for the love of meaningful quotes: guest post by erin

Today’s guest post is by someone who is a fresh face to most of you. Erin is our in-house Editor, and while she is settling in as a part of our team, I’ve actually known her and have considered her my friend for some 15 years. As long as I’ve known Erin, she has always had a love for quotes. Not just collecting them but truly implementing the inspiration into her life and passing along the inspiration to others. We’ve invited Erin to write a little bit about this and then … we have a little surprise for you, too!

All you, Erin.

When I was younger, I didn’t collect pop tabs, postcards, or posters of my favorite pop stars. I collected quotations. Yes, quotations. Words on paper, strung together in a beautiful way. Nerdy? Perhaps. Life-changing? For sure. I even had a small, white, plastic box I had gotten free from a Clinque “gift-with-purchase” where I put all my favorite quotes.

Quotations have a way of stating something so succinctly, so artfully, that they can make you think, make you laugh, and make you change the way you act. Needless to say, my little quote collection has expanded from that little white box to quote boards, journals, books, Pinterest boards, quotes written on the walls of my house, and more. If something has a fabulous quotation on it, it’s hard for me to pass up! I even love to memorize quotations so I can think of them in times of need.

One quotation that often rings through my mind is one I memorized as a teenager. It’s actually lyrics from a song:

“You should never judge someone, that’s what I’ve been told. You don’t know just where they’ve been or how far they’ve got to go.” 

Those catchy lyrics would often come to mind if my thoughts started to wander and I started judging someone. They made me think twice and think about where that person might be coming from.

Another quotation I have up in my house helps me remember to use my time wisely. Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings advises,

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

I’m not sure my kids love it, but I often spew off quotes to help teach them lessons. If one of them has gotten into trouble, I recite a wise Chinese proverb:

“If you don’t want anyone to find out, don’t do it.”

That one causes a lot of eye rolling now!

I also love quotes that motivate me to be better. Last year I was wanting to develop a habit in a certain area of my life. I printed off a quote by Richard G. Scott who wisely reveals,

“We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.”

I love his use of words and repetition, but mostly I love what it teaches. I put this quote by my bathroom sink and saw it often throughout the day. When I saw it, it reminded me of my goal. I encourage you to find a quote to help remind yourself of a goal you want to achieve. Put it in sight and get going!

I think it’s safe to say, a perfect quote probably exists for every area of your life and for every need! Here are a few more of my favorite ways to use these golden gems in my life:

  • When I hear a great talk or presentation, I love to go through and pull out little snippets of wisdom and put them around my house or car.
  • Do you like to put notes in your kids’ lunches? I do! Print off a quote or write one down and slip it in their lunch! Try it with your spouse, too.
  • Put one on someone’s pillow for a sweet thought before drifting off to sleep.
  • Print a quote, attach it to a plate of goodies, and take to a neighbor.
  • Print a quote, write a quick note on the back and mail (yes, mail!) it to a friend.
  • Frame it!
  • Are you in charge of an event? Use a quotation for the theme. Once I was in charge of a secret grandma reveal party where young girls revealed who their secret grandma had been for the past several months. Of course, I turned to a quote–this time by Gertrude Stein–and we centered the party around the theme “We are all the same age inside.” Twice I have been asked to make programs for a funeral. I had some space to fill on the back, so I found a quotation about death that hopefully helped soothe some aching hearts.
  • Got a research paper to write? Start the introduction with a quote that relates to your topic. English teachers love this, I promise!

For some people it’s shoes. For others it’s coins. There are still others who can’t get enough books. And while I won’t turn down a fun purse–just ask my husband!–a few well-written words can be all it takes to make me smile and brighten my day. Surround yourself with great words and sayings that make you happy!

It’s me (Becky) again. Don’t you just feel so inspired by what Erin has shared with us? I sure do. In honor of Project Life’s 4th birthday, Erin chose 4 favorite quotes and we paired those with 4 photographs taken by Kara (someone else new to our team you’ll be hearing more about soon)!

bh_inspirationalquotes_prev

We are offering these Project Life quote cards as free downloads for you and your friends! They are available right now on our digital site – DigitalProjectLife.com. The PDFs are all set up and ready for you to download, print, and cut the cards.

Each of the 4 quotes is available in two sizes – 3×4 and 4×6 – and in both horizontal and vertical format. You can slip these cards into your Project Life album, add them to a traditional scrapbook page, on the front of a homemade card, or even on a little gift for a friend. Or you could tape these to your bathroom mirror, place them on your refrigerator, or stick them in your kids’ lunchbox sometime.

However you use these quote cards is up to you. (But don’t sell them because that’s just not honest.) Enjoy – and pass along the inspiration!  ; )

{ oh hey! it’s a giveaway! }

    Hi Erin (and Becky)!

    Just wanted to drop a note to say that I collect quotes too– have done it since junior high. :) And, wanted to let you know that seeing the Quote, Unquote books brought a smile to my face and a cherished memory: I placed them next to the chair where I nursed my firstborn during her earliest days and perused them often while she nursed. Love them so much, as they combine two of my passions: interesting typography and thought-provoking quotations.

    I don’t need to be entered into the contest, as I already own the books… just wanted to say “thanks” for such a terrific post!

    Thank you very much for the free download of cards. They are beautiful. I have been collecting quotes for many years. Each one has been so important to me and to the different times of my life. Here is my favorite quote:

    “I expect to pass through this world but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do any fellow human being let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I will not pass this way again.”

    Ahhh! I love quotes so I’m going to share one too…

    “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.” -Albert Einstein

    This quote is totally applicable to me and my “relationship” with Project Life (yes! I have a relationship with Project Life!). Before Project Life came along, I wanted to use my energy to tell stories, where my true creativity lies. I felt like scrapbooking was sucking my gifts right out of me because I wanted the presentation of the stories to be beautiful, but I wasn’t a naturally gifted “scrapbooker”. Now I get to use my gifts by drawing “freely upon my imagination” to tell beautiful stories and Project Life makes them look beautiful with so much less effort and agony. Project Life is the perfect way for me to record and capture the moments of my life.
