Words Worth Repeating

Quotes are a big part of our world. We often find it difficult to express our thoughts and feelings and must turn elsewhere for help in doing so. 

Songs are written with the intent of being repeated.  

Be true to yourself and everything will come right.
- Amy Duncan, Walk Away

All of us get lost in the darkness, dreamers learn to steer by the stars.
-Rush, The Pass

Every word in a movie or television show is chosen with care.

An inch... It is small, and fragile, and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us. -Valerie, V for Vendetta

Don’t be afraid to fall in love. It’s the only thing that matters in life. … You just fall in love with as many things as possible. -Kelly Canter, Country Strong

But sometimes people say things that with us even though that may not have been their express intention.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. -Maya Angelou 

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense. -Tom Clancy

I did not inhale. -Bill Clinton

And I have to wonder, did Abraham Lincoln know what an iconic speech he was about to give when he stepped up on the platform in Gettysburg? Did Martin Luther King, Jr. know that I Have A Dream would be required reading for speech classes all over America, and beyond?

So what are your favorite quotes? What has stuck with you since the moment you heard it?

  1. "To laugh is to risk appearing a fool.
    To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
    To reach out is to risk involvement.
    To expose feeling is to risk exposing your true self.
    To place your ideas and dreams before the crowd is to risk their love.
    To love is to risk not being loved in return.
    To live is to risk dying.
    To hope is to risk despair.
    To try is to risk failure.
    But the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
    The one who risks nothing does nothing and has nothing – and finally is nothing.
    He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
    But he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow or love.
    Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has fortified freedom.
    Only one who risks is free." -Unknown
