mobile quotes

for most text-crazy, always needing to be connected Pinoy, text messaging (or formally, SMS) has become more than a way for communication (who would've thought one letter, K, can be a source of comfort?). it has evolved to a source of inspiration, affirmation or comic relief to its recipient. in this phylum of text messaging comes text quotes.

may it be funny, inspiring, or mind twisting, text quotes are on-the-go solutions for the increasingly mobile individual who need a quick laugh or pick-me-up inspiration by just one peek of your inbox.

for me, the quotes i save in my phone are usually the funny or inspiring kind. the anti-sentimental in me immediately delete love-related quotes. to those who send me these kinda quotes, you have been forewarned.

my old N3530 actually have a folder especially for quotes. unfortunately, this feature is not available in my samsung C14. thus, my old quotes are (hopefully) still saved in that old phone, and my sister has not deleted them.


here are some of the quotes that occupy space in my inbox. first is a girl empowerment from longtime buddy, tabby

The smarter the woman gets, the more difficult for her to find the right man--Oprah

men, is that true? anyway, the quote below is from fellow single, shally

To the women of UP: you can walk into a room wearing a t-shirt and jeans with no make-up on, yet be the most attractive girl. For at the end of the day, the world will look up to you not because you look like the next top model, but because you are a thinking woman with opinion. Fashion sense helps, but brains will always be deadlier than a pair of stilettos.

my apologies to non-UP readers, but here's another UP-related quote, this time from gradschool buddy and fellow overworked employee, shirley

UP made you in such a way that when the world is sitting, you would be standing...
and when the world is standing, you will stand out...
and when the world stands out, you will be outstanding...
and when the world tries to be outstanding, you would be the STANDARD.

di naman obvious na taga-UP ako ano?

here's some of the many quotes from text buddy, hazy

if i were an angel, i'll guide you all the time.
if i were a genie, i'll grant all your wishes.
but i'm just human, so...wala lang!
kalokohan lang talaga ang maooffer ko!=)

Friendship has one law.
Never make your friends feel that they're alone!
disturb your friends as much as you can
like I'm always doing.

even officemates have their share of text space. here's anton with his take during easter

...a true friend is someone who knows you're a good egg, even if you're a little cracked...

turning religious (yan ba ang epekto ng lawschool?) mitch goes with this one

the shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor...the one who kneels to God can stand up to anything...before the night ends, remember, "that in all things, God may be glorified"

to end this entry, here's my cousin hazel and good buddy yya with several affirmations

Have you ever thought that when people say you've changed,
it's just because you stopped living your life...
THEIR way?

Superman isn't brave. You can be brave if you're indestructive. Its everyday people like you and me who are brave, knowing we can easily be defeated, but still continue forward. That's true bravery--Batman
