Let’s Talk About…. Quotes To Live By

This month we are talking about a different topic every day to sort of bring you variety and to maybe even start a discussion at the end of each article. All the topics have been researched and been taken off of other 30 day challenges.



We all love quotes, we all love the random pictures on social media of quotes that are meant to inspirational and life changing. Some are not the biggest fan of quotes but I quite like them if they are good or funny. I keep a written record of quotes that I like because they are always fun to read when you are having a metaphorical rainy day. Some are from famous people, a lot are from television and films but that is because a lot of the quotes I like are silly and funny there are only a select few i would say I like because they are inspirational to me. So today I thought I would discuss some of my personal favourite quotes.

A good cup of tea begins in delight and ends in wisdom”

Let’s be honest a great cup of tea can solve pretty much ANYTHING and this quote is one of the best things ever – because once you have a really good cuppa (with a sneaky biscuit) you see life in a different light and a lot more clearer.

I dream my paintings and paint my dreams  – Van Gogh

I really love this quote because I am someone who loves to reach for the stars and keep trying to reach my dreams. I think this quote is wonderful and really one you should think about a lot.

The world is a book, and those who don’t travel read only a page” – St. Augustine

I love to travel and I really love this quote because I really think it is true, the more you travel the more open your eyes become and the more you understand about the world. I think it is a great thing to do is travel and I always think of this quote.

“It goes to show everything you want in life you get and you can’t work for it, it just comes to you” Michael Scott – The Office (US)

When you are going through a tough time, whether it be work, life, love, sometimes it can feel like there is nothing going right in the world and that everything is doomed to be bad. However, this quote does make sense – things happen the way they do. Things always happen for a reason and sometimes you can’t even plan it, it just happens.

“Every good film starts with the script. As does a bad film. A really bad film starts with The Script” – Ayoade on Ayoade

The only thing I really liked about Richard Ayoade’s autobiography was this quote – I really didn’t enjoy the book as I found it really hard to read and enjoy. This quote however amused me and I kept it with me because sadly a lot of the time this is true.


What are YOUR favourite quotes? we would love to hear them!
