Quotes (#157)


Morning Swooners!

It back to the grind and after a really crappy sleep schedule and a busy, errand-filed Saturday, I'm not prepared for a long work week. But it is good to be back on the blog and with our weekly quotes. So with that, let's get on with it.

“Close your eyes, real tight, and then count to three hundred. That’s all you have to do. You just count to three hundred, and when you open your eyes, five minutes will have passed. And even if it hurts or things are shitty or you don’t know what to do, you just made it through five whole minutes. And when it feels like you can’t go on, you just close your eyes and do it again. That’s all you need. Just five minutes at a time.”Emma Mills, First & Then

“Experience is like evidence. When you're young and don't have much experience yet, you don't have much basis for confidence. All you really have is hope, and that can get shaken pretty easily. But as years go by, you start to gather this evidence. You made it through this or that and you did okay, maybe not perfectly, but okay, so when you stumble, which you will, you can look back and say, 'Well, I survived that, so I can probably survive this.' Or there will be things you're really proud of, evidence of your abilities, and you can look back on those things and say, 'I did it then, I can do it again.' Right now, you're just building up those experiences.”Charity Shumway, Ten Girls to Watch

“Most good things come with the risk of something bad.”Richelle Mead, Succubus Blues

“Very often the things we most desire come only after much patience and struggle.”Richelle Mead, Succubus Blues

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.”Alice Walker

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“If there's a single lesson that life teaches us, it's that wishing doesn't make it so.”Lev Grossman, The Magicians

That's it for me today. I hope you all have a great week!
