quote me.

While I was writing my little grad thing for the yearbook, I found some really stellar quotes. Here are a few of my favourites...

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life from what we give. {Winston Churchill}

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live. {Anonymous}

easy to make a buck, but it’s a lot tougher to make a difference. {Tom Brokaw}

Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. {Anonymous}

There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right... {Martin Luther}

bee yourself.

Halloween is the one day of the year that you are allowed to be someone that you're not. Or maybe it's the one day of the year when you are allowed to be yourself without others judging you. Either way, it's a great excuse for a party.

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation." _Oscar Wilde, De Profundis, 1905

True true.

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." _Oscar Wilde

But my favourite of all.

"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
