Have a favorite quote? How about sharing? I'll start with one that I just saw in the gallery. Fantastic!

“Do not follow where the path
leads, Rather go where there
is no path and leave a trail”
- David Perkins -

Lin this is a great thread!!! I love the Perkins quote!

One of mine is from Helen Keller:

"When one door of happiness closes,
another opens, but often we look so
long at the closed door that we do
not see the one that has been opened for us."


...loves her some "O"
I have a million!!! But let me quickly go look and see which one to post today!

"I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach." ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Linda - You beat me to this. I was going to start this a week or so ago when I got a great quote from a friend about scrapbooking. Of course, I can't find it right now. I'll post it later!


So good to be back!
Here's one I love:

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

William Jennings

One of my faves is,

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun and find your shoulder to light on to bring you luck, happiness, and riches today, tomorrow, and beyond. ~ Irish Proverb


always chatty at the O!!
Great post!!! This post is going to really help me with a project I'm working on. I love Winnie the Pooh quotes so I'll throw in a handful of those.

“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.” ~Christopher Robin

“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever”

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered. "Yes, Piglet?" "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."” (My favorite)

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”

“I used to believe in forever, but forever is too good to be true.”

“"I wonder what Piglet is doing," thought Pooh.
"I wish I were there to be doing it, too."

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon”

“Poetry and Hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you.”

Here's one from me for today.
Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others stay awake and do them.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.
The fox from The Little Prince

Clara, I LOVE those!!! Lin, this is one I remember from one of your pages, also one of my all time faves by Frida Kahlo:

Pies, pa' qué los quiero, si tengo alas para volar?

“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”

WOW these are fabulous...

Cyn I LOVE that one!

It is funny that you did the little prince Linda one of my favorite quotes is from that :) It made me smile...

At night, when you look up at the sky,
since I shall be living on a star,
and since I shall be laughing on a star,
for you it will be as if all the stars are laughing.
You alone will have stars that can laugh!
And when you have got over your loss
(for we always do),
you’ll be happy to have known me.
You will always be my friend.
You will want to laugh with me.
The Little Prince

When I was younger, maybe 9 or 10 years old, my aunt bought me this framed picture for my bedroom wall, it was these cute teddy bears and this was the quote, I love this quote, sorry not sure who it is by....

Smile at tomorrow at the end of each today,
Think of all the happiness that’s sure to come your way,
Hold on to a good thought no matter how things seem,
Life is ever changing, were never too old to dream.

One that I like by Camus:

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

I saw this one today on a poster and thought wow what a great message for Nick's book I am sooo scrapping this one!

It's all about character.
Watch your thoughts;
they become words.
Watch your words;
they become actions.
Watch your actions,
they become habits.
Watch your habits;
they become character.
watch your character;
it becomes your destiny.
-Frank Outlaw
