I Couldn’t Say It Better Myself – A Few Good Quotes

In Opinion/Personal, Personal, Random on December 30, 2012 at 8:22 pm

I’m about to tap into my 14 year old self.  My bedroom at my mother’s house used to be plastered wall to wall with posters of boy bands, but the relevent piece here was the one section of wall right above my bed between the window overlooking the driveway and the other wall that I had spent much timme decorating with words.  Cutesy stationary with quotes and hand drawn pictures, typed little love poems with lots of “~*~” decorations and cut with patterened edges.

I may have stated this in a previous post, but I’ve always had this fascination with words.  Lyrics, poems, random sentences that stand out to me.  So I thought I’d take a second to share with the blog world some of these that have stuck with me or that I’ve hung on to.  Some have meaning to me, some just feel or sound pretty when spoken or read.  I can’t put my finger on why some of them grab me the way they do, but I think that’s part of the beauty of it…
