Bullet Journal Quotes

Since my planner starts July 2016 and ends July 2017 I’ve been using it as a bullet journal for the summer until I start school again next week. I’ve been writing quotes, tips and odd bits of information in the space for each day instead of homework. Now it’s the end of summer I have collected a lot of quotes that I hope you guys might like. They may seem random but they do correspond with what i did or was feeling on the day.

Plato
“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”
“Love is a serious mental disease.”

Socrates
“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”

Buddha
“What we do today is what matters most.”
“To keep the body in good health a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”

William Shakespeare 
“The course of true love did run smooth.”

Oscar Wilde
“The books that the world calls immoral are are the books that show the world it’s shame.”

Stephen King
“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”

William Arthur Ward 
“The price of excellence is discipline. The cost of mediocrity is disappointment.”

Audrey Hepburn
“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older you will discover you have two hands - one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”

Abraham Lincoln
“I will study and get ready and perhaps my chance will come.”

Theodore Roosevelt
“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty.”

Thomas Edison
“I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways that didn’t work.”

“You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world.”

Dr Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal, Series 2, Episode 4: Takiawase)  
“I’ve always found the idea of death comforting. The thought that my life could end at any moment frees me to fully appreciate the beauty and art and horror that this world has to offer.”

Sirius Black (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Movie)
“We’ve all got both light and darkness inside of us. What matters is the part we choose o act on, that’s who we really are.”

“There’s no more from you on the transcript, that’s the last I’ve got. I don’t know what stopped you talking, but I can guess. They’re coming. The angels are coming for you. But listen, your life could depend on this. Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back, don’t look away, and don’t blink. Good luck.”

the master’s plots in dr who are basically him trying to make his fanfics universally canonical…

he named the converted humans from utopia, who he also refers to as his children, ‘the toclafane’ - a monster from gallifreyan fairy tales

he jumped right on the 'genesis of the cybermen’ bandwagon, he had to add his own genesis on top of all the others

missy put the doctor and clara together, two very similar individuals whose destructive relationship would have them become the hybrid - a creature of gallifreyan prophecy and myth

the end of time is literally his attempt at the ultimate self-insert fic

the master is absolutely one of those losers who would name their kid 'khaleesi’ or something like that…

That bit in Blink where Sally hands the Doctor the photographs of the Weeping Angels along with the transcript is so important.  It’s such a small moment, and easy to miss since it’s buried in the big “Sally and the Doctor finally meet” scene, but it’s the physical handing over of the folder which I noticed the most this time around, for two main reasons:

1) Speaking thematically, it’s what allows Sally to finally move forward and live her life with Larry. Larry tells her earlier on that she needs to move past what happened, and look to the future – he tells her this because she still clings on to the photographs.  By handing them down to someone else, she passes on that burden. She quite literally frees her hand of the photographs so that she can hold Larry’s hand with it instead!

2) It’s also seriously neat headcanon material.  So we learn later on that the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel, right? And those images are given to the Doctor?  I’ve seen it cited as a plot-hole before, but you could just as well read it as the opposite – the last piece of the puzzle.  Perhaps the Doctor, travelling to the recent past, leaves the photographs lying around.  Angels are born from the photographs – the same Angels which send the Doctor back in time. The episode is, after all, already an embodiment of the bootstrap paradox. What harm would one more do?

Maybe that’s all the Angels are in the end.  Circular replications of themselves – beings generated through the circulation of their own images, their own reflections, with no beginning and no end.

Do you ever think of how Cassandra!Rose snogged the Doctor in a hospital in 2x01 and what a neat little parallel it would have been to have the Doctor “have to” snog Rose in a hospital in 3x01 for a “genetic transfer” and what a wasted opportunity and damn it Billie Piper why’d you have to go and leave?

I traveled across the world, from the ruins of New York to the fusion mills of China. Right across the radiation pits of Europe. And everywhere I went, I saw people just like you living as slaves. But if Martha Jones became a legend, then that’s wrong because my name isn’t important. There’s someone else. The man who sent me out there, the man who told me to walk the earth. And his name is The Doctor. He has saved your lives so many times and you never even knew he was there. He never stops, he never stays, he never asks to be thanked. But I’ve seen him, I know him. I love him. And I know what he can do.

“I lied to you, ‘cos I liked it. I could pretend, just for a bit, I could imagine they were still alive… underneath that burnt orange sky. I’m not just a Time Lord, I’m the last of the Time Lords. The Face of Boe was wrong. There’s no one else.”
