Again, as with many of my previous posts, I'm going to start out by saying I don't necessarily have a favorite...
Today's theme is favorite quote. I have many favorite quotes; many of them tacked onto my bedroom wall in between my light switch and  a photo of Vivien Leigh and a Rorschach type canvas of Audrey Hepburn.  
There's one quote that I've really liked a lot for a while though. Well, it's not really a  quote- it's a couple of lines from a poem by Wordsworth. The poem: Odes on Intimations of Immortality. 
Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass,
Of glory in the flower, we will grieve not. 
Rather find strength in what remains behind.
If you're a fan of classic films, or of Natalie Wood, I'm sure you recognize these lines. They are heavily featured in the 1961 film Splendor in the Grass (which is where the movie got its title) and are spoken by Natalie Wood at the end of the movie. (And by the way, if you haven't seen Splendor in the Grass, please do. It's a great film and Natalie Wood is so amazing in it) 
Anyhow, back to the post topic. I've been posting this quote everywhere, from my facebook page to scribbling it down in a margin of paper. I posted it when me and an ex broke up. I like it a lot because I like the idea of forgetting the past and moving forward. It's over, it's done, and it's not coming back, so deal with it and move on.
