52 Lists // Week 15 - List Your Favorite Quotes

This week's list from MOOREASEAL, couldn't have come at a better time. My thoughts and prayers go for the people in Boston in this time of need & confusion. I saw it on yahoo yesterday and I think I couldn't process yet another incident at first, like I didn't know what I was reading because it was so shocking. I hope the Boston police & investigators find anything to pinpoint how this was done or who so this does not happen again. 

From this event, a bubbly comedic actor said a great quote to start off my list that obviously from the power and strength of his words went viral. Patton Oswalt said,

“So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will.’”  - Patton Oswalt

Also a quote came back up the years,  I never knew came from my favorite trolley owner morning cartoon friend, Mr. Rogers:

Yes there are always helpers. 

I truly am a lover of quotes. I have notebooks full of them and I keep fortune cookies as well. I could write this list for days, maybe even weeks.  So I can only give you a few...

Here are just a few of my other favorite quotes:

“I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they are the first to be rescued off of sinking ships.” 

 "It's always something..." 
― Gilda Radner 

A year from now, you will wish you had started today
- Karen Lamb

"If your dreams don't scare you, they are not big enough."
-Ellen Johson Sirleaf

"Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone."
-Neale Donald Walsh

"Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dream?"
- Tim Burton

"I'm so proud of you."
- My Mom & Dad

"I have a head for business and a bod for sin. Is there anything wrong with that?"
- Working Girl movie

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy" 
- Anne Frank

I could literally go on forever with this list so I'm going to stop here. 

Be safe everyone, and I will see you here tomorrow. =)
