Simple. Honest. Heartfelt.

I was never a big quote person until I discovered the wonderful world of Pinterest. When I saw Helene and Taylor's prompt for today I knew I wanted to linkup because I have a full Pinterest board, Sarah Written All over It, of quotes I love. Now, most of them are certainly not profound, nor are they by a famous philosopher... well that is unless John Locke also said, "Don't Stop... Get It Get It."

As much as I love love, serious and lovey-dovey quotes with flowery words and complex metaphors are not my favorite. Even though the classics are said to be beautiful, I have a hard time understanding what some of those old school poets even meant. 

Take for example the quote read in Sex and the City, "Love Letters From Great Men":

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all 

Yup, you lost me, sorry bro. This would not get a repin from me. Had you simply said any one of these below, you totally would have gotten a big ole repin from Sarah Webb. (Oh yeah, and the first one is from your's truly. See, who needs Beethoven?!) 

Simple. Honest. Heartfelt. Can't stop it from spilling out of your mouth when you're around that person. That makes for a good ole love quote in my book! 

I think the best quotes are the quotes that you made. The ones that you thought up. Next time you say something hilarious, or loving, or sweet, or inspiring...  stick it on a piece of paper or type it up in photoshop and pin that bad boy. My favorite quotes are the quotes that I can understand and relate to... because, 2014... not 1614. 

Here are some of the quotes, straight out of my mouth, that I felt the need to share on this blog over the past year and a half! Each one is linked to the post it derived from! 

Ok so that last one isn't a Sarah original, but it is one of my favorites, and from one of my favorite posts so I thought, hey... live dangerously, post it anyway! 

What are some of your favorite quotes?? Do you prefer the classics, or are you like me and prefer the ones that sound like they could have easily come straight from your mouth?

  1. "Because, 2014... not 1614" <-- haha so TRUE. I love all your choices!

  2. These quotes are amaaaaaazing Sarah <3 "I have no time for your negative bullshit" WONWONWON!

  3. Those are awesome!

    I have been told I'm pretty quotable. Maybe I should start listening to myself...

  4. I love the idea of making your own quotes into pinnable pictures like that! I like both classics and the more modern ones! It just depends on my mood.

  5. love these. Pinterest is such a great place to get quotes from

  6. I love the Dear Self one!

  7. Yup.. so good.

  8. i like the quotes you came up with best, but that also i love all of these. that negative one might be my fav.

  9. Hahaha I'll admit...I had to read that first quote like 4 times to understand it. And then I see all your other AWESOME ones and I knew you were on my brainwave! Amen sister. To the point and honest and hilarious. LOVE IT.

  10. Ha! I love the ribbon twirler one. :) I could've used that quote about 10 minutes ago when I was discussing "why i love that football stuff so much."

  11. I love all these quotes! I most definitely need to check out your Pinterest board :)

  12. Both. I don't know why I like what I like, but some just hit me. Like "suffering is not a competition" is just utterly fantastic.

  13. I hear you on the confusing old school quotes. It's not that I don't always understand the quote, it's that I'm so bored by the time that I got to the end of it, that my mind wandered somewhere else. I would have to read the quote again and that just wouldn't be likely to happen.

  14. That second to last one is how I even found your blog <3333
