I've been collecting quotes for several years. I became so addicted I noticed I had a folder with +5k quotes in it. I think it's time to start sharing!
 
Care to post some of your favourite quotes? :)

I write quotes a lot in my commonplace book. I'm only slightly addicted though.

 

I love basically everything Neruda ever wrote, but this is the Neruda quote that rolls through my mind the most:

I-love-you-as-creation-dark-things-are-t

 

This one sums up my entire life:

 

quote-Vincent-Van-Gogh-for-my-part-i-kno

 

And then a billion or so more.

What makes me so obsessed with quotes is that I find it interesting some people are/were able to put it down on words other people feelings/lives, sometimes without feeling/living themselves that situations.

When I read something that describes me so well I have to keep it, like I'm going to keep that Neruda one.

They're supposed to be inspirational or able to touch your most deep feelings (if you have them). :rolleyes:

"I don't know."

"'Cause I'm the most screwed up person in the world."

"I know. I love you."

I like quotes. Sometimes they arent always good advice or words to aspire to. They can simply be thought provoking or powerful. These are probably not words I would live by, but have stuck with me for a few years and I find them to be grim and beautiful. 

 

ā€œGod breaks the heart again and again and again until it stays open." -Hazrat Inayat Khan

 

"When the pain of remaining the same exceeds the pain of change, you will change." -Unknown

Yep. And sometimes they just hurt us. But that's ok, truth hurts.

 

Love them all!

you dont have to follow to lurk and read :p

 

here some that i feel describe me though

 

'     Donā€™t be scared to change. Be ready.'

 

'     You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.'

 

'     To hell with them. Nothing hurts if you donā€™t let it.'

 

'     We waste so many days waiting for the weekend. So many nights wanting morning. Our lust for future comfort is the biggest thief of life.'

 

'     Sometimes what youā€™re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.'

 

'     Make yourself a priority. At the end of the day, youā€™re your longest commitment.'

I know that, but If I started to visit that page frequently I'll start to have the need to look for other things in/on (?) Tumblr. And I don't have time for that. :(

Exactly. :)

 

 

Thanks for sharing. 

I'm always looking for inspiration. Sometimes reading a quote that means something to me, helps me organize my ideas and let them out.
