"If someone tells you to change, tell them to go fuck themselves" - Ed Sheeran
See, I think this is great. In your life, you're going to be told that you're not pretty enough, or you're weird for liking certain things and people are going to disapprove. You might not realise it at first because you'll concentrate so much on pleasing other people, but it's important to stay yourself because you weren't made to follow the trends, you should be yourself because then you're going to be happy and do what you want to do.
"We must all face the choice between what is easy and what is right." -Albus Dumbledore.
I don't care that he's a fictional character, it's still true. Just because something seems difficult, it doesn't mean you shouldn't do it, if it's really what should happen. For example, in my case, it's not going to be easy for me to become an actress, but there's nothing else (apart from maybe a writer) that I'd want to be, so I'm just gonna have to suck it up and try my hardest.
"Nothing worthwhile comes easy." -Myself xD.
I don't even know where I came up with that, but I probably just randomly thought of it. It's true though. If something is worthwhile, you're going to have to work for it. Life doesn't just get handed to you. I'm not just going to be able to walk into an audition and get the part in a major film, I'm going to have to work hard, but it will be worth it to do what I love.
"Success is the best revenge for anything." -Ed Sheeran.
I just think this motivates me a bit through out the day. Like if some of the popular people are making me feel small and when they think they're so much better than me. I mean, just imagine, one day far in the future, doing what you love and being successful, while they're just at home with a boring job. It will be because you worked hard and you were nice to people. You'll get to show them just how awesome you are and prove them wrong.
"Normal is something that millions of people do every single day.To be abnormal to me, is what's a lot more fun." -Josh Hutcherson.
It's not fun to be like everyone else, really is it? You, yourself are much more interesting than you being like that popular girl in your class. Do your wallflower friends really want to be friends with that popular girl? No. They want to be friends with you, so stay you.
"I can't tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone" -Ed Sheeran.
It just shows that you should stay yourself and not worry about fitting in with the trends, because it will just end badly.
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost, that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. -Henry David Thoreau.
Basically, this just means that you have your dreams and know what you have to do, so all you need to do now is work towards it. I love it so much. Check out Henry David Thoreau's quotes, they're amazing.
"Negativity isn't the way to go. Smile more. Eat some chocolate." -Ed Sheeran.
Come on, how could that not be classed as a good quote?
"If you're luck enough to be different, don't ever change." -Taylor Swift.
You're lucky to be different and you're luck to be able to not follow the trends and stay true to yourself. Lots of people aren't lucky enough to be qwerky and they're not strong enough to stay themselves and not follow everyone else. You are, so why would you throw all of that away, just to be someone you're not and not be happy?
"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end." -Ed Sheeran.
If you're going through a hard time, don't think it's too hard to face. It will turn out okay, you just need to give it time.
"What does it matter if your guy friends like guys? Just means more girls for you." -Josh Hutcherson
It's so true. I don't understand being homophobic. What does it matter if they're the same gender? They're in love, why does it matter what sex they are? They're still humans and honestly, my 'friend' told me once that she hated gays because it's unnatural and they're horrible. I actually just went home, I was so ashamed and couldn't bear to be with her. I was so mad, because I don't understand discrimination at all. I just don't get it, so if anyone does, please explain.
"Time turns flames to embers, you'll have new septembers." -Taylor Swift.
Whatever is seeming like a big deal to you right now- whether it's your boyfriend breaking up with you, your pet dying, parents divorcing, bullying, whatever it is- won't seem like a big deal in a month, a few weeks, hell, maybe even a couple of days. If you think like that, if you think of the future and think of it not bothering you sometime soon, it won't seem that big a deal right now. I promise.
“The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing." -Eric Berne
I'll just explain this. I'll put it into human context. So, basically when you're young, you don't care who's black, white, gay, straight; they're just people and you'll treat them like anyone else, you'll see them as just normal people, which they are of course. However, some people grow up and begin discriminating. This is saying that once people begin to care what colour people are or whether they're gay or straight, some people look past everything and just care about that. They don't care about whether they're nice. They might not even care that someone has done a good thing to them or if they're the nicest guy on the world; if someone is gay, some people see that as a bad thing. Which is sick. Humans are humans.
"I accept all people, even the people I find unacceptable." -Jarod Kintz.
I think if you think like this guy, you'll win at life. Even though you hate someone, it's good to still have a little respect. It doesn't mean you have to like them by any means. But say you got into an argument with them, it means that instead of fighting back, you agree to disagree. I'm not saying I'm perfect, I hate people, everyone does. But I'm never so mean that I'll say something that will hurt them. I have respect, even for the people I truly despise.
"I kicked myself in the face." -Jennifer Lawrence.
No, there's nothing exactly inspirational or inspiring about this quote. I just like it because it shows that although she's a big movie star, she's still down to earth and has faults like any other person. It reassures me that everybody has faults and I'm not the only one.
"It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default." -JK Rowling.
Just live life a little, don't be cautious incase something goes wrong, because it could be your only chance. You'll regret not taking that oppurtunity later in life.
"Homosexuality isn't a disease. Homophobia is." - can't remember.
Just enough said, really.
"Even in the rain, there is still sunshine." -Ebony Watkinson.
Okay, that was something that my best friend said when I was walking her home and she didn't mean for it to be deep, she was just generally speaking about the weather and we both found it hilarious that she accidently sounded like a wise guru. But it's true:3
I hope you enjoyed all of the quotes and I hope some of them stick in your mind and make you think:)
