Blogspiration is a Brand Spankin' New weekly meme hosted by both GrowingUp YA and Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers and writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation and just a little SOMETHING.
So with this week's Blogspiration we are presented with a question. A question that I have been thinking about for a couple days:
What is your favorite literary quote? Think about that ONE quote that speaks to your soul. The one you've considered tattooing onto your body or the one you've plastered all over the walls of your...um, heart?I've read a lot of great quotes in the past couple years so it's hard to remember them all. I even tried to look through a couple of my books that I have marked up to see if I could find my favorite. I did find one that I remembered thinking about days after finishing the book. So without further ado:
Answer: “There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don't help them by doing the job yourself.”
- Anita Blake from the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series by Laurell K. Hamilton.
So there it is. I just...like it. Nothing hugely profound but all together good advice. I'm an odd person with strong views and a strange sense of humor. I now love that about myself. What about you? What have your embraced about yourself?
