Tupac again!

"For every dark night there is a brighter day." 
-Tupac Shakur
This is a good quote by Tupac because it keeps peoples hopes up. Even if there is a bad night or something went wrong one day, there's always tomorrow. There is a new day ahead and you shouldn't worry about what happened in the past, forget about the past and move forward. If you don't move forward and you keep yourself in the past than you won't live a good life, you won't be the happiest you can be and that's never good. Whenever you have a bad day or night always remember there's still tomorrow to succeed.

Tupac Shakur

"Sometimes I sit and look at life from a different angle." -Tupac Shakur 
Also a great quote by Mr. Shakur. It's a good thing to look at life from a different angle. If you look at life the same way all the time you will get bored easily and won't find interest in many things if you don't experience life a different way. Travel, learn a new language, make new friends, learn about another culture - these things will help you get a different view on life. If you just go about your day the same way every single day, you won't want to live for very long, especially if things are going the way you wanted. Life isn't perfect, it comes at you randomly and you can't pick what you go through...well you kind of can, but only to a certain extent. If you don't like the way things are going, change it! You can do many different things to change they way you see life. Try something new :]

Malcom X

"Stumbling is not falling." -Malcom X
Malcom X is one of the most inspirational people from history, I think. This is because he had many good points, and many notable quotes - like the one I have chosen. I like this quote because if you stumble and have to go through an obstacle in life it's not the end of the world. You will be able to over come it, but if you "fall" its like everything ends in a certain sense. Overcoming obstacles is part of life and not every one is going to be easy, so if you "stumble" or fail once, it's not the end of the world. Just get up and try it again, you're bound to get it sometime if you keep trying.


"You can't rely on other people to make you happy."
SO true, you can't leave it to other people to make you happy because at one point or at another that person will disappoint you and you will be so let down even though it might not be that serious. You have to make yourself happy at times and other times you can let other people make you happy, but for the most part you have to rely on yourself to make you happy. It's so much better not relying on others to make you happy because not everyone can make you happy ALL the time. Yes, you can be with someone who makes you happy a lot of the time, but everyone has their ups and downs.

Marilyn Monroe

"Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, I'm already better than them..." 
I love this quote by Marilyn Monroe because it puts all the right words together. Everyone's imperfections are what makes them unique and being unique is beautiful. Being ridiculous, may actually be ridiculous, but it's better than being boring. Sometimes being ridiculous is funny or breathtaking, and its certainly better than being a boring person. And it is better to let people think what they want about you, if they think bad things then they're not worth your time, you are better than them. This quote makes perfect sense.

"Spend your life with someone who makes you happy, not who you have to impress."
This is a great quote because if you spend your life with someone you have to impress constantly, you can't really be your complete self around them and I don't think that's love. If you spend your time with someone who constantly makes you happy, nothing else matters. As long as you're both happy with each other that's love. Trying to impress your partner isn't a bad thing, you just shouldn't base your relationship on that alone. It's good to try to impress your boyfriend/girlfriend every now and then, but if you are all the time you will get stressed out and be unhappy instead of happy.

Another Marley quote

"Who are you to judge the life I live, I know I'm not perfect and I don't live to be, but before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean." 
Perfect. People shouldn't judge other people by the way that person lives their life. Everyone has the right to live their OWN life without your permission. Don't point out someone and tell all of your friends their weird because they wear a certain something or have their hair a different way- they might think the same about you! 

"being happy..."

"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect, it means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."
I LOVE this quote simply because that is what being happy is all about. If you focus on all of the flaws in life and tell yourself you can't get through anything, you won't. If you pay more attention to the good things in life rather than picking out all of the things you don't like you'll be so much more satisfied with the life you live. Life isn't going to be perfect for anyone, but its the happiest people that decide to find other things in life that make them happy rather than dwell on past experiences or focus on things that bother them. If something bothers you don't try to spend all your time fixing it, move onto something else that's worth your time.

Lao Tzu

"Being loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." -Lao Tzu
This is a great quote because if someone really does love you it does give you the strength to carry on and over come all of your obstacles in life. It's amazing how it works. Also, if you love someone deeply it does give you courage because you know at any point in time your susceptible to getting your heart broken, but if you really love them it gives you the courage to not worry about it and just think about everything good that can happen. It also gives you courage because some people are afraid to fall in love, but once you do, it's the greatest feeling in the world. 

Unknown author, what a shame :/

"To dream of the person you wish to be is to waste the person you are."
Personally, I think this quote is amazing. If you dream and wish of changing yourself constantly you're not being original. You are thinking of the other person you wish to be. If everyone wished they were someone else, there would be a lot more twins in the world! Love who you are because there is no one that can be a better you, than you. Stand out and be original because that's all that matters. You're beautiful the way you are no matter what. 

Bob Marley

"Don't worry, be happy." -Bob Marley
If you read my other blog, you can tell I really like Bob Marley. Just like Jimi Hendrix he was a musician and had many great quotes, this one being my favorite. It's so simple, but it means so much. Don't worry about the small things in life because things will get better, and be happy! There's not enough time in life to be sad, so make the best of things and be as happiest as you can be! :)

James Dean

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today." -James Dean.
I like this quote because it is such a good quote to live by. You should always follow your dreams and hope for the best to happen. If you dream as if you'll live forever it's almost like nothing can go wrong and it will keep your hopes up that if something does go wrong, it will eventually get better. Live as f you'll die today is also very important because if you don't take advantage of life and live it to the fullest you don't know what youre missing out on. If you live as if you would die today, you would make sure you did as many things as you could! This quote just reminds me to not take life too seriously and enjoy it while I can.

Great quote, seriously...

"There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life  - happiness, freedom, and peace of mind - are always attained by giving them to someone else." -Peyton Conway March
This is a good quote because once again it's so true! If you give someone else happiness, freedom to go do their own thing once in awhile and peace of mind and being calm with them, you will get those things in return. You have to earn those things and you can earn them by spreading them around and giving those to people who need it most. You don't always have to come first in life, try putting someone else before you. You'll realize how much of a difference it makes. 

Robert Heinlein

"Love is a condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own." -Robert Heinlein.
I love my boyfriend, absolutely love him. When I first saw this quote my heart literally skipped a beat. It's exactly right, I care so much about him being happy and putting him first that it makes me happy when he's happy. I no longer put myself first, he just comes first automatically. I love it, I love having someone to care for and love especially when that person loves you back just as much. When he gets upset or sad, so do I. Not because of something that happened, just because when he's not happy it doesn't make me happy to see him like that. When he smiles and laughs my heart melts, its the best feeling in the world. :)

Jimi Hendrix

 "When the power of love over comes the love of power, the world will know peace." 
Not only is Jimi Hendrix one of my favorite musicians, he also spoke many words of wisdom. Such a strong quote, don't you think? If you don't get it at first, read it again - it's worth figuring it out. Most people in the world are hoping and praying for world peace at some point in time, this quote represents it perfect. Our country loves the fact that they have power, but they don't realize how much love is around and that some power is unnecessary. Once the world notices that love is much stronger than power, peace will finally come upon the world and it will be amazing!

"Throughout life..."

"Throughout life you will meet one person who is unlike any other. You could talk to this person for hours and never get bored, you could tell them things and they won't judge you. This person is your soulmate, your best friend. Don't ever let them go."
I really like this quote, too. Once again it explains my boyfriend and me perfectly. (Most of the love ones will have to do with my boyfriend and I :] ). I think this quote is so true because if you can be yourself around someone and never get bored with them, always are enjoying yourself with their company and tell them anything, they are special to you. You want to keep these people in your life as long as possible, possibly forever! They are the ones that are going to be there for you throughout every hardship or every accomplishment, they're here to support and protect you through everything.

My favorite

"If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever."
I absolutely love this quote. Me and my boyfriend say it to each other all the time. Even though the quote is based on Winnie the Pooh, it still means so much. It shows that even though you're apart from someone you love, you'll still always be with them in spirit and that's what matters most. It doesn't matter if you're right next to each other or a million miles away, two people should love each other and not worry about distance because if it's real, it's meant to be.


My new blog is going to be about quotes. Quotes about love, life, happiness, feelings, etc. etc. I love reading quotes especially ones that actually make sense and relate to my own life. I'm obsessed with love quotes, they put exactly the right words together you could never seem to do on your own. Also, quotes about happiness and life usually lift my mood when I'm upset about something. I'm going to write a quote for every blog post and hopefully you'll like the quote just as much as me! :)
