Hi. I’m Sarah. And I’m a multiple offender. I like to read my favorite books over and over. Same with movies. Even music videos.
Why do I watch/listen what I love over and over? Because I love great stories. Sometimes, it’s just comforting to know Gilbert and Anne will end up together. Or that Luke and Leia kiss each other in front of her future husband.
There is something about a set of lyrics or a certain quote and it connects with your noggin (or soul, if you’re deeper than I). I present to you, some of my favorite quotes:
“People laugh at me because I use big words. But if you have big ideas, you have to use big words to express them, haven’t you?” ― (Anne Shirley) L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“What do you despise? By this are you truly known.” ― Frank Herbert, Dune
“I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.” – (Lloyd Dobler) Cameron Crowe, Say Anything
“Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.” ― Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
“I’m not a psychopath, I’m a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research.” ― Sherlock Holmes (“Sherlock” TV series)
“Into the garbage chute, flyboy!” ― (Princess Leia) George Lucas, The Star Wars Trilogy
These aren’t for resale value, so don’t be a chump and try to rip them off for your own work. Plus, there are copyright laws. Expensive and timely laws. And I could fill pages and pages with fantastical quotes!
What are some of your favorite quotes? What movies or books are your multiple offenders?
