my new favorite quote.

i love quotes.
some funy. some deep. some make no sense.

no comments, please. i'm very sensitive right now.

anywhooo...we saw this one while watching my Alton on Feasting on Asphalt on the Food Network.

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. - Andre Gida

amen that.

definitely words to live by...especially for me right now.

do you have a quote? doesn't matter if it's silly or sentimental...if you want to share, post a comment on your favorite.

who knows - maybe i'll steal it from you. after all, your pens aren't safe near me, why should your quote be safe either?

good night.

Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go. (Author Unknown)

One of my favorites is; (and I know I'm going to mess it up...)

"There is nothing more amazing or wonderful than just about anyone's life story." Jan Karon

I think it appeals to the scrapbooker in me.

ooooooooo I LOVE LOVE LOVE QUOTES!! On my old blog I had a plethora of them.

One of my fav's is by Nelson Mandela "the most powerful of weapons with which we can change the world is Education."
I also like this one by James Baldwin "Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without, and know we cannot live within."
One of my all time fav sorta silly quotes...silly but still makes a point "Keep your crayons sharp, your sticky tape untangled, and your markers capped" that little nugget of wisdom was from MR Dressup, Canada's answer to Mr. Rogers.
And last but definately not least, two quotes from a couple of my fav teachers..
"Don't worry, no small children will die if you don't get an A on your paper" (a Socialogy prof told me when I went back to university)
and "for every dirty old sock there is a dirty old shoe" (from my highschool math teacher who was pondering teenage love dramas)

I love that and it speaks so true to me right now. It'll soon find a home over on my blog!

I don't know who said these but I have two.

Don't mistake breathing for living.
