I love reading quotes! They inspire me so much! I have so many favorite poets there isn't enough room in this response box to list them all. These are a few of my favorite quotes:
-A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. ~Phyllis Diller

-When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile. –unknown

-When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us. - Alexander Graham Bell

-Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. -Albert Camus

"Life isn't about how popular you are... What girl or boy you are dating or who you know. Life is about always being true to who you are or what you believe in. Never let anyone convince you that their way is better than your way. In the end all we have is our hearts...and our minds. This is the reason why we sing... this is the reason why we cry... this is why we live." -Andrew Biersack (Spoken)


"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 (Spoken)


"Creating art or something beautiful makes you a more fulfilled person than they can ever be because they're caught up in what they hate rather than what they love." -Andrew Biersack (Spoken)

"You're not alone, we'll brave this storm" -Andrew Biersack (Song-Carolyn)

"Before you ask someone why they hate you, ask yourself why you even care"- Ashley Purdy (Spoken)

"There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't, what you've got to do is turn around and say "Watch me." - Ashley Purdy (Spoken)

"Dreams come to those who dare dream and wake up to make them a reality." - Jeremy Ferguson (Spoken)

"Being unique is what's cool. Normal? What's normal? Normal is a setting on a washing machine, and no one wants to be that."
-Ashley Purdy (Spoken)



I know its more than 5, but I am obsessed with the Black Veil Brides band, and I love their quotes!

Here are some of my favorite quotes.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. Washington Irving
This was spoken
The sorrow for the dead is the only sorrow from which we refuse to be divorced. Every other wound we seek to heal - every other affliction to forget: but this wound we consider it a duty to keep open - this affliction we cherish and brood over in solitude. Washington Irving(book). A people always ends by resembling its shadow
Rudyard Kipling(spoken to another author in 1930) Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
Edgar Allan Poe(written in a book called The Raven) A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.
Friedrich Schiller(written). A cool fact about Friedrich Schiller is that he my great-great-great uncle. I find all of Friedrich's quotes very deep.

These are some of my favorite quotes. I love looking for quotes when i'm going through hard times because they make me happier. I feel more motivated to cheer up:

"Just because you have the flaws, does not mean you aren't beautiful." - Zayn Malik. I love this quote because it's very true.

"Enjoy life, it has an expiration date" - Zayn Malik. I have always been told things like this but i just love the way he put it.

“Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain.” - Louis Tomlinson. This is my favorite quote by Louis.

"We have a choice..To Live or To Exist."- Harry Styles. I think this quote is motivational.


“It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.” -Andre Gide. This is a quote that i learned in life. My mom has actually told me this when i was going through issues in school.

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”-Dr. Seuss. I don't even know why I like this quote, but when i saw it i really liked it.

My favorite quote is one I created, it is what you learn from defeat that is truly important, not what you gain from success. I told this to a teacher once and they had me write it down for them, I felt special.

In my life I honestly dont know what I would do without quotes ! They explain me more than I can myself. And by far this is my favorite assignment along with the self presentation since the beginning of the year. There may be alot but these are some of my favorites.

" I belive that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right. you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one excpet yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
- Marilyn Monroe
" If there ever comea a day when we cant be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever."
- Winnie The Pooh
" I want to make you feel wanted."
- Hunter Hayes
" Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because dragons can be beaten."
- G.K Chesterton

I think it means you can never have enough friends. Its like jello because jello is not very filling so you can always can have more like friends you can always have more. Friends come and go so when one leaves you can have another one. Even if they leave you can have more.

Joey: "Friends are like Jello. There's always room for more!"
