Quotations that help me when I'm going through tough times in life or I just feel stuck:

"When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better."

-Elton Pope 
Doctor Who, Season 2, Episode 10

"No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world."

-John Keating
Dead Poets Society

"At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough, and what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey."

-Letter from the parents of the Baudelaire orphans
A Series of Unfortunate Events (Movie)

"One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel."
Doctor Who, Season 2, Episode 4

Quotations that describe who I am and what I think:

-Anne Shirley
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montegomery

Quotations that help me see all sides of situations and help me understand:

“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.” 
-The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

"It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

"...understanding as had the ancients that angels and demons were identical - interchangeable archetypes - all a matter of polarity: the guardian angel who conquered your enemy in battle was perceived by your enemy as a demon destroyer."
