On My Favourite Quotes

Now anyone who knows me well know how much I adore quotes. So much so that my wall used to be completely covered in my favourite ones, to always remind me of what is important. I always have a list on my phone of quotes that I love which I often add to. A lot of the time I find them in books and write them down too. So I guess you can imagine how difficult I found it to narrow these down to just a few, but here's my best shot. 

1. "No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for any one else." - Charles Dickens

2. "And love is always complicated. But still humans must try to love each other. We must get our hearts broken sometimes. This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something." - Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love

3. "There's nothing like the deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons." - Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower 

4. "The people you love can surprise you every day. Maybe who we are isn't so much about what we do, but rather what we're capable of when we least expect it." - Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

5. "Everything that's worth having comes with trials worth withstanding." - Kate Voegele

6. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt 

7. "At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes, all you need is one."
