50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

Don't Tell Me Fairy Tales Don't Exist

You'll never be able to convince me that they don't.

Fairy tales do exist, and you won't be able to convince me otherwise.

People like to say that love only exists in fairy tales, and fairy tales just don't happen. However, I beg to differ. Fairy tales do exist, and one just so happened to take place on May 19, 2018, with the whole world watching.

The royal wedding that took place was that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The now princess made her name as an actress, campaigner and blogger--and is now Prince Harry's wife.

Meghan started out at just age 11 fighting for women's equality and continued to pursue that. Then, she had a stint working as an intern for the US Embassy in Argentina that made her think her path might lead her into politics, but she changed course when her acting career began to take off. Between auditions, she made money by doing calligraphy for wedding invitations, using skills she developed in handwriting classes at school.

In terms of dating and relationships, Meghan hasn't had the easiest time, much like a lot of other women. Meghan was married once before; however, the marriage only lasted a short two years before the couple divorced and parted ways.

Obviously, she didn't let that setback stop her from finding her prince, literally. To those who watched the wedding, it was clear that Prince Harry truly loves Meghan. He cried and was a nervous wreck, which was slightly adorable--not to mention he hand-picked her bouquet of flowers from his mother, Princess Diana's, garden.

While the list of young available princes is short, looking for a real prince isn't the moral of this article. However, what you should take away from this is that it's okay to work on bettering yourself and furthering your career while waiting for your true love.

You also shouldn't be discouraged by setbacks because the most incredible thing may come just after said setback. I'm not saying that you have to marry a prince to find your fairy tale, but the love that is found within them is out there.

So, be patient, work on yourself, and your Prince Charming is sure to find you and show you the love that we read about in fairy tales--because yes, they do exist.
