They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge it by its words. Whether it be a person, a movie, a favorite novel or a play, the things that we often find to be most interesting are what the people say. About two years ago, I started compiling a list of all of my favorite quotes and it’s become a sort of collection for me. While other people collect seashells or vinyl records, I collect words. It is my firm belief that the words we leave behind are the spurring factors of our legacy. Not only is leaving a legacy important to me, seeking out the legacy in others is a journey beyond comparison. The following are the favorite quotes of our fellow students as well as a few of my top choices.

 “Either the wallpaper goes, or I go.”

-Oscar Wilde

 “You are enough, you are so enough. It’s unbelievable how enough you are.”

-Sierra Boggess

 “I don’t see it as a loss of innocence, but as a loss of ignorance.”

-Hope Stratman

 “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

-Winston Churchill

 “That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up.”

-Walt Disney

 “What is stronger than the human heart, which shatters over and over and still lives?”

-Rupi Kaur

 “Excellence isn’t an art. It’s a pure habit. We are what we repeatedly do.”


 “Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can’t see where it keeps its brain.”

-Arthur Weasley

 “Most importantly love like its the only thing you know how. At the end of the day all this means nothing. This page where you’re sitting, your degree, your job, the money- nothing even matters except love and human connection- who you loved and how deeply you loved them, how you touched the people around you and how much you gave them.”

-Rupi Kaur

 “Leslie, I tried to make ramen in the coffee pot and I broke everything.”

-Andy Dwyer

 “What a treacherous thing it is to believe that a person is more than a person.”

-John Green

 “The tiger and the lion may be more powerful, but the wolf does not perform in the circus.”


 “I wonder how many people I’ve looked at all my life and never seen.”

-John Steinbeck

“We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.”

-Charles Bukowski

“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”


“Today me will live in the moment unless it’s unpleasant, in which case, me will eat a cookie.”

-Cookie Monster

“In all the wild world, there is no more desperate a creature, than a human being on the verge of losing love.”


“Appreciate the moment of a first kiss, it may be the last time you own your heart.”

-r.m. drake

“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.”

-Morticia Addams

“One day your life is going to flash before your eyes…make sure it’s worth watching.”

-Gerard Way
