My favourite one those days...

"cherish your solitude. take trains by yourself to places you have never been. sleep out alone under the stars. learn how to drive a stick shift. go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. say no when you don't want to do something. say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. decide whether you want to be liked or admired. decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you're doing here. believe in kissing." - Eve Ensler

Isn't it awesome? I was wondering, do you have a favourite quote that speaks to you? Do share, I would love to know:) xo

I love this! One that is not as deep but just so cute and i love it goes..

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

makes me smile every time i read it :)

That one just became my favorite. I love to eat alone in restaurants. And when I was 16 my Dad taught me to drive a stick shift and told me boys will think it is cool. He was right ;)

This one is definitely going under "favorites".

My all-time favorite:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-Mark Twain

Love Mark Twain!!

Isn't eating alone in restaurants so much fun, Nikki? Sometimes when Balazs is working late I go to our favourite Italian place for a seafood pasta and a glass of wine:)

It makes me teary. I love it.

Marjorie Rose said...

I love it, especially the part where she says "Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back." To me, it speaks of dreams and following your own path.

I really like Tennyson's "It's better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all." I interchange "love" with "live" sometimes. To me, it's about fearlessness and living your life to the fullest.

Diana Mieczan said...

That is beautiful, Marjorie and I love that part the most as well!

I love quotes: this one may be my favorite!

{whenpenmeetspaper} said...

It's a nice quote. Cherish your solitude (especially before one gets married)! Some people are afraid of being alone, hanging out on their own gives them jitters.
But being alone does not equate to lonely:)

P.S I don't have a favourite quote. I have a collection of favourite quotes ;)

Cheers!

Stephanie Sadler said...

What a great Eve quote. Is it just a general quote or from one of her plays?

Diana Mieczan said...

Stephanie, I'm not totally sure but I think, it's just a general quote.
