    There are so many but here is one that I particularly like from Dr Seuss:

    “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind."

    Simply because we all should be more content with ourselves and be unafraid to show how we truly feel.

    "All knowledge is precious, whether or not it serves the slightest human use." A.E Housman.

    Any knowledge we learn, is truly valuable, whether or not it can be used. Just one of many which I have learnt over the years and admire.

    The reason I haven't explained why I like the quotes I posted above is because I personally don't like to. I don't know why but I feel like explaining things you're passionate about kind of trivializes them, I don't know I just do. I mean, if you understand/feel the meaning/depth of the quote, you do, if not then just leave it.

    That probably completely didn't make any sense but whatevs.
