My Favorite Quotes

Did y’all see StyleistaEllie’s post about her favorite quotes? You didn’t? Well, here’s the link: StyleistaEllie’s Favorite Quotes

Can you guess what I’m blogging about today? Okay, I’ll cut the sarcasm. Ellie (AKA StyleistaEllie) did a post about her favorite quotes. That inspired me to do my own post about it, which seems to me like I’m cheating because she came up with the idea. Whatever. We share ideas anyway. So after gaining her consent, I wrote this.

Here’s some of my favorite quotes:

Bible Verses:

Proverbs 12:27- “He who diligently seeks good seeks favor, but he who seeks evil, evil will come to him.” (New American Standard Version)

Proverbs 12:22- “As a ring of gold in swine’s snout, so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion.” (New American Standard Version)

Psalms 32:39~40- “But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.”

I have so many more Bible verses that I love. It would be a REALLY long post if I put all of them. I’ll probably do a separate post for them.

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”- Unknown

“Fear doesn’t shut you down; It wakes you up.”- Veronica Roth, author, from her novel, Divergent

“Stand up for what you believe, even if that means standing alone.”- Andy Biersack, lead vocalist of Black Veiled Brides

“You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and you’ll eventually lose someone you love, so take many pictures, laugh too much and love like you’ve never been hurt because each sixty seconds you spend upset is one minute of happiness you’ll never get back.”- Andy Biersack, lead vocalist of Black Veiled Brides

“I think hope is not simply looking around and saying that everything’s great – that’s just ridiculous. For hope to have substance, it has to acknowledge the pain. But hope is saying that’s not the final story. It’s not saying pain doesn’t exist, but it’s saying there’s not a period at the end of that sentence. It’s still being written.”- Tim Foreman, bassist for Switchfoot
“Every day you’re alive, you can change the world. It could be for the better or for the worse. It can be big waves or small waves.

There’s a lot of weight to that.”- Tim Foreman, bassist for Switchfoot

“It gets better. Life will never put you through more than you can handle.”- Austin Carlile, lead vocalist of Of Mice & Men
“I’m an idiot, I’m slow,  I make mistakes. But I have a big heart and I put it to use. Sometimes I just need to think before I act or open my mouth. But hey, don’t we all?”- Austin Carlile, lead vocalist of Of Mice & Men
“There’s absolutely nothing worse than giving up on a life of endless potential, so don’t. Tear down what you hate and rebuild.”- Alex Gaskarth, lead vocalist of All Time Low
