“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”- Ernest Hemingway”
Thank you to Kingsman: The Secret Service for bringing this lovely quote to my attention. Remember, always remain true to self; it’s what’s necessary to be a better you than you were yesterday. For that it what matters most.
Check out the movie trailer below; I do recommend it.
“And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…” he murmured.- Edward Cullen
“What a stupid lamb,” I sighed.- Bella Swan
“What a sick, masochistic lion.”- Edward Cullen
–Twilight, by Stephenie Meyers
Ahh, this quote…beautiful, isn’t it? I absolutely love Twilight, both the book and movie series. I own all of the books and I will soon buy the movie collection–sorry guys, please don’t question my dedication! I’ve read the first book twice, and it was just as amazing the second time around; when I find the time, I will reread the others as well. Although the movies get a lot of flack and so many people complain about the Bella Swan and Edward Cullen love story, we can’t ignore the millions of fans out there that adore them. I mean come on, all of the books were best sellers, and according to Wikipedia, the movies have grossed over 3.3 billion dollars to date. That’s BILLION people! I don’t care what people say, they’re amazing. & although I don’t want immortality, I might give it a second thought to call myself Bella Swan Cullen 😉
If you guys haven’t read the books or seen the movies, I do recommend them. The links will be below!

Interesting thing, my dad happens to be a huge admirer of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.–as most are–and in the spirit of the times, he asked that God would bring him a child with the same spirit to help and love others. Apparently, that child was me! Now, I don’t know about me inspiring national movements or anything, but I do love and appreciate what he did. My birthday also happens to be the day before his–January 14th–which was apparently confirmation enough for my father :). So, in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, here are a few inspirational quotes. And remember, always act kindly and love cheerfully.
Every year we make new year resolutions and statistics show that most people don’t stick to those. I think that is important not to necessarily fulfill those resolutions, but to make sure that we are living each day with the hopes that it will be the best one yet! Don’t focus too much on the future, and try not to dwell in the past. Be sure that your present moment is your best moment.
