seldom followed good advice

Hi friends! I’m back with another quote masterpost. As an aspiring author, fellow writers never cease to amaze me with their wisdom, with their humbleness, but most importantly, with their words. These quotes aren’t necessarily motivational, but nevertheless, I had a great time researching the authors and their quotes. Though I did as much research as I saw necessary, everyone makes mistakes, so if you think one of the quotes in this post belong to another person, be sure to let me know! I made this with bullet journals in mind, but do with these quotes what you wish. I hope you enjoy, and all of you have a great day!

If I listened earlier, I wouldn’t be here. But that’s just the trouble with me. I give myself very good advice. But I very seldom follow it. That explains the trouble that I’m always in. Be patient, is very good advice, but the waiting makes me curious. And I’d love the change. Should something strange begin?

Honestly, the top two most relatable characters in all of literature have to be Alice and Dorothy.

Alice, the queen of wild mood swings, massive overreaction, and massive amounts of self deprecation while somehow still being hugely judgemental of literally everyone else, and speaker of the most relatable line of dialogue ever (”I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.”), and Dorothy, the queen of over-eating and perpetual hunger, gayness, and being deeply affected by the most minor things but completely calm and unaffected by actual serious, important, and life-threatening things.
