Quote Me

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

There aren’t many quotes I turn to again and again, but there are three that I really like. (Four if you count the one from Gladiator. I shouldn’t need to explain which one, it’s just the one!)

Don’t put your tongue where you wouldn’t put your toothbrush.

Takes “Don’t do anything I wouldn’t” to a different level for the less risk averse.  Unfortunately toothbrushes and, maybe less so, tongues, seem to go to a few less than mutually exclusive places at the moment…  In fact, they probably don’t go to the same places they should either.  (I’m talking metaphorically, of course.  My dental hygiene is OK, thanks.)

Never pass up the opportunity to eat or go to the toilet.

Very wise words.

I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright and when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice, but still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty now that they’re gone. I guess I just miss my friend.

A soliloquy from The Shawshank Redemption which was a film that took me far too long to get to.  A bit of a tearjerker and I love the delivery of it in the film.  A very true quote.

 

 

Just be in love and I’ll kiss you like you’ve always wanted
Just close your eyes, I’ll still live as if I’m dying

If I don’t make your heart skip a beat then hate me
If I don’t make you feel anything then its me

I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life
I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life

Just close your eyes and I’ll kiss you like there’s no tomorrow

If I don’t make your heart skip a beat then hate me
If I don’t make you feel anything then its me

I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life
I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life

So sleep now, so deep in static
Drifting in the shadows
Hold me close to the fourwall headlights
And TV screens

I just want you to feel beautiful
For once in your life

Here’s Everything I’ve Always Meant to Say by Jamison Parker

(Hmm, I never read those lyrics quite like that before.  It works nicely with the Shawshank quote.)
