Quote of the Week

This week, I decided to introduce a new feature on my blog! Each week, I want to share one of my favorite quotes with you guys.

I’ve been collecting notebooks full of quotes since I was in elementary school. I think they helped me make sense of the world when I was younger, and, as an adult, they’ve really gotten me through some tough times. I even made a whole spread of quotes in my bullet journal this year that serve as a reminder to just keep moving forward.

So, with the exception of this introductory week, I’m going to keep these posts short and just share quotes that have helped me, or mean something to me, or just quotes I like.

This week’s quote is from one of my favorite classic novels:

I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.
– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

This quote always helps me remember to stop looking backwards. I’ve changed a lot as a person, undoubtedly for the better, and I sometimes need a reminder. I think this is a perfect quote to start off the new year, because it is a great way to think about why we all have to keep moving forward.

It really is that simple. We are not the same people we were yesterday, or the day before, or last year. We are constantly changing and learning, and we have to accept that so we can really live our lives without the past holding us back.


Let me know what you think of this new series! Did you like this quote? Would you like to see a new quote every week?

And I’d love to hear about your favorite quotes, too! Is there a quote that has stuck with you?

  1. I think this series is great! I love quotes or perhaps just beautiful lines, and it would be amazing to get to know more and what you think of them! I’ve always thought this line of Lewis Carroll’s showed the thoughtfulness of children, of how we’re always changing… I agree with you, we have to keep moving forward instead of endlessly dwelling and clinging onto the past.
