13 Summer Quotes About Making The Most Of The Last Days Of Summer

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Only one month left to beat the heat.

Summer is the season where everyone truly thrives. You soak up those sunny rays, maintain a nice tan, and bar hop from one sandy beach to another. Summer is the season of internal brightness, all around happiness, and love. So, when it starts to come to an end, we begin to get that end of summer blues.

There is still a little over a month left before the jackets and booties come out to play, so don’t start panicking just yet.

Ignore those back to school commercials and those pesky reminders from your boss; summer time is still in full swing and it is up to you to make the most of it before it fades for another 365 days.

Maybe you’re losing inspiration on what to do for the rest of this summer or maybe you just need a push to get back outside and shut off Netflix. Either way, here are some of the best summer quotes that will remind you summer is still here and she wants you to complete all your goals, travel to those far off cities, and take one last beach trip with your friends.

The closing of every summer opens a chapter to the next season, but before you finish writing that chapter you should be sure to leave no page unfilled. There are 24 hours in a day and during summer, a majority of those hours are filled with sunshine. Make the most of these last few weeks of the end of summer and tan your stressors away.

1. Ain’t no mountain high enough, right?

“When the sun in shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.” – Wilma Rudolph

arianagrandesonglyricsbadass - 18 Ariana Grande Song Lyrics &amp; Unforgettable Music Videos That Make You Feel Like A Badass

You see it. You like it. You want it? You got it.

Ariana Grande is a symbol of female empowerment that is inspiring women across the globe to embrace their true personalities and flaunt their flaws. Her music has skyrocketed to the top of the charts like clockwork. She is a style inspiration comprised of equal parts adorable and sexy. Basically, Ari is our idol.

Even though she is an international pop star, she has had her fair share of bad luck. Relationships have always been a tricky subject for Ariana. In 2016, Ariana Grande started dating the famous rapper, Mac Miller. The two put a lot of their relationship in the public eye, recording songs together and being photographed by the paparazzi.

Miller supported Grande through the 2017 terrorist attack at her Manchester concert, which took the lives of 23 individuals. She was very public about the toll the attack too on her mental health and well being. It changed her as an artist and as a person.

In May of 2018, the couple broke up. About a month later, Ariana Grande had a new boyfriend, actor and comedian Pete Davidson. The romance was a tsunami, to say the least. The relationship moved very fast. The couple was engaged a few weeks after announcing their relationship. They were recorded making out in public and were rarely photographed apart.

In September of 2018, Ari’s ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, passed away due to an overdose. Again, she was sent into a dark hole of emotion and grief. About four months into her engagement with Davidson, they split up. Thus, “Thank U, Next” was born!

What makes Grande such an inspiration to so many young women is her determination and optimistic outlook on life. She is always cheering for herself and her fans. She wants everyone to know that they are loved, no matter what they look like, how they dress, or who they’re attracted to. She preaches love and acceptance. She is the ultimate badass!

i love singing to y’all so much. seeing your faces makes me so fuckin happy. your reactions to everything are so sweet and funny, i look forward to it so much in between shows. thanks for your energy n for being in my life and allowing this to be my life bye.

15 Love Quotes That Prove You’re Committed — Even When You’re Not Ready To Get Married Yet

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

While you may be hand in hand with someone, that doesn’t mean a ceremony is next.

Summer brings a lot of things with it when it comes, one of which is the prime time for weddings. Right now we’re in the heart of wedding season and I’m sure at least a few of you have been to one or two by now.

If you’re in a relationship and somehow managed to drag he or she along, you may have been asked this question: “So, when are you getting married?”

Maybe you don’t get asked this question that often, or maybe you’ve heard it so many times you’ve lost count. But, either way you know one thing for sure — you don’t want to get married, or at the very least, your relationship isn’t ready for marriage yet. Of course, telling people that always throws them for a loop. The reactions vary, ranging anywhere from depressed understanding to it’s as if you’ve committed a deadly sin.

Ultimately it’s your decision on whether or not you want to get married, so really you can just ignore everyone else’s opinions. And in today’s society, marriage is becoming less and less common. People have start to be more content with simply being with someone rather than having to go as far as tying the knot.

Plus, weddings are so expensive. If you’re already happy, what’s the point in spending thousands of dollars for one day? Just for the tax benefits? I say that you should do what you think is best, and if that’s simply living together and being together, then do that. There’s no law that says you need a ring to be happy with the person you love.

Of course, having to explain all of this to someone every time they ask can be a real pain. So, instead of spending 20 minutes in a pointless debate, the next time someone asks when you’re going to get married, throw some of these love quotes about commitment at them instead to prove your relationship doesn’t require a certificate.

1. It’s life no matter what.

“Where there is love there is life.” –Mahatma Gandhi

2. Love binds the soul, not a wedding.

“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strength each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow,

35 Best Quotes To Celebrate Harry Potter And J.K. Rowling’s Birthdays

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Happy birthday Harry Potter & J.K. Rowling!

Harry Potter is probably one of the most influential books in the 21st century. It not only lead to movies that created stars like Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, but also created many merchandises and even a section of a theme park.

Created and written by author J.K. Rowling, the book series based on the fictional character Harry Potter is an adventure about magic, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the connection and loyalty of friendship along the way.

The Harry Potter franchise is so popular, they have sold more than 500 million books worldwide, in 80 languages, but one of the most well-known facts about the series is that Harry Potter’s birthday just so happens to fall on July 31st — the same day as real-life author J.K. Rowling’s birthday, who is turning 54 this year!

J.K. Rowling, who has an estimated net worth of just under $1 billion as of May 2019, hasn’t always had it easy. Sadly, her mother, Anne, died from multiple sclerosis in 1990 (before Harry Potter was published) after a long 10-year battle with the disease. According to an article written by Business Insider, “The loss of her own mother would eventually lead Rowling to make Harry Potter suffer the death of his parents” in the series. An inspiration, J.K. Rowling was able to transform the pain from her life into one of the biggest positives.

Rowling never forgot where she came from and has donated millions of dollars to charities. She even established her own children’s foundation, Lumos, in 2005. According to the website “Lumos’ mission is to end the use of orphanages and institutions for vulnerable children around the world by 2050.”

In honor of the J.K. Rowling’s birthday and Harry Potter’s birthday on July 31st, let’s take a look at some of the most memorable J.K. Rowling quotes and Harry Potter memes:

1. Life is a tale

“As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.”J.K. Rowling

2. Let kids dream

“I don’t think there’s any harm at all in allowing a kid to fantasize. In fact, I think to stop people from fantasizing is a very destructive thing indeed.”J.K. Rowling

3. Disciple is important

“You’ve got to work. It’s about structure. It’s about discipline. It’s all these

15 Powerful Rebel Wilson Quotes On Body & Her Fight Against Fat Shaming

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Every size is beautiful – never let anyone tell you differently.

Rebel Wilson, a beautiful, headstrong, go-getter and confident woman who gives a voice to all the normal body types in Hollywood. Wilson is insanely confident in her body and she has never tried to hide who she is.

She is someone who doesn’t conform to what society deems “appropriate.”

In 2015, Rebel Wilson launched an edgy new clothing line in partnership with Torrid, a plus-size, high-end clothing brand. Bringing style and fashion to the next level, Rebel expressed the frustration of all women who struggle to find clothing that fits their bodies. In an interview with People magazine, Wilson said, “I’m currently like a size 18, sometimes a 16 depending on how good I’ve been, so I’m kind of just a bit too big for most regular clothing.”

Even though she appears to be so confident in her body in public, she still struggles with her own self-esteem. She told Cosmopolitan that “Even though, yes, now I am in movies or whatever, I am still that [dorky] girl. People think you’re really confident because you’re an actress or whatever, but I’m like the worst.”

When she was re-casted for Pitch Perfect 2, she hired a personal trainer. She told Elle UK that “I’m not doing it to look great or whatever but to have the energy to do all that [producing and acting] work. People wouldn’t think it looking at me, but I can exercise!” Wilson has to stay physically fit in this type of fast pace, long-hour job. She also told Elle UK that “I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.”

Wilson is the perfect example of a healthy woman, even though her body type doesn’t necessarily reflect our current societal “norms”. She defies the stigma that bigger sized women are unhealthy. She even said in an interview with Marie Claire that she considers her size as “being an advantage, whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”

See ladies? It doesn’t matter how much you weigh. It’s just a number. If you have the personality and drive to do something, go out and do it. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It all starts with learning to love yourself.

So, here are 15 of our favorite Rebel Wilson …

25 Quotes From Celebrities About Falling In Love & Staying That Way

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Head over heels in love isn’t just for the rom-coms.

Loving someone is a feeling like no other, but finding the right person to love can be hard sometimes. We’re all on the quest for love and while many of us find it, a lot of us find it with multiple people throughout our lives.

Love and relationships can take a lot of trial and error until you finally find your true, forever kind of love.


You’ll know when you find real love because it will feel different than any other relationship you’ve been in. Loving the right person will feel exactly how everyone describes a happy relationship to be.

Celebrities are just like us in the sense that they also deal with relationships and heartbreak, except it’s even harder for them. They’re trying to find love while being analyzed under the microscope that is fame. Many of us are invested in the love lives of our favorite celebrities. Often the first question out of an interviewer’s mouth is, “who are you dating?” It’s something we’re all curious about.

We want to know how celebrities make it work! There are a lot of celebrity couples and not a lot of them last. That’s why it’s so exciting and rare when we see true love between Hollywood power couples. We all have our own opinions on love and some celebrities like to open up and share their views about it with their fans and the public.

From long-time celebrity lovers to young stars just learning about what the dating world has to offer, here are some love quotes from celebrities about falling in love, if love really lasts forever, and what it’s like to wait for what seems like forever for love to find you.

1. When Kim and Kanye started dating.

“I think you have different soul-mates throughout your life, that your soul needs different things at different times. I do believe in love. I will always believe in love, but my idea has changed from what I’ve always thought.” Kim Kardashian West

2. Lady Gaga feels like you should never let a relationship take over your life and dreams.

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.” —…

25 Heartfelt Quotes To Send To Someone When You’re Ready To Forgive Them

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

You’ve built the bridge and gotten over it. Time to let them know.

Our relationships with others are the most important connections to keep stable and healthy. Prolonged isolation is not good for anyone. A Harvard study has shown that mutually beneficial relationships between friends and family can extend your life and reduce stress-caused health problems.

However, having a perfect relationship with everyone we know or meet is not realistic. There are inevitably going to be tiffs here and there that leave things on the rocky side.

When someone wrongs you, the best thing to do is communicate your thoughts and feelings clearly and effectively. Tell the person, “This is what you did that upset me and this is why I think it was wrong.”

Opening the conversation early in the conflict allows for the most sincere emotions to be shared. Nipping these kinds of problems right in the bud is always a better alternative to holding a grudge.

But sometimes, the stars don’t allow for such graceful peacemaking.

Sometimes circumstance can get in the way of what is practical. In these cases, it can take quite some time to truly rebuild a broken relationship. According to Bustle, the best way to heal a hurt relationship is through a six-step process. First, you need to make sure you are ready to move on from the issue. This way, the fight can be put to rest and not resurface in the event that you become frustrated again.

Next, you’ll want to arrange a time and place to resolve in person. The digital world may seem like an easier way to say everything the way you want to. But nothing will fully be understood in its original intention unless you say it to their face. You have to decide how you want the resolution to go. If you want to talk it all out, it’s your responsibility. You can’t expect someone to read your mind.

On the flip side, if you decide that you want to move on from the relationship with no further connection, that is your right. There is no law that you have to stay connected to someone.

After clearly thinking about the fight, you should apologize, if necessary. But this should be done only, and they mean only if you truly mean it. Insincere apologies can bring on a mountain of later fights that dig deeper into the …

50 Friendship Quotes To Share With Your Best Friend, Human Diary And Other Half

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

True friendship is when you walk into their house and your WiFi connects automatically.

Defining the importance of friendship is difficult at times, but there’s no denying that the bond of two people who consider themselves best friends is powerful. And there’s no better way to appreciate this bond, than to let your best friend know how much you love them, using some of the best friendship quotes of all time.

Friendships teach us many things in life — to see loss, how to find peace with the people closes to us. Having someone as a best friend is a beautiful experience to cherish.

Psychologically, friends are important because they tend to see you in a way you don’t see yourself. So, they can always see through you. This means they can give you reminders of your strengths and dreams. They can tell you when you’re walking down the wrong path and call you out when you’re being selfish.

Remembering your tribe during the tough times of your life helps helps you cope with loneliness. It’s good to have someone that puts your strengths and flaws in a proper perspective.

And then, of course, having a best friend is really, really fun. And enjoying your life surrounded by the friends you’ve made into family is what life is really all about.

Friends are a good reminder to chill out and let loose even though life gets tough because nothing ever lasts anyway.

So read on through these best quotes about friendship to reminisce on the best people in your life. Share them with your friends — your sister from another mister, your childhood friend you haven’t seen for a while. Look to these quotes for comfort and remember to cherish the days ahead with your best friends by your side.

1. Women empower other women.

“The best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend each other, and think the other deserves the world.”

2. For the besties with anger issues.

“You and I are more than friends. We’re like a really small gang.”

3. The first lesson I was taught in college was to find your tribe and stick with them.

“Find your tribe. Love them hard.”

4. A real friend is forgiving and compassionate.

“That’s when I realized what a true friend was. Someone who would always love you-the imperfect you,

21 Of Toni Morrison’s Most Powerful Quotes About Life, Love, Freedom & Responsibility To One Another

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

She was, indeed, beloved.

No one can prepare you for the death of a hero, and that’s what Toni Morrison was — a hero of the greatest order.

Today, the world lost the woman born as Chloe Ardelia Wofford on February 18, 1931, in Lorain, Ohio to Ella Ramah (Willis) and George Wofford, who passed away at the age of 88.

The American novelist, essayist, editor, teacher and professor emeritus at Princeton University, became a Catholic at the age of 12, taking “the baptismal name Anthony (after Saint Anthony), which led to her nickname, Toni.”

After earning a B.A. in English at Howard University in 1953 and a Master of Arts from Cornell University in 1955, she became a professor, marrying Jamaican architect Howard Morrison in 1958. The couple had two sons, Harold and Slade, and divorced in 1964.

Morrison went on to create a legacy, publishing some of the most highly acclaimed novels of all time, including Beloved, Sula, The Bluest Eye, Tar Baby, Song of Solomon and Jazz.

Her numerous awards include the Pulitzer Prize and the American Book Award for Beloved, later adapted into a film of the same name with Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover. And in 1993, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

“If there is a unifying thread running through Ms. Morrison’s writing, it is perhaps nowhere more vivid than in ‘Song of Solomon.’ At novel’s end, after his odyssey through his ancestral past, Milkman has attained the knowledge that lets him situate himself within his family, the larger community and black America.

And with that, on the book’s final page, he leaps into the air, taking symbolic flight over a world in which he has found his place at last.”

To honor her memory, here are 21 of the best, most inspirational quotes from author and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison on life, love, freedom and strength.

1. “Sweet, crazy conversations full of half sentences, daydreams and misunderstandings more thrilling than understanding could ever be.”

Beloved

2. “I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.”

50 Quotes That Profoundly Describe How Much Breakups Suck

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

These quotes just get it.

Breaking up with someone you love is never easy.

Letting go of the one you love — especially after weeks, months or even years of accumulating treasured memories — can feel like tearing yourself in two.

But the positive side of breakups is that learning how to move on also gives you an opportunity to learn about yourself.

30 Quotes To Help You Deal When You’re At Your Wit’s End

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Breakups are never easy.

There are times in everyone’s life when life gets tough and brutal, and there’s a point where you are just over it. Your breaking point has been reached. There are steps you can take to make you feel better eventually. There are no quick fixes — feeling it out is the only way.

You need to accept that there’s no going back. No wishes for hope, no stressing about “what could have been” the reality is that it is over.

Deep down we all are like that child who cries to his mom because she got hurt playing on the swing, we all need to let out our emotions. Having times in your day where you can cry, punch a pillow, or just scream will do wonders to your attitude later on. When we don’t let out or emotions we bottle it in and eventually that will pop out no matter what. Whether it is you cutting someone off or you cursing off a loved one.

It’s important to not fall into a victim mentality. When you’re in pain you want the other person who did this to suffer. You want them to pay but that’s just not the reality, the only thing you can control is how you act about it.

Focus on where you are at right now, not where you were 20 days ago. Focusing on the past too much will lead you to now enjoying the present. If you’re out with your friends then enjoy a night with your friends, don’t focus on what happened a while back.

Forgiving the person who wronged you is the last step. It isn’t weakness but the path towards creating a better future for you.

Moving on is much easier said than done. It can take days, months — years even. It will ultimately happen though if you follow those steps, and in the meantime here is some of the best quotes for when you’re over it so you can let go of all of the frustration you must have right now.

1. There’s always a rainbow after the rain.

“When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.”Paulo Coelho

2. Make light out of darkness.

“Heartbroken? Channel your sorrow to become worthy of love. The world will be yours. “― Tapan Ghosh

3. Figure out who you are.

Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ’em in quotations

Say what you need to say …
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open …

These lyrics offer the epitome of sage advice for couples.

You may find it difficult to say what’s on your mind and in your heart. At times, you may even hold onto everything until it crushes you.

Simply say what you mean and mean what you say.

But say what you mean with tact, because words, once uttered, can’t be unheard.

She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no

20 Confident Quotes About Loving Your Weird & Being Yourself, Unapologetically

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

It’s time to kick normal to the curb.

There’s one descriptor in life that I’m not a big fan of: when people use the word ‘normal.’ It’s not that I’m against it or something, I just think it’s a dumb word. While there are some things you could call normal, like breathing or eating (to a point), the fact is no one is normal.

What’s even the basis for ‘normal?’ Who decided that having x trait and y hobby made you the ideal model for what everyone else should be? And why should everybody be like that? I really think that the whole concept of being ‘normal’ is a bunch of garbage.

No one is normal. We’re all a little weird and we’re all a little off-kilter.

We’ve all got quirks about us and things we do that make people tilt their head at us. Maybe your favorite sandwich is peanut butter and bananas. Or the way you relax is by hang gliding. Maybe you’re favorite animal is a platypus. Okay, who can blame you on that last one? Those things are pretty cool.

No matter what it is, there’s at least one thing about every single one of you that makes you different from the rest. And you know what? THAT’S OKAY! Own that thing that makes others call you weird! Be proud of it, because that’s who you are! There are whole cities that promote weirdness (ever hear the phrase “Keep Portland Weird?”)!

Don’t ever let someone tell you to be normal. And if they do say it, ask them this- what’s so great about being normal? Do you enjoy being uniform and boring like the rest? While normal doesn’t really exist, the illusion of normal does. People have weird within them, but they’re just too afraid to show it off. It’s something that’s instilled in us as we grow up. Act like the rest, meet the status quo.

BOOOORRRRIIINNGGGGG! Seriously, who wants to do that? You’ll always be happier being true to yourself rather than being what someone wants you to be. So let that freak flag fly, and, if you’re one of those people still on the fence, or maybe you need a confidence boost, here are some weird quotes from some other weird people who agree with me.

1. I’m not the only one that thinks no one is normal.

“I think everybody’s weird. We

But there are some great things in life that you will find, too. You will find a career that makes you happy and you will feel like you are accomplishing something fantastic in life. You may find the one who is your soulmate, get married, have a baby, find a dream house, adopt a pet, or go on a once in a lifetime vacation.
