If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

Express Yourself Meme

Hi Guys, 

So, I haven't participated in EYM for awhile--time keeps getting away from me!! The weeks are going by much too fast, I cannot believe were in the holiday season again. I feel like Christmas just ended. haha. 

Anyway, I wanted to hop on board the Express Yourself Meme this week--hosted by Jackie at Bouquet of Books and Dani at Entertaining Interests. It's an awesome meme that's a lot of fun, if you haven't checked it out yet, make sure to pop over to their sites! 

This week's Meme asks: 

What are a few inspirational quotes you'd like to pass onto others? There are a million great quotes out there but here's a few of my favorites. 

P.S. My son came in and read this and, before you read any further, he insisted that I add this "inspirational" quote. 
                There is but one path. Kill them all. ~Spartacus. 

I was in Walmart earlier today, and I think he has a point. 

Hehe...and now for MY quotes:

It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. ~Albus Dumbledore

To me, this will always be the real Dumbledore

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. ~Moulin Rouge

Best love story ever!! 

The moment you doubt that you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.~ J.M. Barrie/Peter Pan
Love this quote. So simple and true. Peter Pan is my hero.

When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably. ~Walt Disney
You guys all know by now that I LOVE anything Disney, so I had to include a quote from the master of making dreams a reality.

Be the Adventure You Dream. ~Zellie Blake

Zellie was the coolest person I ever knew and she truly embraced her motto. She will always be my inspiration.

How about you guys? Any favorite quotes? Share them here or leave me a link back to your blog!! :) 



  1. Disney did believe in the impossible - and achieved it.

  2. Love that Dumbledore quote, and the one from Disney. Both so inspiring!

    1. I've always wanted to write a character like Dumbledore, but I am not full of wise sayings. haha

  3. that was a beautiful post! loved them all (dismey was the king of dreamers)

    esp loved the last one! sweetness!

  4. I love these. Disney is my favorite. My best quote... "There is no limit to a writers mind." -- my ten-year-old said this during one of my workshops. =)

    1. AWESOME quote. And so true. Your ten year old sounds very wise. :)

  5. These are all great quotes, but Disney's is my favorite! Happy Thanksgiving Tamara!

  6. "Be the Adventure You Dream." This. I love this. It's something I need to live by. Thank you for following my blog--I'm following you back! :)

    1. It's an awesome quote, isn't it? But then...Zell was an awesome girl. :) And thanks back for the follow. haha

  7. I love the show Spartacus, and I heart Andy Whitfield's version of Spartacus better. Such a beautiful soul. He is missed.

    These are some great quotes you shared! Full of inspiration. Thank you! ^_^

    1. Andy Whitfield was absolutely amazing. He embodied everything that made that role great. I hate when people put down Spartacus as being about nothing but sex and violence. I think it's one of the best shows I've ever seen and Andy Whitfield bought so much heart to it. He is definitely missed.

  8. Love that first quote, and of course the Dumbledore one :)

  9. I *love* Peter Pan, so that is a brilliant quote, and the Disney quote is quite fantastic as well. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy some turkey and/or pie for us up here in Canada!

  10. All your quotes are cool! The Spartacus one is pretty forceful!

  11. All the quotes are great. I can see the Spartacus one being completely relevant at WalMart any day of the week. And I'm with you...Richard Harris is THE Dumbledore.

  12. No other actor could play this role as well... SO TRUE.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Tamara.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  13. Thanks everyone...I hope you all had a wonderful day!!

  14. What wonderful quotes! So very inspiring. One of my new favorites is from Best Exotic Marigold Hotel "Things will turn out all right in the end and if it is not all right, then it is not the end, yet."

  15. Peter Pan, *Grin* great quote. I love that book.

    And we could all do with some Spartacus' quotes. 8-D

  16. Love all your quotes, including your son's! This is quite an interesting meme.


I love to hear from everyone! Thanks for the comment. :)
