I know this is random but if you are like me you have favorite quotes that you'd love to share....just me? Ok...here's one

"Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as being stuck somewhere you don't belong"

I have no idea who wrote it though XD

message 3: by Madeline (new)

Madeline  (theorganizedscatterbrain) When I was younger I used to imagine myself as a book character and wish that I would actually be like one and basically I came up with this quote to encourage myself that I still remember to this day:

"Your life may very well be like a fairytale-- maybe you're just still living through the backstory so you can summarize it in the beginning" --Me

YES Vivien I love this!!

Here is a beautiful quote from a childhood favorite of mine, Leepike Ridge by N.D. Wilson. It isn't deep or motivational, but I just find it so beautifully written:
“After a few mouthfuls of moon-flavored air, even the stubbornly drowsy can find themselves wide-eyed.. All the normal noises of life were gone, leaving behind the secretive sounds, the shy sounds, the whispers and conversations of moss disputing with grass over some soft piece of earth, or the hummingbird snoring.”

Something I made up out of NOWHERE. Literally ;]

"We can't expect life to stop for us, even though we all wish it could. We can't expect people to wait for us when we hide behind a sheet of glass, where they can see you, but not reach you. Once in a great while, you might have to take a chance and hop on board. Even that may be hard. But life is hard anyway, so we need each other."

Faith (victorianprincess) | 33 comments I didn't read the first part, buy read the quote, and thought for sure it was from a bestselling book. I really did!
Then I saw that you made it up, Shayna, and I was soooo PROUD of you!!!
I am blessed to call you "little sister" you are so wise!

✨ f i o n a ✨ | 10 comments Here is a quote it is from a book called Empire of Bones by N.D. Wilson. I always freak out at this quote bc it is just sooo awesome. Without any further ado, "' What can you do, dragon, to erase the life and laughter I've already lived and already laughed?' Cyrus asked. 'What can you do to frighten one as foolish as me?'....'Slowly, Rupert Greeves raised his head. His eyelids fluttered and the corner of his mouth twitched up. 'What,' He asked the world, 'can you do to erase my laughter?'" I hope y'all like it! And I love everyone's quotes!*gives everyone a high-five and a thumbs up*

((Just so you know, Dragon's Eye is a book that I am currently writing. I just kinda took this quote from the rough draft. ✌))

Michaela "We must be the change we wish to see in the world."

I'm not sure who said that, but I think it was Ghandi.
