So one of the best things about reading a book is coming across a quote you resonate with. You know, the kind of quote that makes you go like, 'Yes, that is so true!'.
The kind you'd want to get a tattoo of, or at least share with everyone on Twitter. They are the best thing ever because, not only do they speak to you, but they also sum up the things that you would want to say, but never know how to.
Soooo below I've compiled a couple of quotes from two books that I read this month and totally loved. I hope you find one that you like as well:)
You are a Badass by Jennifer Sincero quotes.
"Faith is the best buddy when you're scared shitless."
"Do not waste your precious time giving one single crap about what anybody else thinks about you."
"You are more than enough. Avoid comparison like the plague."
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
"Face your fears with the truth, that they are all in your mind, and they will lose their power over you."
"The people you surround yourself with are excellent mirrors for who you are and how much, or how little, you love yourself."
The Sun and her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
"life does not stop for anybody
it drags you by the legs
whether you want to move forward or not."
and act like it never happened
they come back
and act like they never left."
"this place makes me
the kind of exhausted that has
nothing to do with sleep
and everything to do with
the people around me."
"i just learn to act like a lady
but the problem is
that doesn’t even make sense
i can’t wrap my head around the fact
that i have to convince half the world’s population
my body is not their bed."
"there are mountains growing
beneath our feet
that cannot be contained
all we’ve endured
has prepared us for this
bring your hammers and fists
we have a glass ceiling to shatter."
- let’s leave this place roofless
otherwise the butterfly
surrounded by a group of moths
unable to see itself
will keep trying to become the moth."
Note: I'm still reading You are a Badass by Jen Sincero but I'll write a review of this book for you guys, because this book is just changing my life page by page. It's that awesome.
