I collect quotes. I try to write them down in a composition book but most of the time, I scribble them on a scrap piece of paper or print it out and stick in loose in the book. Here are some that I found to add to my faves:

there are worse things than being alonebut it often takes decades to realize thisand most often when you doit’s too lateand there’s nothing worsethan too late. — Oh Yes - Charles Bukowski

To live in this world
you must be ableto do three things:to love what is mortal;to hold it
against your bones knowingyour own life depends on it;and, when the time comes to let it go,to let it go. — from "In Blackwater Woods" by Mary Oliver

I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know? — Ernest Hemingway

Use what talents you possess, the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. — Henry Van Dyke

There is a light that never goes out and it’s called hope. — Morrissey

Don’t do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts. — Henry Rollins
When life gives you limes, make margaritas. -Unknown.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them. — Dalai Lama

Sometimes, love lost does not hurt half as bad as a love that never had a chance to grow. Sometimes you meet people that change everything, but more often, you change everything for someone you never even meet. — Tyler Knitt

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life. — Albert Camus

Hate is just a word for somebody you love but no longer believe in. — Hugh Macleod
