Meaningful Quotes

“There’s only two ways you can live. Live beautifully. Or live for somebody beautifully”- unknown

 This is one of my favorite quotes, I love the message behind it, although in a way I don’t fully agree with it. To me the message behind it is to live your life the way you want to, and to not let anyone change your path in life. But on the other hand it says that while living for yourself is proffered, your life can still be “beautiful” living it for someone else. I just think that is a beautiful message. In another way it’s saying that life is always beautiful no matter how you choose to go about it, for someone else or for yourself. Although it is a well said message, that’s were I don’t fully agree with it. To me you should never live you life for someone else. It is your life, and you do only get one. Even though I don’t agree with this quote fully, it will still remain one of my favorites.

“ Realities an illusion

we’re losing what makes us human

and choosing to keep polluting the youth and ruin the future

people claim they’d take a bullet

then end up the ones who shoot it

I guess the devil was once an angel and Jesus trusted Judas “

-Darren Gwinn


“The clothes you wear and the people you talk to do not determine who you are. Do not wake up in the mornings and dress to impress anyone but yourself. Everything is temporary- and even though most of you don’t like to admit it, so are the people you’re surrounded by everyday in these hallways. Your life is just as important as everyone else’s, but yours is your own priority. Put yourself first sometimes, it’s okay, I promise. Respect people. Be nice to everyone even if you want to throw them off the planet. Travel- meet people, explore, experience. Maybe even learn a new language. Your life won’t just be handed to you in most cases. You want something? Do whatever it takes to achieve your goal. If you fall, get back up and try again. This is your life, and the only thing you’re going to regret when you’re older is not making it the best it can be. ”

Words of Wisdom

So much time has passed since our first days of school. It’s freaky to think that in one year, one very short year, we all will be preparing for the rest of our lives. Whether it’s college, the military, or straight to the workforce, you are all but on your own. Let that sink in for a moment… you will no longer be able to rely on your parents, no longer have the all the freedoms that you once had as a kid…. scary isn’t it? But, we are not the first, and certainly will not be the last. The feeling of loneliness will pass, and we all will make it through this apparent hard time.

Advice to the World

Don’t judge people upon their appearances or their actions. Who are you to determine what is normal and what is just. People that may be strange or abnormal could be a personable and sociable person. And to people who do bad or uncivilized actions, purposeful or not, should not be tied down and shunned for what they have done. Overlook and forgive their follies and comfort them. In the end it will create more peace than war. Now this is for the exception of people who are truly evil. Ones who deliberately hurt, kill, or otherwise be a hinderance to humanity should be avoided, forgiven but avoided. You do not want the influence of evil or darkness affecting you in the end, or otherwise influencing you to follow or mimic their actions and becoming wicked yourself.


Listen to your parents
They’re always right
Even when they’re wrong
Don’t count every calorie
Work them off instead
Leave your house once a day
Only if its to get the mail
Don’t depend on too many
Not everyone will be around
Keep hand sanitizer in your
You don’t know what you’ve
Touch or who touched it
Try and learn another language
It will be handy later
Compare yourself to others
Only to improve yourself
Go to work and work your hardest
You will be rewarded
Sing in the shower even if you stink
Your family likes a good laugh
Be open with people
You have to trust someone
If not you’ll get no help
Don’t get too jealous
Other people mean nothing to you
You are your own person
Stop wearing make up
Stop straightening your hair
It needs to breath
Just as much as you do
Take a bath here and there
Your body has been going all day
Let it relax for 15 freaking minutes
Please learn to love yourself
But honestly listen to your
Mom and dad
You need them
They need you

-Taylor Phillips


When you look in the mirror, what do you see?

You see yourself. So when you ask,”Who am I?” realize the answer is standing looking at you in the mirror staring back at you reflecting an exact appearance of you like a twin.

Just be yourself! Not to the extent where you become an individual but where you become a part of something.

Family and friends get you through life and they love you because you are who you are. Don’t act like others or become something you’re not. Your life is not a movie so there’s no purpose to acting.

Be loud and proud but not too loud people are pushed away to avoid your ambitious ways. Be loud enough so your voice is heard, so your and opinion are heard because your opinion matters.

We live long lives and although friends and family come and go, people are met and pass, remember that they’re always with you and the reason they stuck to you, the reason they liked you, and the why they’ll always remember you like you will them, is because you were you and that’s all they asked for.

A cliche? Maybe, but the truth.
