Make Me a Picture, Write Me a Line - Photo Quotes

Updated on December 4, 2013

Quotes and Photography

 I love collecting inspirational/motivational quotes especially one liners.  I usually read them when I need some perking up. I started my collection a long time ago. I always keep a small notebook in my bag and would scribble something that catches my attention from books, billboards, posters, wrappers, movies, tv, from almost anywhere.

When I started my photography, I found that I have some photos that perfectly fit some quotes. So I started putting photos and quotes together and printed them as gifts to friends. My friends love them and even ask if I make cards out of these. Well, I have not yet made cards, but maybe I should start thinking about doing so since my friends ask for them anyway. Maybe I should think about going into some card business and give Hallmark a run for its money. Ha ha ha.  Hmm... why not?

Anyway, here are a few quotes that I have scribbled on my photos.

On Adversity

We always encounter adversities in our lives. How do we deal with these? Do we let them pull us down or do we emerge as better persons because of them? Here are a few quotes that I have collected on this theme.

  • Don’t tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how big your God is – Anonymous
  • Adversity is just sand on your path to prevent you from skidding – Anonymous
  • A brook would lose its song if God removed the rocks - anonymous
  • I made it through the rain... Barry Manilow

On adversity

God and storm in our life
God and storm in our life
sand on our path
sand on our path
song of a brook
song of a brook
rain in our life
rain in our life

On believing

Motivational and inspirational quotes always talk of dreams and of believing they will come true. We must learn to trust and believe in ourselves and in a Supreme Being who guides us.

Here are two quotes.

  • I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows... Erwin Drake - Irvin Graham, Jimmy Shirl, Al Stillman
  • Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true –anonymous

On Believing

for every drop of rain that falls
for every drop of rain that falls
dream your dream
dream your dream

OnTaking Charge

It is said that God helps those who help themselves. So that means we have to actively take part in the making of our destiny. We have to take charge.

Here are a few quotes to inspire us along the way.

  • Life isn’t waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain – anonymous
  • If life is so blue then select another color from the rainbow – anonymous
  • Don't ask God to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to move your feet – anonymous
  • Don’t  go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Taking Charge

rain dance
rain dance
wish me a rainbow
wish me a rainbow
move it
move it
trail blazers
trail blazers

On Making a Difference

It is only when we are able to make a difference in someone's life that we can say we have lived.

Take a look at these quotes.

  • The world is a rose, smell it and pass it to your friends – Persian proverb
  • In this life, we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love – Mother Teresa

Make A Difference

pass the rose
pass the rose
doing small things with great love
doing small things with great love

So those are some of the quotes I have added to my photos. Would you like to add some to my collection?
