Blogspiration: Quotes to Live Your Life By... and Tattoo

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.

 What is your favorite literary quote? Think about that ONE quote that speaks to your soul. The one you've considered tattooing onto your body or the one you've plastered all over the walls of your...um, heart?
I LOVE quotes. I loved quoting lines from the books Ive read and including them on my reviews, because it makes the story more interesting.  If I were asked what quote I would tattoo on my skin, I would put this one word. ASHES. This one word has so much impact to me.

He had reduced me to ashes.
And now I would rise.”  - DON'T BREATHE A WORD by Holly Cupala
I loved this quote, it has a lot of meaning if you just think about it. That no matter what happened in our lives, no matter what mistake we made, we can always start over again. Like the Phoenix from the ashes, we rise...

 and now we dance! :) x

More quotes that I really love. Because I am not a perfect person but I try my really best for those people I love and I am probably still finding myself. :)

“Sometimes it’s the mistakes that turn out to be the
best parts of life,”- The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan

“Because you fight it out, and stumble, and write bad poetry, and pick yourself up again, and at the end, hopefully, someday youre sitting with your kid on her bedroom floor, talking about how you screwed everything up too.”- Faking Faith by Jossie Bloss

  4. Ohhhhhhhh, Lalaine! <3 They say less is more and they're completely right -- that quote may be small, but it's so incredibly beautiful! He had reduced me to ashes... I haven't read that book yet but I just added it to my TBR pile now! And it's so cool how you mentioned the phoenix because that used to be my favourite creature! (When I was in love with X-men LOL but still...) x)
