I’m linking up with Stasha of The Good Life for Monday Listicles today for a prompt I couldn’t resist. Favorite quotes. Who doesn’t love a good quote? So here, in no particular order are 10 of my favorite quotes.
“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered.

- From Say Anything
”America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, ’cause it’s gonna put up a fight. It’s gonna say You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country can’t just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the land of the free.”
- From The American President
- From Harry Potter
“Now There are some things we all know, but we don’t take’m out and look at’m very often. We all know that something is eternal. And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth and it ain’t even stars…everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you’d be surprised how people are always losing hold of it. There’s something way down deep that’s eternal about every human being.”
- From Our Town by Thornton Wilder
-From Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
“Some of it’s magic. Some of it’s tragic, but I had a good life all the way.”
