A Little Pick Me Up

It's only Wednesday and it has already been an immensely long week. I know I shouldn't complain, I did get a week off and was able to be extra productive with my editing, but let me tell you, I'm making up for it now.

So I was up for some inspiration...a way to ease into the day. If you find yourself in need of a smile or a little lift read on. I know when I stumbled onto these amazing quotes they helped me.

"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

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
— Eleanor Roosevelt

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
— Oscar Wilde

"Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results."
— Albert Einstein

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
— C.S. Lewis

"It is our choices, Harry, that show us who we truly are, far more than our abilities."
— J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets)

"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

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."
— J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

Okay so that last one I just had to throw in...have a great day everyone.

That quote from C.S. Lewis is gold!

Tolkien FTW! I often think of the one line in that quote that I think means the most: not all who wander are lost.

Love it! Thanks Renae.

I love quotes. :) Thanks for sharing these--they brightened my day, too.
I just finished proof-reading my little sister's senior thesis on Oscar Wilde, so his seeing his quote really made me's so true, too. :)

Great quotes. Very inspiring. And remember it's the end of the month. For me at work, that's a good thing.
