our favorite quotations

I think this an an appropriate quote for my 100th post.

When I was younger I used to keep an notebook full of quotes. Whether it was a song lyric, a poem, a line in a book, I needed to write it down and keep it with me. From time to time I would flip through the pages when I needed some inspiration, but mostly to find the rights words to my feelings. I never truly felt able to express myself with my own words and found comfort in seeing how others could so effortlessly. 
With my discovery of the blogging world I was finally able to start my online notebook and share it with whoever was listening. I'm sure there are people out there that feel exactly the same as I do and I hope they find comfort in my findings.
If there is one thing I can suggest to them it would be to still carry a little notebook. They may get lost at times, but you will stumble upon them later in life. And when you do, take a second. Flip through the pages, feel the crinkle of old, maybe coffee stained, paper and let yourself travel back in time. I promise it will leave you with a smile on your face. You may even see a quote in a different light. 

So yes, John Green, my favorite quotations say a lot about me...probably more then I know.
