Quotes help us with our everyday lives. Those who have meanings to it, help people deal with a lot of life issues. They also explain a lot of things. I got the idea of writing a times article, about quotes, after reading some city records where people have included beautiful quotes. It also showed me how quotes mean a lot to people.
My favorite quote is: "I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry." - Author unknown.
The reason why I love this quote is because it shows how people will always remember the good memories. Sometimes it makes them feel emotional, but regardless of whatever happens they'll never forget the good times they've had.
I have asked four Whyvillians, to share their favorite quotes and also why it means so much to them.
nicenfun - "When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." - Helen Keller
This is my favorite quote because I can easily relate to it. A number of years ago, I lost someone dear to me. I spent a long time replaying it in my head and couldn't move past it. One day, I read this quote and I finally realized that specific chapter in my life was over, and I needed to start a new one. In a sense, it saved me from myself.
Leprosy - "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." -Mahatma Gandhi
jts2000 - "Look at life through the windshield, not the rear-view mirror." - Unknown
This quote is very important to me because it shows that you should always look forward and to never look back at your regrets, lies, misfortune, and sadness. If you look forward to what's ahead and what lies in your future, you will be excited to see what happens next, and you will be successful. However, if you look out the rearview mirror and start regretting your life and thinking of the worst moments of your life, you won't be successful. Instead, you'll be depressed. You will remember that day when your Mom died in a car accident, or the day when you lost that huge fight at school. You will be too busy thinking about those bad moments when you could be thinking about what lies ahead in your future. Instead of thinking of your failiures, think of your success and how your success will help you out. As you can see, this is a quote you should live by, especially in times of trouble.
Maniacmel - "No matter where you go, someone will always miss you."
This quote means so much to me because it's something I was told when i had openly discussed my wants of running away/to die. This has kept me from giving up on life so often because it's always there in the back of my head to remind me, my life is not only me but others as well.
I thank all four Whyvillians, for taking part in this. I'm really gratefull, I also had a lovely time reading through all your favorite quotes and how they mean so much to you.
