my favorite quote

Day 5

I have a few favorite quotes...

If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants. -Isaac Newton
 War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -John Stewart Mill

One quote I recently discovered really resonates with me right now... I like it quite a bit. I would have to say this is my favorite quote, at least for now...

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. -Marilyn Monroe
