Quotes from the Commonplace

A commonplace journal is a book where one writes quotes, sayings, or words that catch their fancy. Today I’ll be sharing a couple of my favorite book quotes that are in my commonplace journal.

“It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.” -Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

“Living by answers is a form of death. It’s only the questions that keep you living.” -Crispin the Cross of Lead

“Be suspicious of history that is written by the conquerors.” -Dead End in Norvelt

“A loss is inevitable, like snow in winter. True champions learn to dance through the storm.” –The Crossover

“It’ll be done when America at last defines itself by what she sees in her collective mirrors and not by what she sees in her imagined world of snow-white angels floating among the clouds of our lofty ideals. Until then, we’ll all be in the streets looking for where we belong.” -Riot

Stay fly,

~Akilah
