words of wisdom

Sometimes I just need some good quotes in my life :) You know?
So, here we are...words of wisdom via weheartit

Do you have any favorite quotes or words of wisdom??  In middle school and in highschool I used to write good quotes down all of the time.  I have four huge journals just full of handwritten and cut out quotes. I love looking through them.


  1. Love all of these quotes! I don't think I could single out a favourite among them! (though Jim Jarmusch's quote really resonates!)
    Thanks for sharing them & have a great week

  2. A bit ago you posted Anne Frank's "Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy". I wrote it down and stuck it to my wall for the bad days.

    I also really love Isaiah 40: 31
    "But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint"

    I want to soar! :D

  3. I needed these quotes today.

  4. These quotes are great! I am always on the lookout for a quote, I even have a book full of quotes....there may be some stupid and/or funny ones, but it's a eclectic mix. lol. Some of the quotes can just snap me back to reality so I really enjoy reading them.

    I wanted to tell you about my old (Well not old, she's young) high school biology teacher. She has a blog up that I think you might enjoy. Her husband and her three beautiful children are in the process of adopting a little boy named Dexter Li from China. They are almost to the end of the adoption, but I thought you might want to see what processes they have to go through like you might have to go through with you little Pita. It's really amazing!



  5. Great wisdom! I love Proverbs and the quote from Elenore Roosevelt.

  6. thank you for sharing! i love some of these, i want to bookmark them and look at them everyday!

  7. the one about orginal art really spoke to me the most, and the two underneath.
    that quote is amazing, so true. so real in this creative world with internet adding to exposure!

  8. hey janel. I saw this on weheartit and its been my favourite quote ever since: 'she turned her cant's into cans and her dreams into plans.'

    I just think its so simple and sweet xXx

  9. We see things not as they are but as we are. Anais Nin.
    Love ya dad

  10. ya i'm a quote grl 2. journals & other books full, blog full, fridge full, scattered artwork full........

  11. Oh, how I love quotes!
    "Don't allow your wounds to transform you into someone you are not" - Paulo Coelho
    I also have a HUGE collection of those. 3 big notebooks filled with "wisdom"! I have had a series of post over my blog about them. You can take a look and get inspired here:
