And funny enough, one of mine is from Carrie, also:

“I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love”


Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass – It’s about dancing in the rain

“As I stay in a constant position of worship, I let God. As I let God the pressure comes off of me to be different, and as the pressure comes off of me to be different, I realize I am.”
-Theresa Klacman

“The Bible is no mere book, but it’s a living creature with a power that conquers all who oppose it.” Napoleon

Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends.
P.S. I Love You

“It is real guys… in the movie”

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person who wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You will have your heart broken more than once, and it’s harder everytime. You’ll break hearts, too, so remember what it felt like when yours was broken. You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll blame a new love for the things an old one did. You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and eventually, you’ll lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you’ve never been hurt, because every sixty seconds you spend being upset is one minute that you’ll never get back.

Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?

Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night. 
(The Village)

Callie: “Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?”
Meredith: “No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.”
Cristina: “Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.”
(Grey’s Anatomy)

Jack: “…there’s gonna be some things that you are going to be able to get, that other people in the office don’t get… one of them: Gym membership.
Alison Scott: You want me to lose weight?
Jack: [laughing] No, I don’t want you to lose weight!
Jill: No, uh, we can’t legally ask you to do that.
Jack: We didn’t say lose weight… I might say tighten.
Alison Scott: Tight?
Jack: Tighter.
Jill: Just liked toned and smaller.
Jack: Don’t make everything smaller, I don’t wanna generalize that way… tighter.
Jill: We don’t want you to lose weight, we just want you to be healthy. Y’know, by eating less.
Alison Scott: OK.
Jill: We would just like it if you go home and step on the scale, and write down how much you weigh, and subtract it by like, 20.
Alison Scott: 20.
Jill: And then weigh that much. “

From my fb profile:

“Love is not merely a sentiment. Sentiments come and go. A sentiment can be a marvelous first spark, but it is not the fullness of love…Love is never ‘finished’ and complete; throughout life, it changes and matures, and thus remains faithful to itself.” – Pope Benedict XVI

“The only reason a person should exist is to be the best he can…I’ve heard all the reasons why you can’t reach perfection. I want to tell you something. We are either going to reach it, or we’re going to come so close that the average person won’t know the difference. To strive for perfection means you’ve got to be totally dedicated. It can’t be an occasional thing – it’s got to be a total dedication in everything that you do. If you don’t have total dedication to perfection in your life, then I believe your attitude toward life is flawed.” – Lou Holtz

“But just now . . . and just so many times, how I long for the Grotto. Away from the Grotto Dooley just prays. But at the Grotto, especially now when there must be snow everywhere and the lake is ice glass and that triangular fountain on the left is frozen solid and all the priests are bundled in their too-large too-long old black coats and the students wear snow boots . . . if I could go to the Grotto now then I think I could sing inside. I could be full of faith and poetry and loveliness and know more beauty, tenderness and compassion . . . knowing prayers from here are just as good as from the Grotto doesn’t lessen my gnawing, yearning passion to be there.” – Tom Dooley

(That last one is a reference to the Grotto at Notre Dame, my alma mater…it’s my happy place, so I love that quote about it)

I took down all of my quotes so I could make my employment information public while I was job searching. I wanted potential employers to see I was professional, not quirky. I am quirky, however, and these were the quotes I had up.

History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

Then he loathed his own beauty, and flinging the mirror on the floor, crushed it into silver splinters beneath his heel.” – Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“‘Rangers?’ HO!’It’s Yurek! You fucking assholes!’ Fuck!’ We almost fucking killed you! Well, come to us!’ Fuck you! Come to me!'” – Black Hawk Down

Your heart beats best when it beats for others.

“You know when you’re doing a jigsaw puzzle and the piece looks like it should fit exactly, but it doesn’t? So you try to squeeze it in, but you know it’s not the right piece. But you’re lazy, so you leave that piece there. You really should find the right piece.” – Ellen Degeneres

“Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.” – Anton Chekhov

“Erin, just between me and you…. there’s a soft spot in my heart for that woman.” – Grandpa

Bob: (sad voice, morning breakfast after a friend’s wedding reception) I didn’t even kiss anyone last night, I’m kind of disappointed.
Me: I thought I saw you and Jenn kissing?
Bob: Oh yeah…she DID kiss me a couple of times!
(later) Sara: What took you so long to get back to the hotel?
Bob: I walked the drunkest bridesmaid home.
Me: And you didn’t kiss her?

Yeah, we’re warmed up.
Warmed up like biscuits.
Dance biscuits.
~SNL skit w/ Beyonce and JT! 🙂

“Love is everything it’s cracked up to be…It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.” – Erica Jong
