I love quotes. To anyone who isn’t me it could seem borderline annoying but I can’t help myself. It’s much like Sarah Jessica Parker in Footloose in that bar scene. Sort of. I love words, I love how certain words put together can make me feel understood. Or better, help me to understand. I feel things deeply & sometimes it over powers me in such a way I cannot describe it. Quotes help that. Just like music & books. Often times I save them under my notes on my iPhone but I forget about them. I found them today.
It’s so much easier to be happy, my love. It’s so much easier to choose to love the things that you have, and you have so much, instead of always yearning for what you’re missing, or what it is you’re imagining you’re missing. It’s so much more peaceful.

Rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength.
Willie: Yeah, my mother’s dead.
Marty: I knew it. Your dad’s kind of a sad guy. Your brother’s kind of missing that thing, that thing that having a mom gives you. It’s a lonely house you got, if you don’t mind me sayin’.
