Day 4: My Favorite Quotes

Oh man, it is too hard for me to just pick one quote! Oh whatever, I will share with you three of my favorite quotes.

1. "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
-Dr. Seuss
I like this quote because it's simple yet oh so true because sometimes in life, we feel the need to change ourselves in the hopes that others will like us better, but in reality, we should just be who we are. Those who like us for who we are are the ones that we should keep in our lives, and the rest...... well screw them.

2. "Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
-E.L. Doctorow
I feel like the second part of this quote describes not only the writing process, but life in general. Often we don't really know what we are doing and where our lives are going, we cannot foresee the future and things may seem really bleak, but interestingly, we don't really need to, things usually have a way of working themselves out nicely in the end.

3. "Everything will be alright in the end. So if it's not alright, then it's not the end."
-"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" 
There is just something so comforting about this quote, it's so optimistic and inspiring, I like to think about it whenever I face difficulties and just know that everything will be all right. :)
