I think it’s time to do a quote drop!
When did my obsession with quotes begin? Why do I love them so much? I have no idea. In fact, my friends and family noticed my obsession with quotes/quotations before I did! Why not embrace it?!
Some of the quotes I journal are amusing. Some are funny in context; some are only funny out of context — as in “What if someone overheard that!?” Some are thought-provoking. I may or may not agree with something I quote.
So without further ado, here are some of my favorites from this past month — broken down into three categories (thought-provoking, presidential candidates, and LOL)! What? I told you I was obsessed.
“It’s real easy to believe lies when you don’t test them against the standard of God’s Word.” — my DH (8/2/2015, SBC)
“The one objective the enemy has is to steal, kill, and destroy you. You may have heard somebody say, “If you’re doing really good work for the Lord, Satan’s going to try to stop you,” or “When you’re really a threat to the devil, that’s when he’ll attack the hardest.” I don’t think there is an “if” or a “when” about it. Satan is out to destroy you no matter what.” — Anne Miller in Mad Church Disease
“I don’t really care about the war on women; I care about Planned Parenthood’s war on babies.” — Jesse Watters (https://youtu.be/kn_C5l7sbBM)
“The guilty in the Planned Parenthood story is humanity.” — Greg Gutfeld (http://insider.foxnews.com/2015/07/28/greg-gutfeld-compares-medias-coverage-bill-cosby-and-planned-parenthood-scandal-five)
“It is not my responsibility to grow a church. It’s my responsibility to preach the truth.” — Paul Washer
“You say ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged,’ and I say, ‘Twist not Scripture, lest ye be like Satan’.” — Paul Washer
“What I have advocated is that we pass a law in this country that says all human life at every stage of its development is worthy of protection. In fact I think that law already exists; it’s called the Constitution of the United States… And I think future generations will look back at this history of our country and call us barbarians for murdering millions of babies who we never gave them a chance to live.” — Sen. Marco Rubio (presidential primary debate)
“It wasn’t an abstract thing to see and hear about radical Islam. I walked the streets of lower Manhattan. I felt the flames. I could taste the dust and the ash in the air.” — Gov. George Pataki (1st presidential forum) (when asked how September 11, 2001 changed his life)
“Maybe we need to drink more in Washington.”- Sen. Lindsey Graham (1st presidential forum)
“I’ve heard this question before.” — Gov. Rick Perry (1st presidential forum)
“We’ve got a bunch of math deniers in D.C. in both parties.” — Gov. Bobby Jindal (1st presidential forum)
“Because this is a fight. It’s a fight for the future of this nation. It’s a fight for the character of this nation.” — Carly Fiorina (1st presidential forum)
“I don’t like apple juice; I like apple cider.” — my DH
“What fantasy land do you live in where dragons are real?” — Eric Allen on DW60, 8/20/15
“I think the only language he’s fluent in is sass.” — my DH (referring to Trump)
“Do you know how many different smells there are in this world?!” — Jeff Davis (WDW After Dark, 8/18/2015)
“The thing you need to know about financial products… If they’re advertised next to Snuggies and walk-in bathtubs, then they’re bad.” — Dave Ramsey (as heard on Rick & Bubba, 8/4/15)
*Disclaimer: Just because I enjoy a good sound byte does not in anyway mean I recommend choosing a candidate based merely on a sound byte.
