Blog Every Day in May Day Four: Favourite Quotes

Only me again!

I can't believe it's already the fourth day of May! This year is just flying by. It's already Day Four of the Blog Every Day in May Challenge, which is a challenge set by Story of My Life, and today's theme is 'Favourite Quote (from a person, from a book etc) and why you love it.'

Well, it just so happens that I'm a big fan of quotes. I love looking to quotes for inspiration and finding wise words I can relate to, or can use for comfort, motivation, or just generally inspire to live by. I'm particularly obsessed with song lyrics; I even have a notebook I'm filling with favourites, which help to inspire me when I need them most. I can also quote certain movies, and TV shows, and love certain extracts from books, but I rarely remember to write them down.

So, instead of sharing one quote, I'm going to share many! I don't do things by halves.

Favourite Quotes

These are quotes and sayings I love and believe in. I often turn to quotes when I'm having a particularly bad day with pain and struggling to cope. They help to reassure me.









Positive breeds positivity.

It ain't the destination, it's the ride.

Favourite Song Lyrics

I have A LOT of favourite song lyrics. I love music, and lyrics just speak to me. Some are inspiring, some I can relate to, others are just beautifully written, or humorous. Here's a bunch of favourites that came to mind.
