i am obsessed with quotes. i have a word document of 50+ pages of just quotes. i also used to keep a scrapbook of quotes. i have this tenacious need to share whatever i'm inspired by. here is like .005% of what i've saved. so if you love beautiful words & phrases like me, please be my guest and enjoy. maybe even grab a cup of coffee :)

It is a magical thing for a handful of words, artfully arranged, to stop time. To conjure a place, a person, a situation, in all its specificity and dimensions. To affect us and alter us, as profoundly as real people and things do.
— Jhumpa Lahiri

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.
— Jane Austen

There are moments in our lives when we are crying out for grace, not recognizing that we are getting it. We are not getting the grace of relief or the grace of release, because that is not the grace that we really need. No, what we are getting is something we desperately need, the uncomfortable grace of personal growth and change. With the love of a Father, your Lord is prying open your hands so that you will let go of things that have come to rule your heart but will never satisfy you.
— Paul David Tripp

Having faith often means doing what others see as crazy. Something is wrong when our lives make sense to unbelievers.
— Francis Chan, Crazy Love (pg. 114)

Oh, me? I’m not 80% water. I’m 80% coffee, and a little bit of sass.
— Zooey Deschanel
