I was starting my Spring cleaning today because I noticed that things were getting messy in my workspace and where I sleep. The books were piling up and so where the notebooks. I wrote about in A sign of Depression – A Messy Room. I came across something I hadn’t seen a long while, my notebook with my favorite quotes handwritten.
A few of them were of my own design. I had forgot that I once thought that one day someone would use a quote I wrote in their novel. It was a grandiose thought, but I have had many over the years. When reading through them I had a thought, “Why not share some of them?”
They come from my favorite video games, movies, books, my favorite people, and things I have read at some point in my life. Quotes for me often have to resonate with me for them to have some importance.
Some of my Favorite Quotes
Kairi to Sora from Kingdom Hearts 2
“Thinking of you, where you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: starting a journey might not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, and they share the same sky— one sky, one destiny.”
“Never tell her goodbye, instead tell her “till I see you again, my love.” Goodbye means you might not see her again.”
Sammy Farha – Poker Player
“You have to gamble to win.”
Lady Jocelyn – A Knights Tale
“Your name makes no matter to me, so long as I can call you my own.”
Chaucer – A Knights Tale
“I will evicerate you in fiction. Every pimple, every character flaw. I was naked for day. You will be naked for eternity.”
”I’m a writer, I give truth scope.”
Holly Golightly/ Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (My favorite movie)
“You know those days where you get the mean reds.”
“No. The blues are because your getting fat and maybe it’s raining too long, your sad that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what your afraid of.”
Huck Cheever/ Eric Bana in Lucky You
“The money’s just a way of keeping score. Poker is competition in the purest sense. Doesn’t matter who you are or what you are; everybody’s equal at the table.”
Mike McDermott/ Matt Damon in Rounders
“Listen, here’s the thing. If you can’t spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker.”
“I want him to think I’m pondering a call, but all I’m thinking about is Vegas and the fuckin’ Mirage.”
“To say I can live without you, would be the biggest mistake I will. ever make.”
”Letting you go is all I have left. I can’t as you to stay, even though my heart wants you to.”
Bella Swan – Twilight (Book: Stephanie Meyer)
“Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Nobel even. That ought to count for something.”
“There are few things in life that are so unpardonably neglected in our country as poker. The upper class knows little about it. Now and then you find ambassadors who have some general knowledge of the game, but the ignorance of the people is fearful. Why, I have known clergymen, good men, kindhearted, liberal, sincere and all that, who don’t know the meaning of a flush. It’s enough to make one ashamed of the species.”
I realize there a lot of poker quotes. I love the game of poker. It really is pure. I was once very good a poker but at the best of times you can lose. I often write about poker, and I have a short story that I am considering turning into a screenplay.
Anyway I hope you enjoyed these. I may do one or two of these. I do love a good series.
