10 Quotes From My Notebook

I like to think of myself as a child of the digital age. I was born alongside the home computer and came of age with the internet. Damnit, I could type before I could write!

There’s no arguing though, I am old fashioned about some stuff, most of them involving reading and writing. I have a Kindle, and I love it, mostly because it means I can get library books from the couch in my PJs. Yet, if I really love a book, I will be picking up a physical copy, no question. I also use the Kindle’s function to highlight text and store it digitally, in fact, I use it all the time. But yet again, if I really like a quote or know I’ll want access to regularly, it becomes important to handwrite it. I don’t know what kind of brain function is responsible for this, but they just feel more important and real if I handwrite them.

Hence my notebook. What started out as an impulse stationary purchase (these happen more often then I’d like to admit) quickly became my go-to landing pad for quotes. And not just quotes from books either. Any media is fair game, plus quotes from history, and things I hear people say (these get credited as ‘anonymous’).

For this week’s list, I’ve picked some of my favorites and used Adobe Spark to make those pretty quote pictures that you see on Instagram.

1. The Year of Pleasures

2. All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

3. The Obelisk Gate

4. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

5. Coraline

6. Star Trek: TNG

7. Norse Mythology

8. Pachinko

9. Becoming

10. A Man Called Ove

That’s it! The best of my quote-game. As usual, I always like hearing for you, so if you’ve got favorite quotes, leave them in the comments! As a bribe, I’ll even make you super cool images just like mine!

11 Self Care Quotes

Happy Valentines Day! I’m hoping you all have a great day spending time with the people that you love. As you’ve probably noticed by now, I love using Valentines Day as a great opportunity to celebrate Self Love as well as romantic, familial, and platonic love. So here are some of my favorite quotes about Self Love. I take some of the ones that talk about practicing Self Love so you can support others with a grain of salt. I think that you should practice Self Care and love yourself for you- and if others benefit, that’s great. But they still have good stuff to say, so I included them!

8 Favorite Quotes About Autism

If you interact at all with social media, you’ll know that quotes are everywhere. They’re usually posted on top of images on mountains or sunsets, and are more often than not credited to ‘anonymous’. Not to say there aren’t some good quotes out there, especially ones that describe experiences, instead of forcing vague positivity on the reader. It can be hard to sort through Autism quotes because a large percentage of them are made about Autistic children by Neurotypical adults. These often border on inspiration porn- and they infuriate me.

So, in order to combat these, I’d like to share some quotes about Autism that I enjoy.
