I thought I'd share some of my favourite quotes this week.
All of these have had some sort of influence on me in the past and/or present, and some will probably continue to do so in the future.
'All our words from loose using have lost their edge.' - Ernest Hemingway
'Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.' - George Orwell, 1984

'Grief is like the ocean: it's deep and dark and bigger than all of us. And pain is like a thief in the night. Quiet. Persistent. Unfair. Diminished by time and faith and love.' - Sam, One Tree Hill
'When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life.' - John Lennon
