10 Literary Quotes That Can Brighten Your Day

As an English Literature major, I come across new authors and stories all the time. Each one brings new perspectives and ideas to life that I hadn't thought of before. I find myself writing down new quotes every day, in hopes that they can help me now or in the future. Life can be hard sometimes, especially when we're all just trying to find our place and make the most of what we have. We forget to see things in a positive light. So I've compiled a some quotes to help all of you who need a little and guidance and positive words in your lives.


This is one of my favorite quotes. It reminds us that there are so many amazing things in this world that we take for granted every day that we should admire and cherish instead.


This quote speaks volumes about how the world worked, and still works today. People don't believe that things can happen, yet they want easy solutions to their problems. We all have to have some faith that things will turn out alright.


Sometimes life doesn't always go as planned. If we keep expecting certain things to happen, we will continually be disappointed. In some instances, expectation is most certainly a good thing. However, it can affect you in a negative way, as Shakespeare points out.


Every day brings new opportunities to meet new people and make new relationships. However, a lot of us allow judgments and thoughts about people get in the way of actually seeing who they really are. Before we make assumptions, it helps to try and get to know someone and what they've been through.


I feel that this quote can relate to many people. In this age where technology allows more people to show off their creativity and talent, there is also more criticism and harsh words. This makes people feel that what they do or what they made isn't good enough, but that's not the case. If it's good to you, then have the courage to show it to the world.


Happiness is a key aspect of life. Not much else matters when it comes down to it. So find happiness for yourself and cherish memories you create.


This also has to do with having some courage. Have the courage to move to a new city, make new friends, join a new club, or something you haven't done before. It can lead to many more opportunities.


Jane Austen has a really good point here. Basically, actions speak louder than words. So do things that you'll be proud of, and things that will make you happy.


No one is perfect. We all can be crazy big messes. So own it, live it, and accept things for what they are. If you want to change, it's up to you.


I end with a simple quote. These three things are important for everyone. If we all are silly and honest and kind to ourselves and those around us, life will be that much better.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
