Quote Me Wednesday

Let’s break up the work week.

Lay one of your favorite quotes on me. It could be from a movie, poem, song or even something you wrote.

I’ll start with one I wrote earlier on my Twitter page:

“Human beings have an inalienable right to invent themselves” – Germaine Greer
Your turn

  1. "I don't even know how long she's been gone. It's like I've woken up in bed and she's not here… because she's gone to the bathroom or something. But somehow, I know she's never gonna come back to bed. If I could just… reach over and touch… her side of the bed, I would know that it was cold, but I can't. I know I can't have her back… but I don't want to wake up in the morning, thinking she's still here. I lie here not knowing… how long I've been alone. So how… how can I heal? How am I supposed to heal if I can't… feel time?"Bit of a long one, but its from the film Memento. This passage always breaks my heart.


  2. Wow. That is beautiful. Thank you.How about this: "When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want it to start as soon as possible" When Harry Met Sally. It's romantic, which I adore.


  3. Not a quote per se, but powerful nonetheless…..Two friends were walking along a beach when they came upon hundreds of starfish stranded in the sand. One of them began picking them up and throwing them back into the ocean. The other friend asked why he was doing this. The first one said that he was trying to save them. His friend asked why is mattered because he couldn't possibly save them all. The first one picked up a starfish and said, "I might not be able to save them all, but it matters to this one".


  4. I heard the quote that Matty left earlier today somewhere…My favorite quote has been with me for quite a while… I found it while working on a high school senior English paper…"Respect the silent for still waters run deep…" ~unknown~~shoes~


  5. "Captain, I just threw your damn palm tree overboard. Now what's all this crap about no movies tonight?"-Ensign Pulver (in Mr. Roberts)
