How Sad are these Book Stats?

How sad is this?  The Twilight Saga has been read millions of times more than Gone With the Wind (one of my fave books) and the Diary of Anne Frank.  And this is really only keeping track of how many copies have been sold, not the amount of times its been borrowed from the library or friends, or digitally(?).

PAD: Quote Me

Daily Prompt: Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?

Indeedy.

“Take me for what I am….who I was meant to be!”   ~RENT the show/movie/musical
Kinda self-explanatory dont’cha think.

“Remember that it makes absolutely no difference what other people think of you! We all need to understand that there is no such thing as perfection. Strive for excellence, that is achievable, and detach from what others think and say about you. If they don’t approve of what you do or who you are, let it be their problem. Be true to yourself!”
~John F Barnes, PT
Just what it says- Be True to Me, I shouldn’t have to change who I am so other people will think “better” of me.  I’ll be me and you be you.  Everyone’s much happier that way.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”
― Maya Angelou
Someday I am going to get this as a tattoo.  Maybe the shortened version though.  Its such a great way to try to live your life, these are the values and personality characteristics that everyone should display and our society might be moving in a better direction.

Stephen King: “Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.”
This is just funny, and oh so true!  Even though I enjoyed parts of Twilight, mainly Breaking Dawn (you know because suddenly Bella becomes a person on her own), Harry Potter is an amazing story and the movies have almost all lived up to the books.
