22 january – that’s what he said. #bloganuary

January 22:

What is your favorite quote and why? 


I’m not sure I have one. I don’t have, like, words to live by or any other philosophical or inspirational quotes that I’d call favorites. And even if I did, those favorites would likely change based on my mood.

Honestly, though, most of my favorite “quotes” are song lyrics. But I don’t think that’s what I should use here.

Thinking of a quote that means something to me on demand is pretty much impossible. Maybe I should just let you know the next time I come across one?

No? I have to pick something? Okay.

*thinks for many hours before returning to this post*

I came up with a couple that I did actually save when I saw them. (I’m screenshot-happy.) Are they my most favorite quotes ever? I don’t know. Probably not. But I agree with them. And I had to give you something.

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special, too.
–Ernest Hemingway

and

I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up all alone.
It’s not.
The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.
–Robin Williams

I bet now you’re feeling as cheerful as I am. Which is not at all. Sorry.

   
I’m thinking anything that comes out of their mouths would become my favorite quote. 

p.s. — This one sucks. But tomorrow’s might be worse.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
