    I was looking through this forum and its thread and something that was missing to me was a section in Sobriety Tips and Inspiration where you can post quotes about to inspire people. So I thought, why not make a thread myself? I know you can just Google 'quotes' and a ton will come up but it's nice to see and hear why a certain quote is someone's favorite.

    OK, so I'll go first. My favorite quote ever is,
    • "Not to spoil the ending for you, but everything is going to be okay."
    To me life is very much like a book, so this quote sends the message that the ending of my book (/life) is going to be an okay one. Not great nor spectacular, just okay and that is fine with me. What I love about this is that it doesn't have to specifically be about my entire life. I apply it when I'm going through rough times as well and it's very helpful plus it lifts my spirits up.

    So what's your favorite quote(s) and why?

    I love the quote from Anne Lamott that appears in my signature.

    “Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up.” --Anne Lamott
