Favorite Quote and Why

“We all bear scars…Mine just happen to be more visible than most”

– Sarah J Maas, Throne of Glass.

“You could rattle stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it too, and that’s what scares you the most”

– Sarah J Maas, Throne of Glass.

 

I know I chose two but I simply couldn’t decide between these two and they sort of complement each other (or maybe it’s just me…).

 

The first one I love because it shows that we are all human, we all have scars. Some of us have physical scars and others have emotional ones – but we have them and that’s what is important. Physical scars can be seen far more easily which is what the quote references to but that doesn’t mean that emotional scars aren’t as severe or as devastating. Your scar could be the mark depression left on your life or the mark whips left on your back. Either way, some people might have no choice but to bare their scars and others will try to hide them with their life – it makes no difference. We all have them and they represent something that we went through. The important thing to remember here is that we made it, we made it through whatever we had to go through. This one struck a chord with me because it is a reminder of the scars I bear and that people around me bear scars too.

 

 

 

 

The second one is about how you could do just about anything “if only, you dared”. And the thing is, we know that – and if you don’t then I’m telling you now – we can do anything and sometimes that scares us into not doing anything. If we dared we could do much more than just “rattle the stars”, we could shake the universe, we could tear apart the sky. Somewhere inside you, there’s a part that says “You can do anything” but humans are scared of breaking from their normal routine and they ignore that part of you until it gives up entirely. I am someone who is scared of that part of me but I’m trying not to be – this quote serves as motivation to push myself to become better. And I want everyone to know; Don’t let that be you. Do whatever you want and do it so that no one can ignore you.

I just found my favourite quote by an author.

A good writing habit? Hmmm. A hot water bottle and a wank

The second one I love. It's also one of my favorites. I haven't finished the series yet and it's quite sad because I ruined who she ends up with and now I'm, ugh.
