I can't pick a favorite either... so is it okay if i put a couple??? These are definitely my favorites out of all quotes that I've heard :3

“The best thing we can do for the dead is to do their share of living with a smile.” ~ Train Heartnet (Black Cat)

"Stop waiting for Prince Charming. Get up and find him. The poor idiot may be stuck in a tree or something." ~ Anonymous

“Like most misery, it started with apparent happiness” ~ The Book Thief

"Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are." ~ The Book Thief

“Forgive my rudeness, but to hide your true self and make a vain display… I think that’s just running away from reality. To know what you are really like, and acknowledge it… A positive thinking of enjoying yourself… isn’t that what true strength is?” ~ Tamaki (Ouran HS Host Club)

"Wings that can’t fly still have a purpose, because no matter what happens they still hold the memories of being able to fly." ~ Yukito (Air TV)

“We cling to our fairy tales until the price for believing becomes too high.” ~ Ms. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how Extraordinary it was.” ~ Ms. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

“You never really forget a person, it just might take a while to remember them.” ~ Spirited Away

"Do not fear the winds of adversity. Remember: a kite rises against the wind rather than with it." ~ The Wind Rises

“You trusted me, so I’ll trust you, too. That’s what being friends means, doesn’t it?” ~ Rin Okumura (Blue Exorcist)

“By the day’s end I realized that there were a zillion ways to apologize to someone, but none of them mattered if you never opened your mouth.” ~ Anonymous

“Reality is for people that lack imagination.” ~ My Neighbor Totoro

Again, sorry that there were so many!!! I just love all of these and I have plenty more so this was kind of just a fraction of quotes I have stored on a google doc ^_^

I'm not much for using quotes myself, I'd prefer to use my own words to express something if needed. That being said I don't mind sharing one that I (and hopefully many of you) heard recently. This is CR after all :).

"You should enjoy the little detours. To the fullest. Because that's where you'll find the things more important than what you want."
-Ging Freecss, Hunter x Hunter.

The journey matters more than the destination. The means qualify the ends.

The proof of desire is pursuit. Message from my mentor that I try to live by. Basically, what you chase in life is what you really want, regardless of what you tell people. This goes for relationships, work, and, well, everything, really.

"Everyone is an enemy unless they prove otherwise." I've learned that in today's society, you're going to get your feelings hurt, one way or another. It's best to not trust anyone, unless they earn your trust.

I couldn't narrow it down to just one, so here are my two favorites:

"You always have a choice. Don't ever imagine you don't. Whatever you do, it's a decision and you have to accept responsibility for it. That's when honor becomes more than empty words." Seregil í Korit (Stalking Darkness)

"Those who forgive themselves and accept their true nature... they are the strong ones." Uchiha Itachi (Naruto)

A "few" of my favorites as it was impossible to single out one.

"Be yourself; everybody else is taken"

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.”

“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”

"What day is it?"
It's today," squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day," said Pooh.”

“You'll never find a rainbow if you're looking down”

"If I fall down 100 times and I give up. Will I ever get up?"

"Why do people prefer known hell to unknown paradise"

"Champions keep going when they don't have anything left in the tank"

"I just have to believe"

"It aint about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward"

"[Insert Gurren Lagann Quote here]"
