I got myself thinking about what some of my favourite quotes are. Like if I had motivational posters what would they say. Would I line my walls with the typical “Hang in there” cat poster? No, not so much, it’s just not my style. So I’ve composed a short list of quotes, that I enjoy.
“Life imitates art” from Gods and Monsters by LDR – This song gets stuck in my head all the time. And this line reminds me that no matter how hard we try no one is perfect. And who really wants to be anyway?
“But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep” from Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost – English has always been a big part of my life. It was always my favourite subject in school. I vividly remember the lesson in eleventh grade English class about this poem. It’s structure, and subject matter. There was just something so simple, but significant about it. When ever I read this poem I get chills. And Frost is definitely one of my favourites.
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return” from the movie Moulin Rouge – This has to be one of my favourite quotes from a film, as well as one of my favourite films of all time. So beautiful, so eloquent, so much, and heavy all at the same time.
“Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs” from the movie Heathers – Yeah, it’s a little cynical, but so am I.
“They say there’s a passage where all stand to judge, but the Devil’s a waitin’ with Christ like a son” from Devil’s Waitin by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – The first time I heard this song I got chills. The music is haunting, the lyrics masterful. All in all a beautiful song.
I kept the list brief, I could bore you all with Coco Chanel and Lee McQueen quotes, even miss credited Marilyn Monroe quotes, but this list is the core, the things I tell myself when I am having a terrible day and all I want it a glass of wine and a nap. And on that note, it’s time to end!
All for now,
Title from: Devil’s Waitin’ by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
