Recent Quotes I Love + Some Adorable Photography

Greetings fellow bookworms!

I was planning on posting a book review today, but I ran out of time and wasn’t able to finish it. So instead of that, I’m going to be doing something a bit new today. Earlier I snapped some pictures of my two adorable guinea pigs, Shadow and Nugget, as well as a few pictures of my little brother, Dovid. I’ll be sharing those with you today, along with some recent quotes that I’ve fallen in love with! Let’s get started!

(Disclaimer . . . I’m still pretty new to photography so bear with me on a few of these photos!)

Insist on yourself; never imitate.

(Ralph Waldo Emerson—Self-Reliance)

Jim said bees wouldn’t sting idiots; but I didn’t believe that, because I had tried them lots of times myself, and they wouldn’t sting me.

(Mark Twain—The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn)

“. . . When you run out of hope, everything is backward. Your heart wants the opposite of what it needs.”

(Andrew Peterson—The Warden and the Wolf King)
This is the view Shadow has of Nugget from his cage. 😉

The moral influence of nature upon every individual is that amount of truth which it illustrates to him.

(Nature—Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Soliloquy is the smoke exhaled by the inmost fires of the soul.

(Victor Hugo—The Man Who Laughs)

No one realizes the miracle of a normal day.

(Sadie Robertson—Life Just Got Real)

The best way to understand the present events in our lives is to look back on them from the vantage point of the future.

(Matthew West—Today Is Day One)

But that’s always the way; it don’t make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person’s conscience ain’t got no sense, and just goes for him anyway.

(Mark Twain—The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn)

All men have one common original: they participate in one common nature, and consequently have one common right.

(Alexander Hamilton—A Full Vindication of the Measures of the Congress . . .)
I like this picture except for the fact that my trashcan photobombed the background. *glares*

“Why,” repeated the scout, looking about him proudly, “because it is better for a man to die at peace with himself than to live haunted by an evil conscience! [. . .]”

(James Fenimore Cooper—The Last of the Mohicans)

they can take my heart, they can take my breath/when they pry it from my cold, dead chest/

(Skillet—The Resistance)
What is this big, black eye I see?

“Good Luck is rather particular who she rides with, and mostly prefers those who have got common sense and a good heart; at least that is my experience.”

(Anna Sewell—Black Beauty)
*cringes* This one did not turn out at all, but you can see Shadow exploring my bedroom here. 😉

“But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. [. . .]”

(Mark 13:7)

And I think that’s a good quote to end with! Thanks so much for reading, everyone! I hope these quotes were inspiring—or maybe just made you laugh. 😉 Now get out there and do great things! ❤

  2. Your guinea pigs are so so cute!!! How old are Shadow and Nugget? My sister’s guinea pig, Rosie, is about 3 1/2 years old I think and Rosie is kind of fat, but adorable hahahahaha!! Are they boy or girl guinea pigs? Rosie is a girl! 😀

    1. Aw-w-w-w-w, thank you Kaleyn! They’re so sweet. I’m not exactly sure how old they are: when we got them at the pet store we asked about their ages, but they didn’t give us an exact date. 😦 But I know that they’re over eight months and I’m almost positive that they’re under eighteen months. (Either that or they’re just very small for their age, lol) Aw, Rosie sounds so adorable! Ha, ha, fat guinea pigs are so cute! 😂😂😂 Both Shadow and Nugget are boy guinea pigs! Which is part of the reason they started fighting and why I had to split them up. 😥

      Aw, thank you! 🥰
