Would you believe, I am on the last two pages of my 2018  BPI planner which Nissa gave me a year ago. Every year since she started working at Bank of PI, she always gives me pocket notebooks and planners with some photos of  paintings of various Filipino artists. These paintings belong to the enormous BPI collection. I’ve blogged about this before. This year, they featured Juan Luna.

This comes so handy when I am writing quotes and title of books I have found online that I want to read.  Back in the early months of the 2018 Reading Challenge of  Goodreads, I’ve written some wonderful and inspiring quotes from various authors. I am quite lazy nowadays. I still have to transfer them to my thick journal.

Here are some of them.

“Most of the time, everyone deserves more than once chance. We all do things we regret now  and then. You just have to carry them with you”. – Celeste Ng (Little Fires Everywhere)

“What made someone a mother, was it biology alone or was it love”. – Celeste Ng (Little Fires Everywhere)

“The lure of the distance and difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are”. – John Burroughs

“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however”. – Richard Bach (Illusions)

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start and change the ending”. – C.S. Lewis

“All life revolves around a single moment in time. Everything that comes before leads up to that moment. Everything that comes afterward springs from that moment”. – Nina  de Gramont (The Last September)

“There are some things that happen for which we can formulate no whys, for which whys simply do not exist, and perhaps, are not necessary”. – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (The Purple Hibiscus)

“Life sometimes is much easier when you don’t have many choices”. – Debbie Johnson (Summer At the Comfort Food Cafe)

“Books  are the mile markers of my life. Some people have family photos or home movies to record their past. I’ve got books. Characters. For as long as I can remember, books have been my safe place”. – Kristin Hannah (The Great Alone)

“There are times when life is a cursor on a blank page, blinking in a rhythm or bit like an electronic heartbeat, tapping out a question in three little words.




Time and space and life wait for an answer. A blank page is an ocean of possibilities”. – Liza Wingate (Firefly Island)

There are so many more actually but these are some of my favorite quotes and authors.
