"Life must move on. The world doesn't stop spinning just because you can't see the light of day. Life is waiting. Don't miss out on it. Every second is a chance to be born again. Embrace the opportunities life has to offer... regret is probably more painful than heartache. You can love again, but you can't live again."

Le Love, Breaking the Habit

*The opening line to this post got me right away. Hilarious and embarrassing, but so true. That needs to stop.

"I have this old-fashioned kind of love for the actual book as an object. There is something about holding that book in your hands and turning the pages. I like to see all of the books I've read sitting up on a shelf. I can look at them and remember things just looking at the spines of the books."

"What do I do now that you're gone... All I can hear in the silence that remains are the words I couldn't say."

Leighton Meester, Words I Couldn't Say
"They say when you've fallen off a horse, the first thing you've gotta do, of course, is... climb right back on."

Gwyneth Paltrow, A Fighter

*I can't help but quote every song from this album (and I'm getting close), but the songs that they chose for this movie really hit home for me. I think that's part of country music's charm, though... the fact that it can be so general and so specific at the same time. Everyone can relate to it in their own way, causing the lyrics to transform into the eye of the beholder (or should I say, the ear). Anyways, this song particularly struck me in a way that I don't even think it was supposed to.

The song is about fighting for a love that's fading... but out of context, this line in the song can really be applied love in general. So much of me wants to sport the Miranda motto, "I've given up on love cause love's given up on me," but I can't help but be inspired by the words of this song to walk it off and get back in the race.

"On the outside I look fragile,
but, on the inside, there's
something you can't crush.
I'm country strong,
hard to break,
like the ground I grew up on.
You may fool me,
and I'll fall,
but I won't stay down long."

Gwyneth Paltrow, Country Strong

"Playing coy is silly. Speak your mind. If a man gets turned off, he's the wrong man."

"You paint me a blue sky, and go back and turn it to rain. I lived in your chess game, but you changed the rules everyday."
