52 lists: List your favourite quotes.

When those pretty pictures with life affirming quotes appear on the news feeds, I am that girl that hits save. I am a full on quote hoarder (the contents of my pictures library stands as a testament to this!). I don't know what attracts me to them - maybe the fact that the perfect one is always on hand to commiserate, to enlighten, to encourage. There are several quotes that I'd like to think were true and others that I'd like to try and live by. Some of the most famous quotes were, at one stage, just one guys optimistic way of thinking. I guess the world needs a bit of optimism and that's why these things get passed around the way they do!

Here are some of the quotes that adorn my picture folder. One of these days I'll get round to making some quote wall art so I can see them every day (and hopefully be inspired to be as great as these guys were/are). For now I'll have to make do with sharing them on my little corner of the internet!

  • 'Dreams don't work unless you do'
  • 'There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind' C.S. Lewis
  • 'Don't confuse your path with your destination just because its stormy now doesn't mean you aren't headed for sunshine'
  • 'If everyone were cast in the same mould there would be no such thing as beauty' Charles Darwin
  • 'Wherever you go, go with all your heart' Confucius
  • 'It always seems impossible til its done' Nelson Mandela
  • 'Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain'
  • 'The greatest relationships are the ones you never expected to be in, the ones that swept you off your feet and challenged every view you've ever had'
  • 'Life is not about finding yourself, its about creating yourself'
  • 'Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.' Matsuo Basho
