I love the phrase "Like stars through my soul" inspired by this Victor Hugo quote:

"I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes, - and the stars through his soul."

I had it engraved on the champagne flutes we used at our wedding and one of my first Valentine's gifts was a collage I made built around "Like Stars Through My Soul".

The necklace is lovely!

What a lovely necklace. My favorite quote is:

"If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed
with a mosquito."

I like it because it's encouraging, but without being too sappy.

My current favorite: Live without fear. It's actually from a Christian prayer (the next line is, "Your Creator has made you holy"), but I like that it doesn't have to have a religious undertone. And, you know, it's a useful thing to remember.

"Life is a beautiful garden." I'm not sure that's an exact quote, but that's one that I love. Not only because I love gardens and springtime in general, but because it's so true. Life is full of many different flowers and plants, also many disappointments and failures, but there's always a chance for a new beginning. (Now, if only I could live by that ;))

I'm a tree-hugging hippie at heart. And I love the Latin language...even though it's no longer spoken! Strangely, it's the only foreign language I can still remember from high school and college (although I also took German and Spanish). For awhile now, I've wanted this saying inscribed on a necklace / pendant: "servo orbis terrarum" - means "save the earth." I also like these two: "ago viridis" and "viridis est solus via" - meaning "live green" and "green is the only way." I have a few others...lol.
Thanks so much for the fabulous contest!

This may seem very strange to some, but this is my favorite phrase and my story behind it:

There is this game, Drakengard 2. In this game there is a young man, Nowe, with exceptional power. He is often hailed as the "Savior" by his superiors and the others around him, however, he seems himself as being an ordinary man. During the game, he meets with a young woman named Manah, who believes what she is doing, to help the people, is the correct thing to do. Nowe helps her, however, it ends up that she is really actually destroying the balance of the world instead. She goes crazy. The world goes in Chaos. Toward the end of the game... Nowe falls, injured, due to battling a greater power. During this time, Manah gains back her sanity and runs to him. Nowe looksat her and says...

"I wish I were a savior... I want to save you."
