Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

I think it’s great for people who regret things, etc.

Saw it at the end of that film in cinemas.

Thought it was great grin

What if today is shit?

UnFuckingAcceptable Tue 24-Oct-17 01:27:26

Took the words out of my mouth my baby
Today was awful for me. If that was the first day of the rest of my life I'd feel pretty fucking hopeless. Day before was better!

Cillia Tue 24-Oct-17 01:32:26

grin I have no idea.

LolaTheDarkerdestroyer Tue 24-Oct-17 01:33:41

That’s old. And shit.

I've tried living by that mantra before but I always forget sentiment by lunchtime! cynical

My favourite quote is probably this:

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..."

It’s only a good quote if your life so far has been unsuccessful or unfulfilling.

LonginesPrime Tue 24-Oct-17 01:58:24

But Cavender, if your life has been successful and fulfilling, why would you be looking for inspirational quotes?

No offence, OP - I actually like the phrase and think it’s a great way of drawing a line under past experiences and letting go!

You just saw it at the end of a movie? That quote is like 60 years old.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Tue 24-Oct-17 02:00:08

My favourite is

Time has a funny way of passing.

Also

There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 24-Oct-17 02:05:29

I like that saying op.

Pivoine Tue 24-Oct-17 02:05:52

Um what? Is this the 80s. Maybe even the 70s? Confused.

My mother has a fancy handwritten wooden thing hanging up in her study that says ‘life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain’.

I think she thought the gentleman at the craft fair who sold it to her had invented the saying and is incredibly clever and philosophical for someone sat in the corner of a village hall in the middle of nowhere selling his wares.

I think he’s incredibly clever for selling pierces of useless wood to unsuspecting passers by who love silly platitudes for £30 each.

Longines you can still be inspired even if you are already happy!

(Although personally I’m not sure Dederich is a great source of inspiration.)

Besides which, I was replying to the thread title “best quote ever”.

It might of course be the OP’s favourite quotation which is fine.

My best quote for letting go is "chuck it in the fuck-it bucket and move on".
It has really changed my perspective on a lot of things.

Yesterday is History
Tommorow is a Mystery
Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.

I am Awwlook or Baby spider and there's no one in the world like me.

Elllicam Tue 24-Oct-17 04:10:29

I like the quote too OP.

HidingBehindTheWallpaper Tue 24-Oct-17 04:30:15

I like:

Remember, every corpse on Mount Everest was once a highly motivated individual.

* *Remember, every corpse on Mount Everest was once a highly motivated individual.

CaoNiMwahaha Tue 24-Oct-17 05:46:29

^ that makes me feel utterly hopeless!

fullofhope03 Tue 24-Oct-17 06:19:00

It's an oldie but a goodie OP smile

I like "Men are just children with credit cards"

Remember, every corpse on Mount Everest was once a highly motivated individual
That has to be the most demotivating quote ever!

My fave on here so far, *"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..."

Love many, trust few. Always paddle your own canoe.

And

If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

sayyouwill Tue 24-Oct-17 06:21:13

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

I actually live nearly every aspect of my life like this. Means I'm hardly ever disappointed but often pleasantly surprised

''If in doubt, dont''
