A Wrinkle in Time Blog Tour

I am super excited to be a part of the A Wrinkle in Time blog tour! I recently did my re-read, and now I am just counting down the days until the movie comes out (March 9th -- so close!)

For the Book Nerds Across America stop on the tour, I am going to share with you some of my "life quotes" a la Mrs. Who. For those who need a refresher, Mrs. Who does most of her talking to Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace by answering questions with quotes from famous people.

As for me, I have always felt inspired and motivated by reading quotes from people I admire. Throughout my life, there has been a few quotes that have really spoken to me deeply. These quotes have hit just the right chord in me to inspire me to go beyond myself. Here they are:

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths." 
--Proverbs 3:5-6

"We never how high we are until we are called to rise." 
--Emily Dickinson

"Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down."
--Kobi Yamada

"Be brave."
--Veronica Roth

"...I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
--Henry David Thoreau

"Cherish your vision; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts. If you remain true to them, your world will at last be built."
--James Allen

"I am not afraid of the storm for I am learning to sail my ship." 

--Louisa May Alcott

"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you." 

--Maya Angelou

"I see so many people living like this is a dress rehearsal. This is your life. You have to live it."--My Dad

“Traveling is the great true love of my life. I have always felt it...that to travel is worth any cost or sacrifice. I am loyal and constant in my love for travel... I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby─I just don’t care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it’s mine. Because it looks exactly like me.” 

--Elizabeth Gilbert

“Don't ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
--Howard Thurman

I would love to hear some of your favorite quotes! Please share one or some. And when you're done, check out the rest of the stops on the tour:
