In my last article, I told you all how "Doctor Who" is much more than just my favorite show. I explained how it changed my life in many ways. I also mentioned how there are many inspirational quotes that I love. In honor of the new season premiering Saturday, April 15, around the world, I wanted to share a few of these quotes.

Inspirational or funny, in no particular order, here are some of my favorite moments from the show:

1. "The universe is big, it's vast and complicated, and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles."

From Season 5, Episode 12 - "The Pandorica Opens"

This is one of my all-time favorites. It reminds me that the impossible can happen and that the universe is so much bigger than me.

2. "I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams."

From Season 6, Episode 6 - "The Almost People"

This quote reminds me to look for the good in life and to never stop dreaming.

3. "No, hold on. Sorry, that's the 'The Lion King'."

From Season 2 - "The Christmas Invasion"

This scene is what made me really love this show. Until this point I loved it, but I was sad there was a new Doctor. When Ten said this, I laughed and knew right then that I was hooked and would forever love him and "Doctor Who."

4. "What's the point in two hearts if you can't be a bit forgiving now and then?"

From Season 6, Episode 2 - "Day of the Moon"

I try to live a life of forgiveness, and this reminds me we need to forgive even our worst enemies.

5. "You know that in 900 years in time and space I've never met anyone who wasn't important before."

From Season 6 - "A Christmas Carol"

When I started this show, I was in a dark place with very low self-worth. This show helped me to see that everyone is important.

6. "You want weapons? We're in a library! Books! Best weapons in the world!"

From Season 2, Episode 2 - "Tooth and Claw"

I became an avid reader around the same time as I started this show. I love this quote and how it illustrates that knowledge is the most powerful thing in the universe.

7. "The way I see it every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."

From Season 5, Episode 10 - "Vincent and the Doctor"

This is in my top three favorites. It's an excellent one to remember when life isn't going exactly how you planned.

8. "Bit of a hermit." "A hermit? With friends" "Hermits United. We meet up every 10 years, swap stories about caves. It's good fun... for a hermit."

From Season 3, Episode 11 - "Utopia"

This one just cracks me up. I love it!

9. "Never cruel or cowardly. Never give up, never give in."

From the 50th anniversary special - "The Day of the Doctor"

This one is pretty self-explanatory, but I really love that it is his motto. It's something we should all live by.

10. "We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?"

From Season 5, Episode 13 - "The Big Bang"

This is my all-time favorite. I've tried to adapt it to my own life by living in a way that will mean something in the end.

11. "Some people live more in twenty years than others do in eighty. It's not the time that matters, it's the person."

From Season 3, Episode 6 - "The Lazarus Project"

It's not about the time, it's about what you do with that time. Make every moment count.

12. "He's like fire and ice. He's like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the center of time and he can see the turn of the universe. And... he's wonderful."

From Season 3, Episode 9 - "The Family of Blood"

I picked this one to end my list because it perfectly sums up all that the Doctor is. It is also a good explanation of the show because, as I mentioned in the other article, it is a constant roller coaster. It rips your heart out and shatters it into a million pieces... but it's wonderful, and you wouldn't have it any other way.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.

Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.


Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.


After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
