Week 1 - Quotes.

Do read the "Read this" section up there.


So, the question is "What's your favourite quote and how does it relate to your life?"

Yes, Mozart is about to kill me if I don't write this post soon. Don't tell him I said that. I have a perfectly good reason for my ... delay. I had a difficult time choosing a single quote. But to no more delay, I present you my favourite quote. And another.

If you are going through hell, keep on going. - Winston Churchill

I found this in the depressive after being dumped months few months back and it got stuck to me. Its short and simple. Straightforward.

As a heartbroken girl, I felt like I was going through hell. Some kind of playground for emotional rollercoasters and crying myself to sleep nearly every night where the smallest and random things set me off. It was a wonder I didn't get panda eyes with all the crying.

And I was told that eventually it will pass and I'll be back to normal. I won't feel like crying or throwing something at the mention of his name. I remember rolling my eyes and crying even harder about how impossible that is. How painfully long it will be before my heart would even be strong enough to survive.

God, I was a basket case.

So as Mr Churchill put it, just keep on going. Eventually you'll get to the exit gate and leave hell. A bit scarred. But more wiser. Stronger. But you'll just wipe off the ashes stuck on you, wash your face and move on. Maybe you'll turn around and flip off hell with a wonderful Fuck You before strutting off.

That's what I did.

And yes, that other quote. This one made me tear up, honestly when I read it the first time.

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.- A. A. Milne

Let's hope that one day, I can relate this to my life.

And yes, if you want something more serious, read Mozart's version. He'll feel like a God if you comment.
Peace Out.

I don't know really what's my favorite quote.. but I just heard this.. from the movie Remember Me.. and they said it was from Gandhi (and i don't know how to spell his name)

whatever you do in life.. it will be insignificant.. but you still have to do it because no one will ever will..

and I guess.. that's me right there.. I just got to walk and enjoy life and do intended me to do.. or whatever

Good Winston quote. I like myself, from Real Genius, "Socrates last words were, 'I drank what?'"
