I started collecting quotes when I was a pre-teen, filling journal after journal with them. Some were religious, some were funny, some were uplifting, some made me cry.

It's hard to remember all these awesome quotes now, since there's so many, so I thought this would be a great way to organize my quotes by categories, for easy reference, not only for myself, but others as well.

Therapy is expensive.  Popping bubble wrap is cheap.  You choose!
If it looks good, you'll see it.  If it sounds good, you'll hear it.  If it's marketed right, you'll buy it.  But if it's real, you'll feel it. - Kid Rock
When it comes time to die... make sure all you got to do is die.
Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace.  And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace.
Following the path of least resistance is what makes rivers and men crooked.
There are two things I've learned; there is a God, and I'm not Him.
Learn from the mistakes of others.  You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at a time and sometimes you weep.
Did it ever occur to you that nothing occurs to God?
Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you respond to it.
People gather bundles of sticks to build bridges they never cross.
Lead your life so you won't be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.
I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to.
Sometimes the majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.
A coincidence is when God preforms a miracle, and decides to remain anonymous.
Real friends are those who, when you feel you've made a fool of yourself, don't feel you've done a permanent job.
Going to church does not make you a Christian anymore than going to McDonald's makes you a hamburger.
There is a think line between confidence and conceit, no one should ever cross it. - Joshua Chasez
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. - Franklin D. Roosevelt
A conclusion is what you've come to when you reach the point where you can't think anymore.
God can mend all broken hearts, you just have to give him all the pieces.
Watch your thoughts, they become your words.  Watch your words, they become your actions.  Watch your actions, they become a way of life.  Watch your life, it becomes your destiny.
As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools.
If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.  Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.
Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color.
I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long.  If we're in each others dreams, we can be together all the time. - Calvin and Hobbes
What we call human nature is actually human habit.
I have studied many times the marble which was chiseled for me.  A boat with a furled sail at rest in a harbor.  In truth it pictures not my destination, but my life.  For love was offered me and I shrank from it's disillusionment; sorrow knocked at my door, but I was afraid; ambition called to me, but I dreaded the chances.

Yet all the while I hungered for meaning in my life.  And now I know that we must lift the sale and catch the winds of destiny where ever they drive the boat.  To put meaning in one's life may end in madness, but life without meaning is the torture of restlessness and vague desire.  it is a boat, longing for the sea, and yet afraid.
My 3 White Dresses

My mom bought me a white dress,
not red or pink or blue.
She said it was a special dress,
Like very other few
There has been just one before,
A dress now put away,
That I wore some time ago,
Upon my blessing day.
As a little baby clothed,
In my first white dress,
My dad held me in his arms,
There to name and bless.
So pure and clean I was just then
With time to grow and learn
About my Father's plan for me.
My glory I must earn.
Now I've reached the age to judge,
The wrong road from the right,
And I am here to be baptized;
In this dress of white.
So once again, I'm free from sin.
The path is clear to me.
I'll grasp the rod and hold on tight,
I vow with certainty.
Just as mud would stain my dress,
Sin would stain my soul.
The key is to repent or bleach,
For whiteness is my goal.
And if I try my very best,
Then richly blessed I'll be,
Wearing inside God's holy house,
White dress number three.
So today I make this pledge
I'll strive to choose the right,
Through this sacred baptism ordinance,
In my second dress of white.

Just a tiny speck of air.

And you are just not there.
