Words I Live By

The words of others that I wish I was wise enough to have said... 

"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea."

"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." - Dr. Seuss

"I’m a realist masquerading as a cynic who is secretly an optimist."

“You'll see one day when you move out it just sort of happens one day and it's gone. You feel like you can never get it back. It's like you feel homesick for a place that doesn't even exist. Maybe it's like this rite of passage, you know. You won't ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something. I don't know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place."
- Garden State

"Growing up Southern is a privilege. It’s more than where you’re born, it’s an idea and a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It’s more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, high school football, and acoustic guitars. It’s being hospitable, being devoted to summer nights, Ale 8 One, and each other. We don’t become Southern, we’re born that way."
"It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are, and what you want, and then you realize that people you've known forever don't see thing the way you do. So you keep
the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on." - Nicholas Sparks
"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us."

"You have to begin to lose your memory to realize that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all, just as intelligence without the possibility of expression is not really intelligence. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it, we are nothing."

“Fear is an emotion that people love to feel when they know they're safe.”
- Alfred Hitchcock

“People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn’t believe in that. Tomorrow wasn’t getting ready for them. It didn’t even know they were there.” - The Road
