With A Little Help From My Friends Like You. Please help.

Hello you awesome person you! As you know I’ve been working on a mural in beautiful downtown Pensacola, and I need your help.

mural 1I’ll be finishing the mural in the next few days, which is super exciting for me. I am aiming to get it done before Gallery Night on Friday, September 16th, and there is something special I would like to ask you.

The very last finishing touch of this mural is going to be small, positive quotes, throughout the design. Originally, I was thinking of using famous quotes, but I think there is something much more special that can be done with this piece.


Please send me your special quote… please?

I would like you to send me short, special, positive quotes that either you say, heard, or read. It could be something that someone you know said, and it inspired you, or a mantra that you say to yourself that gets yourself going. It could be a famous quote as well, as long as it means something to you.

This mural will capture your quote for the world to see, for as long as it stands in downtown Pensacola.

I would love for as many Pensacolians as possible to submit their quote, but I hope to get responses from other cities, and all around the world.

Just send me your quote, the person that says it (leave it blank if you want it to be anonymous) and your city.

You can leave it in the comments, respond to this email if you are subscribed to me, or send me an email. You can also leave your quotes on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or any of my other social accounts.

Also, please share this with anyone that you think would be interested.

Please respond by September 15th, 2016 7:00pm.

Thank you! You are awesome! I’ll be posting pictures and stuff when it is done… or you can visit downtown Pensacola and see your quote. 🙂

  4. My dad used to always say, “Do you know why you’re the best? You’re the best because you’re a Barnes.” His name was Jim Billy Barnes. He was a cop for the City of Pensacola for 30 years – remarkable because he did when he was 49. This quote means you’re the best because you’re you. It always made me feel awesome and sometimes even now that I’m 40, when I get down, I think, why am I down?! I’m the best because I’m a Barnes. I’m best because I’m me!

    1. I love that! Such an awesome story!

      1. He died when he was 49 not “did.” Sorry….

      2. He sounds like he was and is an amazing soul.

  5. “Never loan anything to a person that which you would not also be willing to give to them.” –my mother

    A conversation between me and my mother when I was four years old:

    Mother: I love you more than all the blades of grass in the world.

    Me: I love you more than all the leaves on all the trees.

    Mother: I love you more than allll the stars in the sky.

    Me: I love you allll the manys.

    1. That is ALL so beautiful! I love it! Your four year old conversation is wonderful! I may have to quote you myself “I love you allll the manys!”

      1. I have a few friends who’ve adopted the phrase themselves. Feel free! I like knowing it’s going around.

      2. Thank you 😊 you’re awesome!

  10. When I was in college and had just broken up with my high school boyfriend, my father wiped my tears and told me to “Never depend on someone else for your happiness.” 30 years later, it is still my most repeated advice to myself. If you decide to use this, you can attribute it to “Dad, Milton, DE” or just “Dad”.

    1. So true Maja! That’s brilliant!

  11. Let your love for others be as gentle as a slow rain, but when they are weak let your love be as strong as the tide kissing the sand.

  14. “The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had never seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.” (unknown). May be a bit long for what you need, However this quote has stayed with me since I was a teenager. As you know a very long time. It helped change the way I look at things~~. Much Love as Always.

  15. Breathe in, breath out, move on.

  16. Spend your life doing strange things with weird people

    1. I LOVE that!!! Omg, so perfect!

  17. My Grandmother (who raised me) said never ever forget your heritage. It tells the story of where
    your family came from (a mixture of German (from overseas), native american, & deep southern roots) all that came together in Mississippi alone the Gulf Coast and gave you life in the deep
    South in March 1946. This she told me in 1964 my last year in High School and something I am proud of and have tried to pass on to my Kids and GrandKids.

    1. That’s awesome! Heritage is so important.
