Quality Quotes

Recommended Posts

  There are few better ways to inspire than a quotation. I always have one in my signature as a reminder of something important I should keep in mind (what do you mean right now it’s about unicorns? Are you telling me that’s not important to remember?).

 

 For this game, I want to collect a library of inspiring quotations to encourage us to do things anyway, even if they seem impossible or even if they go unnoticed. You’ll earn 2 beans per quote for your first 5 quotes posted by October 31st. They can be quotations from books, famous speakers or even song lyrics. Keep them HOL appropriate and credit the person who came up with them!

 

I’ll start:

‘In the slip of a bolt, there’s a tiny revolt. The seed of a war in the creak of a floorboard. The storm can begin with a flap of a wing, the tiniest might packs the mightiest sting.’ – Tim Minchin

First batch:

1.  "What are you thinking about?" I asked.
  "Just how wonderful the world is."
  "Of course."
  "No, really.  And you know what's the best thing about it?  That it
doesn't matter if we're here or not.  It just goes on being this
wonderful place.  That's what people forget.  It's not here for us.
It's just here, and the gift we were given is that we're allowed to
experience it."
~~"Forest of Stone"  in "Tapping the Dream Tree" by Charles de Lint


2 - " ... It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far
more than our abilities. ..."
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets  by J.K. Rowling


3 - "Living your life without remembering your choices of its
direction and purpose, without understanding and conscious use of the
gifts and challenges those choices provide, is very much like driving
a vehicle along an unfamiliar road, toward an unknown destination, in
the dark and with the brakes applied." ~  quote of Xaris


4 - "Till shade is gone, till water is gone, into the Shadow with
teeth bared, screaming defiance with the last breath,  to spit in
Sightblinder's eye on the Last Day."
Wheel of Time series - Robert Jordan


5 - "...Replenish the world with quiet wonder, not sorceries."
'Moonheart' by Charles de Lint

I always loved these...

 

"Living a lie... it festers inside you, like poison. You have to fight for what's in your heart."

-- Dorian Pavus, Dragon Age: Inquisition

 

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” 
-- August Wilson

 

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” 
-- Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

 

“You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.” 
-- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

 

“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” 
-- A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
