Now that you have all chosen the quotes you would like to use, I want you to think very carefully about what your quote(s) actually mean. Pick one of your quotes to FULLY and COMPLETELY explain the meaning of in at least ten sentences. I have included an example below. Then, in at least five sentences tell me WHY you picked that quote and if you would post it to your personal social media site.

  • “Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.’” 
                                ― A.A. Milne. A.A. Milne is the author of Winnie the Pooh.


In this A.A. Milne quote from Winnie the Pooh, Pooh is referencing the idea that, it is really the little things in life that matter the most to people. The little things that you do for someone everyday or every so often like putting up their laundry, taking them lunch, or leaving them a sweet note for no reason. All of these little things compiled together will leave a much deeper impression on a person’s heart than the really huge grand gestures like vacations or gifts. Of course vacations and gifts are great to get but, those are things that someone could ultimately get or do for themselves. Where, the  little things that show that a person is cared for, have to be done by another individual for that person. For example, my Dad has always texted me every morning before school (when I was younger) and now before work to tell me good morning and that he loves me. Clearly this is a very small gesture that shows amazing dedication. Those small texts are a constant reminder of his love for me. Although it costs him nothing but a few seconds, they are not something I could do for myself and they mean so much to me. Therefore, I believe it is the little things that will usually mean more in a person's heart and stay with them forever. 


I love this quote because, I believe that it is 100% correct; I can identify with it. I, like Pooh, think that the little things count for a lot more than  the big things in life. Without hesitation I would post this on any/all of my social media sites. I think that a lot of the time people will take the little things in life for granted when they should really be treasured. Small gestures of kindness and love are typically the greatest ones because they can be done over and over but still, never seem repetitive. Also, little efforts are something that any of us can give, they don't require a lot of time, money, or even thought to make happen; but, when the effort is made, the impression can definitely be left in the most wonderful way.

My favorite quote-
"As we grow up we learn that even the person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it gets harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love, so take many pictures, laugh too much and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is one minute of happiness you'll never get back."
-Andrew Biersack

I think that Andy meant that we will trust many people in our lifetimes, but they will not always be trustworthy. Some people will hurt us, even though we never thought they would. We will be heartbroken, even in the end of the best relationships. We will place blame on people, even if they didn't do anything. We will also hurt other people. We will break their hearts, and won't think anything of it. That is, unless you remember how you felt when you were hurt. Even through all of the tragedies in our lives, we will have to bear through it. We will have to make it through the darkness, and make it to the light. If we don't, then we will spend all of our days in anger and misery, and we will never get a chance at happiness.

I picked this quote because it is so very true. It describes some of the many hardships in life, as well as telling you that it okay to get hurt, as long as you pull through in the end. So many people have been brokenhearted, or hurt by someone they trusted, so this quote is very relatable. I would definitely post this on a social media site, because it is one if my favorite quotes. As well as being inspirational, this quote is also from my idol, and lead singer of my favorite band, which is another reason why I would post it somewhere.

“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.” -Andre Gide. This quote means that you should be yourself in front of anybody even if they don’t like who you are. You shouldn’t change your personality just because nobody likes you for you. Be yourself and make your decisions in your personality. It is what makes you unique. Don’t let anybody make you into someone else. Your heart will tell you if it’s the person you are. You will know if you aren’t you. Wouldn’t it be better to be yourself and only have a few friends than to be someone opposite from yourself and have everyone love you? Maybe a few friends are all you need if that’s how people are going to be.

I picked to talk about this quote because I think that this is one of the most important things for people to know. It was also one thing that I could go on and on about without it sounding like jibber-jabber. I would post this on my social media site because I am not ashamed to feel this way or agree. People shouldn’t hate me for my opinion. Opinions are part of your personality

One common quote that i think is so true is "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." - Dale Carnegie

I believe that this quote is saying that no matter what, stay sweet and happy. When Life throws a sour mess at you, just be optomisistic and make the best out of it. Even though you may not always make the best of desicions, always be true to yourself. Whenever you mess up or fall, don't start over again or stay down, jump back up and be creative. Nobody is perfect, and no one's even close to your imaginatation. Just stay on your feet in those rough patches life throws at you, and when it's over start to walk again. Always let the optimism overcome you.

I chose this quote because i think it is so true. If I don't make the right decision, i shouldn't just sit there and sulk, i should learn from my mistakes. If i sacraificed my bestfriend for a family memeber, i shouldn't feel sorry for myself for the lost of my friend, i should be happy for that family memeber who had trusted me and now loves me more because he/she knows i will sacrifice the person i told everything to and cared about for them.

My Favorite Quote:
"You've got to dance like there's nobody watching, Love like you"ll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like its heaven on earth."
-William W. Purkey
This quote means to always be yourself and to never let anyone change you. Dont even let you change yourself just to be like those people you think are more "popular" than you. Be true to your mind and heart. God created you for you and you should never want to change that. You are beautiful inside and out and yeah it may take some time to realize that but you will see.You are you and if you are afraid that if someone doesnt like you then that doesnt mean you have to change for them. If they were your true friend then they would love you for who you are. To sum it up, I think this quote is saying dont get "embarrassed" for being you. I f someone doesnt like the real you then they will see what they are missing out on.

I love this quote because I believe so strongly in it. This is one of the rules or guide lines I put myself to. I love being me and I would never change who I am because God created me this way. Another reason I picked this qoute is it not only encouraged and goal in life for me but I think it should be for other people too. I would definitley, no doubt in my mind put this out on a socail media website becasue I love it this much !

Quote: "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible!'."
Author: Audrey Hepburn
Post: I think that the meaning of this quote is that anything is possible. If you try hard enough you will succeed. I think that this quote is cool because it says that impossible is saying that I'm possible. Which is the word itself. Sometimes it seems impossible but really isn't. Like if a preschooler can count to 100, or if a man can do a split. This isn't that hard if you practice. This quote is true. We can do anything we want (under some circumstances). We the people of the world don't need people telling us that the possible is impossible. We need them to tell us that the impossible is possible and that we can't say that we can't do that unless we try.

"Train hard, win easy."

-Toby Tanser
-Tanser is the author of "The Kenyan Way"

"Train hard, win easy," is material that you would use to motivate you in sports. This will motivate you to maybe start training or to start training harder. This quote is saying that if you want to win, then train. I believe that this quote could be used for many sports. Tanser was referring to Kenyan running when he said this. Kenyans are known for their fast times in running. Mainly running long distances. If you want to win you do not just train hard, you have to watch what you eat and what you drink. Part of your training is also praising God. This quote could get people far in life and/or sports.
I love this quote. I picked this quote because it motivates me to work harder and go for it all in the end. This quote helps me with training for Baseball, Football, and Cross Country. I would post this quote on my social media cite. If I post this quote on my social media cite, then someone could see my post and get motivated to start training.

In the Quote " Who Says Your Not Beautiful" By: Selena Gomez is trulu one of my favorites. Everyone sees beauty differently. It isn't about the looks, it's about what's deep down in your heart that counts. Everyone has a unique way of putting things, showing who they truly are. A person could be the most beautiful on the outside and mean on the inside. Sometimes the person is not the most attractive, but the most fun to be around. That's not always the case. People come in all different shapes and sizes.You just have to show people the real you. Don't hide it, embrace it. Like people for who they are and not for how they look.But, everyone is unique in there own ways, making them beautiful. In two words BE YOU!
The reason I picked this quote is because alot of people are attracted to the prettiest people but get treated like dirt. People are pretty in every way, not just on the outside. Everyone deserves to be seen as beautiful. Always be yourself because you're beautiful.I think this quote really shows this explanation in just five words.

My favorite quote:
"Everywhere you go you hear things that are untrue. You've just got to learn that if I don't say it, physically out of my mouth,on camera, it's not true." -Selena Gomez

I think what she was trying to say was that you hear rumors and gossip ALL of the time in magazines on the Internet and even in your daily environment. If you didn't hear it from the direct person it's about, and understood it completely and the way they want you to, then it's a lie. People get hurt everyday because of rumors that are being spread about them. They try to prove themselves right and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. We lose trust a lot because of lies and it hurts. Even though we eventually gain it back. Sometimes you just have to keep your mouth shut. Someone could take what you said and turn it something completely different. Every time I hear a rumor about someone I ask the person if it's true. Even if it is I wouldn't want to spread it because then I wouldn't be trusted by that person anymore. I've been told that trust is the number one thing in a friendship. If you lose it, you lose a lot of other things too.

The reason I picked this quote was because it means a lot to me. Selena worded the quote perfectly and I like how it basically explains itself.
A lot of girls have gone through gossip and I just love how I can relate to it so much. I would definitely post this quote on my social media site. It's a great way to express how I'm feeling that day and I wouldn't be afraid to post it.

Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.
- George Eliot
George Eliot is a pen name for Mary Anne, who was an English novelist, journalist and translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. What this probably means is that pets will never question you, and that's why they're some of the greatest friends you can have in this world. Pets never do any of the bad things humans do socially. If you train them right, pets will always be loyal to you. All you have to do is show your love to them. They will never question your mindset or actions. They'll never tell you if you're bad or good at something. Pets will just go with what you do. But of course, if you are a bad pet person (like me), then I don't suggest you get a pet. To get a pet's trust, you first have to give yours.

I have chosen this quotation because i can agree with it. when I used to have any of my pet dogs (3 total), they trusted me (up until they got to the point of running away). If i watch a TV show, they didn't criticize about what I watch. If I do something wrong, they didn't question my actions.I would post this on my Facebook to tell all pet owners that they have the greatest friends they could ever get.

Sponge bob: “what do you usually do when i’m gone? Patrick: waiting for you to come back.”

BY, Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke the voices of Sponge bob and Patrick



This quote Means that if you’re friend is a true friend they will stick by your side forever and when your gone they will be eager for you to come back. I think this quote is trying to emphasizing that to friends can be so close that they will be a team and stick together for a long time. If you have a good friend they will never betray you on purpose. If your friend is a really good friend they will always be by your side mentally our physically. If your friend is not a good friend he will not stick by your side. They will also betray you on purpose and you will not always be with them. The way you tell is that a good friend will be true to you and there selves. A bad friend covers themselves with lies and is not true to you. If you are gone a good friend will always remember you even if you won’t be back for a long time. A bad friend will not wait for you to come back.




This quote means to me because I to have a best friend and if they were gone I would wait a very long time until he came back. I picked this quote because it is inspiring to me in every way. I also picked this quote because I had a long distance relationship with one of my best friends and a always waited for him to come back and he did. I would put this on a social media site because this quote is nice and has a powerful meaning. I would also post this on a social media site because I hope people will learn something and progress because of this quote.

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of god, which is why we call it present."
- Bil Keane

Tomorrow is a mystery means that you dont know what is going to happen tomorrow. And today is a gift of god meaning that god gave you today so make it count. Yesterday is history means that you already lived through yeterday. So dont worry about it because it is history. I like this quote because it tells you to only worry about today. I also like this quote because it tells you not to worry about yesterday or tomorrow.

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant."
-Robert Louis Stevenson
I think this quote means that not everything turns out the way you want it to. Somethings start as one thing and ends another way. Just like when you plant things they may start of good but end badly. If you judge the situation by how it ends you may forget how it started. For an example, if you start a class that tutors kids and a lot of people show up the first time and not as many show up the second. You shouldn't focus on how it didn't stay popular but that the original idea was to help others. I think that it's okay if you're plan doesn't turn out how you want to. At least you know how you wanted it to go.

I picked this quote because I like the message that it brings across. It lets people know that it's okay if they're plans don't turn out the way they want them to. I would post this on a social media website.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"
-Lao Tzu
This quote means that you have to be the person! The person that is big enough to make a difference or reach a high set goal. Say I set a goal to stop chips hunger, I would have to go after that goal and do something big to make a difference. I have to start something to be committed to finishing or accomplishing it. Or maybe even a goal to be a better person , well that wouldn't happen if I just say there and did nothing. I would have to do something about it an I might fail or get brought down at tikes but that will just make me stronger and help me learn and move on. It's amazing what people can do if they would just try! I have set many goals for myself and I just need to find a way to put them In action and actually live up to them! My accomplishments may be able to help other people too I can be the difference everyone wants to see. I want to leave a mark. I want to leave the people that watch me go after a goal thinking I'm amazing. It would be fun, exciting, challenging, and amazing to reach a goal if you just try!
I chose this quote because it motivated me. It got me to think deeper and consider to take action in some personal goals. It makes me want to go further than I or anyone else ever tjought I could! To leave an important message not to just have lifeless goals that you think aren't possible, because they are if it's YOU who gets up and makes a difference.

Quote:“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.”
-Helen Keller
Helen Keller was a educator, activist, and journalist born in the late 1800's.
What this quote means is that the the things in our lives that matter most to us can not be seen or touched such as love. Love can not be seen or touched. For example when I felt all alone my mom gave me abundant amounts of love. I could only feel her love in my heart. Another example is that things such as jewels or other beautiful objects that can be seen or touched are the things in life that do not matter. When I felt alone I could feel the warmth and love that my mother was giving me. That warmth and love made me feel as if I was not alone that I could go on living. What Helen Keller meant in her quote was that the things in life that are absolutely and truly amazing can only be felt within. Love,happiness, acts of kindness, etc are things we can feel only in the heart. I believe that the things that make a person truly happy can only be felt within. I picked the quote because this quote reminds me of my true feelings. I picked her quote because it best describes who I am as a person. Also I would post this on a social media site. I would because I am not embarrassed by this quote. Also because the quote reflects the thoughts I have every day.
