I have an uncle who loves to read as much as I do and he asked me to keep a book of quotes that is my own book for writing down words I find inspirational or beautiful from the volumes of books I read and also memorable lines I hear from the shows I love to watch. According to him, "you never know how true a quote is until you go through something that makes you remember those words."
I posted some of my first collection and I am gathering others. I came across a beautiful quote or two that I feel should be shared on their own and not lumped into one page with a whole load of others. I had these as notes on my Facebook page but I think this is a great way to preserve them because I usually delete some of my Facebook notes. So, here are the ones that are too beautiful that they deserve to stand on their own;
· You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect-you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together, but, if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can... The Great Bob Marley.
· I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say till death do us part. But I won't. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. And I do not stand here, on my wedding day, optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. And I know. I am a heart man. I take them apart. I put them back together. I hold them in my hands. I ... am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands. I promise you ... me. Burke Preston’s wedding vows on Grey’s Anatomy.
