Products of My Mind-A collection of Random Quotes

I love words- you can say so many interesting things

"When you finally figure out who you are-do everything you can to be yourself".
"When you finally figure out who you are-do everything you can to be yourself".

Quotes can do a lot, with very few words.

There are people that collect 101 Random Quotes by 101 Random Writers, Books and Movies. I am one that loves quotes. I love quick sentences that can inspire, that can catch someone off guard, or will lighten up the mood.

I can not lie, I have my fair share of books filled with quotations from a variety of writers and thinkers. Instead of thumbing through hundreds of Quotes which I have enjoyed, I have decided to share some of the words that have come out of my mouth, some of the things I told another to try and make them laugh, smile, feel comfort or because I had no real clue what to say so I just blurted out something. Some have been used in a few of my hubs-so if you get a bit of dejavue- it is okay, you are not going nuts... you have read it before.

I would love to know what you think of my Randomness-so if you feel inclined to leave a comment- your feedback is more than welcome.

Referances to Food can be helpful in getting your point across

"Would you enjoy some moldy cheese with that bitter whine you are working on"?
"Would you enjoy some moldy cheese with that bitter whine you are working on"?

They don't last long enough to justify the expense (take that as you wish)

"If batteries weren't so damn expensive-Id be single."
"If batteries weren't so damn expensive-Id be single."

and tell me why we are competing again?

"I didn’t realize that they were interviewing to replace God- with all that judgment you’re passing around-you must be a great contender for the position"

"It is not that you are always wrong; it’s that I am not ready to admit that I’m not always right"

"Something smells, oh wait-No…It’s just your rotten attitude-you really should do something about that-it is quite offensive."

"You say I live in a fantasy. Perhaps? -any reality in which you are right, needs a fantasy world to escape to."


Sometimes I reference historical figures-

"Calm down and Chill out Napoleon, the war wasn't won by losing your cool and throwing a temper tantrum"
"Calm down and Chill out Napoleon, the war wasn't won by losing your cool and throwing a temper tantrum"

Crazy is as Crazy Admits

"I may be crazy, but I can take medication for crazy-Is there medication for being an A**hole, or are you incurable?"
"I may be crazy, but I can take medication for crazy-Is there medication for being an A**hole, or are you incurable?"

Learn to laugh a little...

"Consider each day you wake up-breathe-live-and go back to bed, a successful day."

"If you are always following others, the best you will ever achieve is 2nd place." By J.M Porter (this one is my husbands quote-he said it and I think it has a lot of truth to it)

"I don’t want to be the shadow that always follows behind, I would rather be the sun that lights the way"

"Being normal has so many rules and boundaries. I like crazy, it gives you much more room to explore all the options that normal doesn’t include."

Them there sound like fighting words...

"Just because you say I cant-doesn't mean that you are right"
"Just because you say I cant-doesn't mean that you are right"

Can you say that again please?

"The way that we choose to view our experiences in life, determines how we will live the rest of our lives."

"Does it really matter how I believe in God, as long as I believe? If God created both you and me, I am pretty sure he is cool with us both of us."

"Don’t attempt to break me, you may get a shock when I bend, then bounce back and smack you in the face."

Mother Nature can Suggest So Much....

"If we all started out as larva- some of us would turn into beautiful butterflies or sweet honey creating bees- while others would be poop eating flies and blood sucking mosquitoes."

Good stuff, Holly. But tell the truth. . .

"The way that we choose to view our experiences in life, determines how we will live the rest of our lives."

"Does it really matter how I believe in God, as long as I believe? If God created both you and me, I am pretty sure he is cool with us both of us."

"Don’t attempt to break me, you may get a shock when I bend, then bounce back and smack you in the face."

These three are original, right? They sound like you. And each one, in my view, is exactly right.

Thanks for an encouraging read.


H.C Porter profile image

H.C Porter 6 years ago from Lone Star State Author

Yes sir-they are all me and all original-except for one or two, which are my husband-but the rest are products of my mind :) Thanks Ken, for taking the time to read and comment :)

H.C., another great one.

"I may be crazy, but I can take medication for crazy-Is there medication for being an A**hole, or are you incurable?"

I'm adding that one to my arsenal.

H.C Porter 6 years ago from Lone Star State Author

samboiam, lol-thanks, I take that as a huge compliment. It is a really great come back for when the idiots in the world attempt to humiliate the ones who are a little different that they are. Thanks for the comment, I am glad that you found one that you can use :)

"Being normal has so many rules and boundaries. I like crazy, it gives you much more room to explore all the options that normal doesn’t include."

This is my favorite here babe, I love playing by my own rules, you find out so many things other people have missed1

I rated this one up!


H.C Porter profile image

H.C Porter 6 years ago from Lone Star State Author

Richie, Thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked that one. I am sure that many people can relate to it, just as you and I can...Everyone seems to put limits to what they are capable of when they consider themselves normal...Crazy has no limits-the imagination gives much unique insight and prospect :)
