My Favourite Quotes Of All Time (Collab!)

Ever since I can remember I’ve been a huge fan of Mark Twain and even though I never learnt much about him in school I did my own research and the more I read about him the more I admired him not just as a writer but as a human being. He was one of the most intelligent people I have ever read about and I could really relate to what he talked about. So here are two quotes that I have always deeply agreed with and understood.

I feel like a lot of what we learn in school is censored or has very little value in our lives in the future. If you’re really interested in something don’t rely on your school or teachers to teach you about it. Do your own research and learn about it yourself!

I couldn’t agree more with this quote. Just because the majority supported something doesn’t mean it is the right thing. Do what YOU believe is right and live your life as you want to.

CHECK OUT DAVID’S POST HERE. It is awesome (and I’m not just saying that because he said nie things about me… okay maybe a little!) 😂

My Role Models

On my “Ideas” post I got a really awesome idea from The Wanderlust to write about my role model or idol but the truth is there are so many people who inspire me so I am going to write about a few of them in this post and why they inspire me.

Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr– The thing I admire most in them is that they were both pacifists and they were not afraid to stand up for what they believed in. They fought not for themselves but for equality for all. I’ve always had a pretty bad temper and I really let things get to me sometimes and even though I have calmed down considerably since I was a teenager and I always say I’m a pacifist I still get really mad sometimes even about little things and just want to punch someone. But these men remained peaceful no matter what, they achieved true pacifism and inspired so many to be peaceful and to unite. I am truly in awe of all they have achieved.

Maya Angelou– Ever since I read “I Know Why The Caged Birds Sing” I have been absolutely obsessed with Maya Angelou. Not only is she amazing at everything she does but she has been through so many struggles and come out of it stronger then before. She grew up having far less then a normal childhood and yet she grew up to be the amazing person we are so inspired by.

Mark Twain and Dr. Seuss– As a writer I am really inspired by their work. But apart from them being great writer I also really like their personalities. I couldn’t agree more with their values, way of life, morals and beliefs. When I read their quotes and about their life I just feel like I can really relate to what they’re saying and talking about. I really hope to someday be as amazing as they are and not just as a writer but as a person too.

Enid Blyton– My parents used to read her books to me at night before I went to sleep and they just had almost every book she wrote and I grew up reading her books on almost a daily basis. She is definitely one of my favorite authors and her books have inspired me so much. They taught me to be kind, understanding, brave and accepting and I still enjoy reading her books to this day.

My Parents- I think this list would be incomplete if I didn’t say my parents are a huge inspiration to me. They’ve always taught me to be accepting, peaceful, loving and kind. They always taught me right from wrong and they always did their best so that I could have everything I ever wanted and so that I could have a better life then they did. They are really amazing and continue to inspire me everyday.
