Always Eat Dessert First

This week we had the honor of interviewing Bob Marshmallow. Bob's portfolio of Quotifuls is known for it's pensive and intellectual character. Read the interview, and if you are in need of some deep life thinking as well, follow Bob Marshmallow on Quotiful to discover more great quotes!

Quotiful: We love the pensive nature of the quotes you share to the Quotiful community. They make us reflect and more importantly; move us to take action towards making positive change. What experiences in your life have shaped these values?

Bob: One experience of being afraid of change was when there was a chance that I might not have been able to see any of my friends for the year of 8th grade. There was a chance that my family would have to move. I was afraid that I wouldn't make any new friends, let alone, see my other friends again. Another experience was when my best friends were all going to a certain high school; unlike me, which was when I was put in a situation in which I would be in a class with some of my recent classmates, whom never spoke to me too nicely. When nobody could help me through these situations, I read books. All sorts of books. And I kept on moving because of the motivating quotes I now keep in mind every day.

Quotiful: What's your favorite quote or motto in life and why is it important to you?

Bob: My favorite quote is said by John Muir, "The power of imagination makes us infinite."

This is my favorite quote because without creativity, what would the world be like now? Today, you can see a 10 year old with an iPhone 6, rather than making mud pies or pretending to be a superhero who saves the world from a villain. Without imagination, these 10 year olds wouldn't have an iPhone to check their Facebook status on. This quote inspires me to always think of awesome new things and ideas.

Quotiful: What core message do you hope to inspire others with?

Bob: My life motto is below:

"Be who you are. Do what you love and smile whenever you can. And always eat dessert first, because life is short."
