So, I’m a huge lover of quotes. When I can find one that is spot on with how I’m feeling it helps me a ton. I can sit for like an hour and just look up quotes on Pinterest. Just like anyone though, I have my favorites. I thought I’d share some!
No matter how cliché or over used this it WILL be said at some point in my wedding.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.*******
I am a HUGE lover of Marilyn Monroe. If there were anyone I could go back in time and have dinner with it’d be her. Yes she was provocative, but hey I like a strong-willed woman! Especially one who is comfortable in her own skin without being a twig. And although she says “Blondes have more fun” I’m pretty sure if she would’ve dyed her hair brunette she would have realized that in fact, brunettes do it better. I have about 5 different quotes hanging up in my room by her.
“I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” -Marilyn Monroe (to every single man out there)
“I believe 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 go right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart, so that better things can fall together.” -Marilyn Monroe (this seriously has helped me through SO MANY things. From my worst breakup, to everyday change that I may not understand)
“When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m already better than them anyways.” -Marilyn Monroe (I can’t stress this enough. This helped me all through high school and still does.)
“Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous then absolutely boring.” -Marilyn Monroe (One of my motto’s. I never have, nor will I ever be perfect. There is no such thing. Boring people, well, they bore me. Have fun with life, be silly, make mistakes, that’s living.)
This next man has written some of the most wonderful things. Not to mention my favorite book of all time The Great Gatsby.
“I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” -Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby (probably my all time favorite line from this book/movie. Besides of course the very last line.)
“There are all kinds of love in this world, but never the same love twice.”-F Scott Fitzgerald (Simply stated)
DR. FREAKING SEUSS. I don’t need to say more.
“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” -Dr. Seuss (Because I’m weird, and proud of it.)
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” -Dr. Seuss (Something I remind one of my greatest friends almost daily. So much so that I had it engraved into a bracelet as her Christmas present. PEOPLE NEED TO NOT CARE SO MUCH WHAT OTHERS THINK OF THEM. It can literally kill you.)
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” -Dr. Seuss (For me this is huge. I have never been a part of a group. I just go with the flow. I am who I am. I love being my own person.)
“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.” -The Perks of Being a Wallflower
“I would die for you. But I won’t live for you.” -The Perks of Being a Wallflower
“There’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.” -The Perks of Being a Wallflower (One of my favorite feelings ever)
“Love is fragile. And we’re not always its best caretakers. We just muddle through and do the best we can. And hope this fragile thing survives against all odds.” -Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.” -Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook (WHAT GIRL DOESN’T LOVE THIS QUOTE)
