Those of you who know me will know that I am a confessed quotes junkie. If you didn’t know that, now you know.

These are some of my favourite quotes:

No coward soul is mine,
No trembler in the world’s storm-troubled sphere…
I’ll walk where my own nature would be leading: It vexes me to choose another guide.” –Emily Bronte

Sometimes we love with nothing more than hope. Sometimes we cry with everything except tears. In the end that’s all there is: love and its duty, sorrow and its truth. In the end that’s all we have – to hold on tight until the dawn.”
– Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts

“Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway…If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.✓”
-Mary Kay Ash

I Dwell in Possibility
– Emily Dickinson

Live.Laugh.Love

Every experience God gives us
Every person he puts into my life
is the perfect preparation
for a Future only He can see.

The purpose of life is to live it,
to taste experience to the utmost,
to reach out eagerly and without fear
for newer and richer experience.
– Eleanor Rooseveldt


Write from your heart

Write from your soul

Make the best of your talent

And don’t Ever let it go

Not for anything…


The adventure of life is to learn

The goal of life is to grow

The nature of life is to change

The challenge of life is to overcome

The essence of life is to care

The secret of life is to dare

The beauty of life is to give

The joy of life is to love. – William Nathan Ward


today is your day

to dance lightly with life,

sing wild songs of adventure,

soar your spirit,

unfurl your joy. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. – Helen Keller


I took the road less travelled and that has made all the difference.          – Robert Frost

We will only understand the miracle of life when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day God gives us the sun and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. – Paulo Coehlo

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle. – Albert Einstein

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed. – Ernest Hemingway

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.   – Mark Twain

“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

For everything there is a season
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
– Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
– Soren Kierkegaard

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul.
– Emily Dickinson

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.
– Richard Bach

Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
William Shakespeare, Macbeth, 1606

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
– E. E. Cummings
