Day 05 – Quotable Quotes

I’m doing the Fifteen Day Challenge – click here to read original post and view the list of fifteen challenges.

I typically write down quotes I like. If you look at my daily planners, you’d find lines from songs, movies and tv shows.

I still have my 2001 planner and took a peek inside and found the quotes below:

If you think back, and replay your year – if it doesn’t bring you tears of joy or sadness, consider the year wasted. – John “The Biscuit” Cage

Anybody else watched Ally McBeal? I used to be crazy for that show. I think I had my life lessons through this show instead of actually experiencing life during my formative years.

The darkness that engulfs you now is as intense as the light that awaits you.

It’s a shame I didn’t write down who said that. But I did doodle a candle next to the quote. I can’t believe I was so optimistic when I was younger, ha ha! I think growing up has made me look at the glass half empty.

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope. – Helen Keller

Now THAT is optimism. Keller had everything taken away from her by fate, but she soldiered on. I think I need to rethink my half empty glass disposition!

This hell from which you have come out is the first step towards heaven. – Victor Hugo

There is always more misery among the lower classes than there is humanity in the higher. – Victor Hugo

From Les Miserarbles. Read the book, saw the musical more than once, saw the movie. And Hugo’s work was dumbed down from one medium to the next. If you have the time and the patience, read the novel. It’s one of the best reads I’ve ever done.
