The 52 Lists Project // Week 08

This week has been both fun and stressful in equal measure. I'm getting to that point in the uni term where deadlines are looming and if I don't get a wiggle on I'll soon be overwhelmed with all the work I need to do - first world problems, ey? It just feels like there aren't enough hours in the day right now but I've been here many times before and I always manage to pull through so I just need to get on with it!

Because I've been feeling like this, these list posts are all I have time for right now which is a shame but it's better than not blogging at all and I am really enjoying writing them so it'll just have to do for the moment.

This week's prompt is: "List your favourite quotes." 

If you knew me when I was thirteen-fifteen you'll know that I was obsessed with quotes. In fact, the walls of my bedroom were covered in pretty print-outs of all the quotes I loved most. I was well and truly in that moody, misunderstood teenage phase and felt like the quotes I had up on my walls could summarise everything I was feeling far better than I ever could!

Ever since then, quotes have always had a special place in my life (I always have a list of my favourite ones on my phone which I add to whenever I find a new one that resonates with me!) which sounds like an odd thing to say but there's something so motivating and comforting in seeing other, often very respected, people say the things that you need to hear or that you relate to yourself. So here are my current favourite quotes:

  • "Comparison is the thief of joy." - Theodore Roosevelt
  • "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt 
  • "We read to know that we are not alone." - C.S. Lewis
  • "He who does not weep does not see." - Les Miserables
  • "But how could you live and have no story to tell?" - Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  • "Happiness doesn't reside in any other person, it's within you." - Unknown
  • "Sometimes you have to be uncomfortable to transform." - Beyonce
  • "Nothing has really happened until it is written down." - Virginia Woolf
  • "We accept the love we think we deserve." - Stephen Chbosky 

I hope you're all having a lovely and slow Sunday morning - unfortunately I'm off to the library to make a dent in my assignments but hopefully I'll have some time to relax properly this evening!
