What is your favorite inspirational quote? One of mine is "Don't lead me, I'm not a follower. Don't follow me, I'm not a leader. Just stand by my side and be my friend."

My favorite quote is: " like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. You're stuck with this undefinable whipped-mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while, there's a peanut butter cup, or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast, the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits, filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts, and if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you've got left is an empty box...filled with useless, brown paper wrappers." I like to make comparisons regarding life with things like sweets, I think sometimes it makes things less bitter.

This one is from Japanese TV Series "1 Litre of Tears", which was made based on real life experience that written in the diary with the same title. "What's wrong with falling down? Because as long as I stand up again it'll be just fine. Looking up at the sky after falling down, the blue sky is also stretching limitlessly and smiling at me today. I'm....still living."
