    Quotes ....

    Thought I'd start a thread of quotes you have found helpful/inspirational... I opened a book to read to my baby granddaughter and found several... Here's one:

    A Sure Way To a Happy Day

    Happiness is something
    we create in our mind,

    It's not something you search for
    And so seldom find--

    It's just waking up
    And beginning the day

    By counting our blessings
    and kneeling to pray--

    It's giving up thoughts
    that breed discontent

    And accepting what comes
    as a "gift heaven-sent"

    It's giving up wishing
    for things we have not

    And making the best of
    whatever we've got--

    It's knowing that life
    is determined for us,

    And pursuing our tasks
    without fret, fume or fuss--

    For it's by completing
    what God gives us to do

    That we find real contentment
    and happiness, too.

    Quotes ....

    On Doing Right....Abe Lincoln

    Another:

    On Doing Right

    I do the very best I know how--the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.

    Abraham Lincoln

    Quotes ....

    Character is what you are in the dark.

    Dwight L. Moody

    Good habits are not made on birthdays, nor Christian character at the new year. The workshop of character is everyday life. The uneventful and commonplace hour is where the battle is lost or won.

    Well, you know I'm gonna come up with something strange, right?

    "As much as I try to an easygoing, strech your wings and fly type ... I just can't stop trying to burst people into flames with my mind."

    I found this in a catalog recently and it calmed me down just thinking about it. Yeah, I know I'm a freak. :P And I do have more normal quotes that I like more, I'll just have to look for them.

    Quotes ....

    This Day

    You wake up in the morning and lo! Your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life. It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. No one can teake it from you. It is unstealable. And no one receives either more or less than you receive.

    Arnold Bennett
