandler:

    "I knew one thing: as soon as anyone said you didn't need a gun, you'd better take one along that worked."

    So true!

  6. “I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it.”
    Rosalia de Castro

  7. My 12th grade British Literature teacher would always have a quote of the day on the board for us, and I loved them!

    Here's a good one:
    "The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none." -Thomas Carlyle

  8. I love, love, love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote. It is currently outshining any that I can think of right now.

    I wanted to give you a blog award of your choice over at my blog! Come pick out some blog bling!

  9. Oh, that's a great quote, and so true!

    I do remember a Dr. Phil episode (roll your eyes here) where he said, "You teach people how to treat you." I liked that. Even though I don't watch his show anymore, that stuck with me.

  10. Great quotes everyone, thanks for sharing :)
