Quotations for you and me

Words can be powerful tools to spread joy, powerful weapons to destroy and they are free to us all. I thought I’d share with you a selection of my favourite quotations (there are way too many to list in just one post!).They’re here because some of them make me think, others make me reflect and all of them make me smile – I hope they can do the same for you.

“Life isn’t fair, it’s just fairer than death, that’s all.”
― William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.”
