I love it when I read or hear someone say something funny or thoughtful, but I hate it when I have no one to share it with. For this reason I have added a Quote Pile to the sidebar, and will link it to this post where I will collect them all. I can’t think of a better quote to kick it off with than one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite movies. Enjoy!
“I assure you that my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair!”
— Annelle, in Steel Magnolias
“I don’t want to marry anyone who’s really wicked, but I wouldn’t mind marrying someone who could be wicked.”
– Anne Shirley, from Anne of Green Gables
“God calls us to a life involving frequent risks and many dangers. Why else would we need him to be our ezer [lifesaver]? You don’t need a lifesaver if your mission is to be a couch potato.”
– from Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul, by John and Stasi Eldredge
“…I opened the door to my houseboat, and I stood there a minute, and then I hung my head and said, ‘Fuck it, I quit.’ I took a long deep breath and said out loud, ‘Alright, you can come in.’ So this was my beautiful moment of conversion.”
– Annie Lammott, on the moment she became a Believer, as told in Traveling Mercies.
“Hey, you’re not allowed to do that when my mop is broken!”
– Jen, to Ruthie when she tossed her cereal bowl on the floor.
