Quote me

Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

Here goes one of my favorite quotes:

You make lists in your head about what you want in a lover, like brown hair and a sweet voice. A sharp mind and a soft heart, a sense of humor that actually makes you laugh like you mean it. This and that.
And it’s all bullshit. Because people aren’t lists.
And I’ve always wanted to be the person who made someone realize that. I want to come across someone with a list in their head that is nothing like the person I am, and I want to show them what they didn’t even know they were looking for. People who think they know what they want are fooling themselves.
Nobody really knows what they want.
Not until it’s right in front of them.

– Marianna Paige

Why I like it? Because, I never know what do I want. Not in terms of friends, place, food or job or anything for that matter. I just adore things/people for what they are, not for why they are like that or why they aren’t like how they are supposed to be.
