Quotable Friday: Dr. Seuss

dont-cry-because-its-over-smile-because-it-happened-2

This quote is currently relevant to my life, but I’m not sure how I feel about it. I feel like it is definitely good advice. It’s better to dwell on the positive things in life. You’ll have a much better everyday attitude in that case, but at the same time, pain is a part of life, and it’s important to let yourself cry every now and then. Sometimes a good cry is what you need. It’s like a physical representation that everything is not okay at the moment and the fact that that there’s water sliding down your face shows your human side. It shows you letting out your emotions which is much better than holding them in all the time. I’m not saying we should go around crying about everything all the time though. Allow yourself to feel the pain and hurt life might throw at you, but after letting out what may feel like negative emotions (they’re really not. Sadness is important), focus on the positive things in your life, or even the positive aspects of the situation that made you cry. Trust me, it leaves you so much happier in the long run. Dr. Seuss was on the right track with this quote, I do promote it, but it’s also important to cry every so often. We’re only human after all.

Quotable Friday: An Anonymous Truth

Hellllooo all you lovely people! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, and if you’re into the Black Friday thing (as I am), I wish you much happiness and thrill in finding fabulous deals!

I apologize for not posting as much of late, but this semester at college has literally been crazy. Crazy academically and with people. There is just so much going on!

One of the other things I find myself lacking time for is reading, and I ran across this fantastic little quote that made me miss it even more. I have no idea who said it, but whoever she may be; she is quite clever.

So without further ado, I provide you with a Quotable Friday Quote by Clever Anonymous!

It’s so fab, so perf, and so TRUE!

Quotable Friday: Tea with A.A. Milne

I would love that. Growing up, I was always a fan of Winnie the Pooh. Of course, I didn’t realize they were actual books until a few years after I began watching the TV show/movies. Do you remember those VHS tapes, the ones that had old-fashioned Pooh who would talk to the narrator? The ones where Tigger would bounce down the paragraphs and the letters would fall down on the characters due to the rain? Those were the ones completely based off of Milne’s books. His whimsical characters were so lovable—in fact they’re still lovable, and they had a wisdom about them. They would pop out something completely relatable, something incredibly adorable, or even something quite profound.

So, I’d like to share a cup of tea with the man and thank him for the fun childhood characters he gave me from Deep in the Hundred Acre Woods… and also the great quotes he’s left us with.

This is such a good metaphor...

Quotable Friday: Reading with C.S. Lewis

Wouldn’t that be awesome? I can imagine it now, sitting beside him, the great C.S. Lewis, both of us engrossed in books we love. Maybe I’m even reading one of his works. I’ve always had a place in my heart for The Chronicles of Narnia. Or maybe I finally got around to reading some of his other writings. Perhaps some tea and cookies sit on a table in front of us. It would take a lot to pull us from our reading, but we might stop to share some happy thoughts or our excitement for our books…It would simply be wonderful.

For now though, it’s but a dream, and I’ll have to be content with reading the amazing man’s wise words. Here are a few of his quotes that prove his bibliophile status. You might recognize them…

Tea can be quite delectable, and when you're reading a good book...you don't want it to ever end.
