Thorougly Quotable

Let's face it:  life isn't always a box of chocolates.
There are times when it seems like life is purposely trying to throw every single loop in the world at you simultaneously. Those times usually make for a pretty stressed out you, which then leads to a frantic you, and then it only goes downhill from there.
Sometimes you just need some positive reinforcement.
Reworded a little differently, sometimes you need someone who knows just the right thing to say at just the right time.
I don't know about you, but there are some cases where that person is a little hard to find.  So what do you do?  You go on Pinterest, of course!  It's a horde of quotes and lessons, so you're bound to find at least five sayings that will improve your mood in one sitting.
In a bad mood now?  Here are some of my favorite pins for when I'm in a less-than stellar mood:

1. "Be brave, my darling.  You have faced dark times before and you're still here now."-- C.T.L.

2.  "It all fades away in the end."

3.  "God has not called you to 'fit in.'"--1 Peter 2:9

4.  "Give the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate your presence."

Give the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate your presence.
5.  "The meaning of life is to give life a meaning."

6.  "Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny."--C.S. Lewis

7.  "She needed a hero, so that's what she became."

8.  "When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad.  For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps."--John Lennon

9.  "Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale..."

10.  "'What if I fall?'
'Oh, my darling, what if you fly?'"

Hmmmm, maybe I could be a professional quote-hoarder when I get older...



  1. Who is CTL and where can I find this quote in full?

    1. I believe that C.T.L. stands for a Tumblr username, although I could be wrong. As for finding the quote, try Pinterest and Tumblr; if those don't work, then I'd search the entire quote on Google or another search engine to see what pops up.
