I'm a sucker for a good quote. Seriously I'll find a fitting one for anything. Fell out with your friends? Here, have a quote. Boyfriend troubles? No problem, this quote will describe it. Your arms falling off? It'll be ok, this quote will make it better.

Remember back in the days of Bebo when you used to trail the internet for hours trying to find the perfect 'skin' (header) for your page to encapsulate how you were really feeling? And then when you found it, you were like wow I'm so deep I should make a Tumblr. Nope? Just me? Kl.

I was so cool back in the day.

No joke, I'm kinda wishing that Facebook had this on their site- I'd 100% be looking for all the NYC themed 'skins' if it did.

In all seriousness though, sometimes a quote does make you feel a 'lil bit better. There's just something about coming across one that's so fitting to that particular point in your life; helps you feel less alone, like 'hey, someone else must be feeling this way too' - so get yourself a good cuppa and have a read at some of my faves when I'm having a not-so-glittering day:

1.  Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't. - Harvey MacKay

2. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. - Maya Angelou

3. Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. - Dumbledore

4. Make a list of things that make you happy. Make a list of things you do every day. Compare the lists. Adjust accordingly.

5. What a wonderful life I’ve had! I only wish I’d realised it sooner.

6. The struggle is part of the story.

7. Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering. -Winnie the Pooh

8. 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 

9. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

10. If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse.

11. Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh. -WH Auden

12. Anything is good if it's made of chocolate. -Joe Brand

13. You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. -CS Lewis

14. Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. -Oscar Wilde

15. We loved with a love that was more than love. -Edgar Allan Poe

16. Think of the most attractive person you know. Even that person, at some point, has had raging diarrhoea. -Jennifer Lawrence

17. Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to used during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank, its name is time. Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against 'tomorrow.' You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and health. The clock is running. Make the most of today.

18. You never know the truth. You know 'a' truth.

19. The truth is that airports have seen more sincere kisses than the wedding halls, and the walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of a church.

20. For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.

21. Be the person your dog thinks you are.
