Inspirational and Thoughtful Quotes on Love, Life, and Truth PART III

Updated on November 8, 2012

This is Part III of a collection of quotes. I will publish the next parts as I write them. Thanks for reading!

“For you, the world.”

“It’s a shame that when it comes to love, or at least dating, most people follow their pride instead of their heart; they’re more concerned with not wanting to appear desperate or ‘needy’—not allowing themselves to feel the most natural of human emotions. To miss a person you like and to let them know is natural. They do not allow themselves to be vulnerable with another person for fear of getting hurt. To not experience the closeness that vulnerability can create between two people is a greater loss than any pain that may come after being vulnerable.”

“The sweetest sound a human make is laughter.”

“To catch a truly beautiful bird, you must not think about ‘catching’ it about it at all. You must allow it to come to you.”

“They say I am living in a world of illusion, but I think I am just refusing to live in their world of illusion.”

“I can promise you that if he should build you a house, I will build you a castle; if he should fight a beast for you, I will fight a thousand more; if he should bring you a flower, I will bring you a garden; if he should promise you a star, I promise you all the heavens above.”

-From The Little Messenger, a short story by Carlos Salinas

“Love is not about chasing someone; it’s not about being chased or being the one chasing. It’s about chasing after dreams and if in that pursuit someone runs parallel to you, that is love.”

“The word ‘friend’ is one letter away from the word ‘fiend’. The missing letter is ‘r’ and that is very interesting because it asks the question: “Are your ‘friends’ there for you.”

“Just because we will never be perfect does not mean we should ever stop improving ourselves.”

“Poetry to me is taking any idea; love or hate, joy or sorrow, life or death, good or bad; and making it a feeling -nay, an event -that encompasses every sense that we feel. That only begins to describe what poetry is.”

“Words are powerful; they can destroy, humiliate, and hurt but they can also create, encourage, and be kind. Once said they can never be unsaid; once heard they can never be unheard. Therefore, choose your words carefully.”

“To be a writer of fiction is truly a challenging thing; you have to be the hero and the villain; you have to be the lover and the unloved; you have to rejoice and sorrow; you have to be the wise man and the fool; I would not have it any other way.”
