"You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars; you have a right to be here" Desideratus
I wanted to do something a little more involved, but I'm running out of time so this little piece I did with some Sharpie pens will have to do. Quote is from "Getting Sodas" by The World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid To Die.
“Who has but once dined his friends has tasted what it is to be Caesar.” - Melville, Moby Dick
Found the quote"i can live my life the way i want to"
I have dreamt in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
Feeny needed to be on my walls.
My wall art to hang my running medal on
want to use "dont follow your dreams... chase them"
'Love her but leave her wild'
Should use something from Brooke Gladstone

I totally forgot that I did find something with one of my inspirational quotes and I did buy the thing!
Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
* Je prends mes désirs pour des réalités car je crois en la realité de mes desirs.
(I treat my desires as realities because I believe in the reality of my desires.)
Nous ne voulons pas d'un monde où la certitude de ne pas mourir de faim s'échange contre le risque de mourir d'ennui.
(We don't want a world where freedom from dying from hunger comes at the risk of dying of boredom.)
* Le patron a besoin de toi, tu n'as pas besoin de lui.
(The boss needs you. You don't need him.)
“And why don't you write? Write! Writing is for you, you are for you; your body is yours, take it. I know why you haven't written. (And why I didn't write before the age of twenty-seven.) Because writing is at once too high, too great for you, it's reserved for the great-that is for "great men"; and it's "silly."
Besides, you've written a little, but in secret. And it wasn't good, because it was in secret, and because you punished yourself for writing, because you didn't go all the way, or because you wrote, irresistibly, as when we would masturbate in secret, not to go further, but to attenuate the tension a bit, just enough to take the edge off. And then as soon as we come, we go and make ourselves feel guilty-so as to be forgiven; or to forget, to bury it until the next time.”
― Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa
“To be noticed is to be loved.”
― Ali Smith, There But for The
“Cause nobody's the slightest idea who we are, or who we were, not even we ourselves – except, that is, in the glimmer of a moment of fair business between strangers, or the nod of knowing and agreement between friends. Other than these, we go out anonymous into the insect air and all we are is the dust of colour, brief engineering of wings towards a glint of light on a blade of grass or a leaf in a summer dark.”
― Ali Smith
“She had the swagger of a girl. She blushed like a boy. She had a girl’s toughness. She has a boy’s gentleness. She was as meaty as a girl. She was as graceful as a boy. She was as brave and handsome and rough as a girl. She was as pretty and delicate and dainty as a boy. She turned boys' heads like a girl. She turned girls' heads like a boy. She made love like a boy. She made love like a girl. She was so boyish it was girlish, so girlish it was boyish, she made me want to rove the world writing our names on every tree. I had simply never found someone so right. Sometimes this shocked me so much that I was unable to speak.”
― Ali Smith, Girl Meets Boy: The Myth of Iphis
“I'll tell you a secret.
Something they don't teach you in your temple.
The Gods envy us.
They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed.
You will never be lovelier than you are now.
We will never be here again.”
I can finally upload the picture! I love how this came out. The "personally inspirational quote": "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you butter, flour, sugar, and eggs, preheat the oven."

i created a digital art photo manipulation with a favorite quote. "In the end, the only thing you regret at the chances you didn't take."
It’s not about where you are now, or even where you hope to go, it’s who you are that matters. Don’t let your place in the world dictate who you are to anyone. We all have the same merit. - Stephen Colbert

This is one of my favourite lyrics from a Korean song, it means something good will happen after something bad. I made this in December.
"We may not have it all together, but together we have it all"
Everything is going to be okay in the end.
If not, it's not the end.
I'm so lazy, this is so simple
but is a good quote from zine A Story of Lost Things #2 | http://ahistoryoflostthings.blogspot.com
1. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
2. Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense, and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.
Stay on track
If you can dream it, you can do it
When I was 5 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
I ordered a custom gold foil print that says, "Don't be delicate-be vast and brilliant".
"You deserve no part of me and that includes my anger"
Didn't even realize I was doing this when I just ordered myself a pretty neat Christmas present. Stay tuned... 11/29/13
