Best Quotes

Recently I started to write down the quotes that stood out to me when reading a novel. Here are the top quotes that stood out to me since September. They’re funny, random, or just important to me. All of them are from books, so enjoy!

“me giving my mom romantic advice is kind of like a goldfish giving a snail advice on how to fly.”
                -Will Grayson (pg. 66) from Will Grayson, Will Grayson

“Just close your eyes and ask-What would Joe Jonas wear?'”
                -Riley (pg 60) from Radiance

“I’m just a teenager with hormones running wild. And may I say young fairy lady, they’re running wild in your direction.”
                -Orion (pg 137) from the Atlantis Complex

“So kiss it, fairy-tale endings. This story ended my way, and it is just the beginning.”
                -Chastity (pg 273) from Kiss It

“It was one thing to appreciate the past. It was something else to relive it.”
                -Lila (pg 90) from Ex-Mas

“Life, he realized, was much like a song.             
In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it’s in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile.”
                -Steve (pg 391) from the Last Song


A Quote

It’s Monday. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not too fond of Mondays.

In October, I went to NYC to meet with a few friends I met at the Penguin Insiders meeting and came across this sign in front of an apartment building. I stopped and took a picture with my father’s phone because I really liked the quote.

Make that random act of kindness. It brightens up someone else day and makes you feel good about yourself. The little things are bigger than you think.

Coffee Cup Change

Coffee Cup + Change = ?

I bet you’re all wondering what this is about. Does anyone want to take a guess?! I mean, the title pretty much speaks for itself.

My church has started to do this, but this has nothing to do with religion. This post is all about being a good person. In Coffeehouse Angel, Katrina is a good person because she gives a homeless man a warm drink and something to much on. Now tell me, if that happened to you would you do it? I would definitely help out! I’ve done tons of charity work and this is what has brought me to post this.

Every week, adults (and kids) spend about ten dollars (give or take) a week from buying coffee, tea, smoothies, etc. It’s that drink you grab before you start your day off. That’s a few dollars a day, not including the pastries you pick up. This is where I encourage you guys to do something.

Take a coffee cup. Doesn’t matter what kind, just make sure it’s some form of cup. During the week, try not to buy a drink at least once a day. Place the money you would spend for your coffee in that cup. Eventually, the money adds up. And if you keep yourself from buying each day, that just adds more to the pile. Once you’ve accumulated enough money, you can donate it to a charity, church or orginization that needs the money.

I bet you’re all saying “Why would I do that?” Well, I’m asking you “Why wouldn’t you do that?” Whatever you buy may have sugar in it. And woohoo! If you don’t buy it for a day, that just makes you even more healthy for not eating it! I don’t know about you, but helping others makes me feel good. I feel like I’ve helped a significant amount. Katrina feels good for helping out someone! Just think about how much you could help out. Someone, somewhere, is in need. The money you donate could end up being used to buy books for children…You never know.

I hope you all liked today’s post. It’s good to be a nice person 🙂
