Every once in a while you read a quote that just seems to sum up everything perfectly. So while most of you do not go around reading quotes in your spare time like I do, there is so much beauty in the spoken word, it is simply amazing. Now I am sure if I could get Morgan Freeman or the late James Earl Jones to read some of these out loud it would be nothing short of epic.
Thus begins a new section at Speak Easy, The Monthly Quotes. It might be about the month in a quote, or just something that sounds really cool. They would be great to spout off at parties or just whenever you feel like it.
As I sat here trying to add a little or explain the quote, I had a “what the fuck am I doing?” moment. These are fantastic examples of expression in the simplest and purest form. They do not need to be explained or analyzed, because if you do not understand then you are never meant too. So just enjoy.
“You boys can keep your virgins
give me hot old women in high heels
with asses that forgot to get old.”
“Sex is kicking death in the ass while singing.”
“there is always one woman to save you from another and as that woman saves you she makes ready to destroy”
“what matters most is how well you walk through the fire”
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
“You don’t know what you live for, until you know what you would die for”
“The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence”
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
“Life is short, Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret ANYTHING
That makes you smile.”
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.”
“Nothing Great ever came THAT easy.”
The pressure is good for you
Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.
Nothing happens until you make it happen
The harder you work the luckier you get

I did not write any of these, but they are all outstanding and should provide some great motivation or whatever…
