This is one of my favorite quotes . . .
An ounce of mama is worth a pound of clergy.

“If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”
- George S. Patton
That’s a great one. A similar one I like is, “If you two people always agree, one of them isn’t necessary.”
“Do no great things, only small things with great love.”
Sucn an important truth to remember.
Many, many years ago my Grandmother used to say, “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride”.
I had to think about that one for awhile but then I got it. Good one!
I have two – gotta love Mark Twain!
Don’t waste a minute not being happy. If one window closes, run to the next window—or break down a door.
— Brooke Shields
Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint. – Mark Twain
That Mark Twain quote is too funny; he was quite the character. And Brooke’s reminder is so necessary–don’t waste time with unhappiness.
“Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.” – James B. Conant
I have beheld a turtle once or twice in my life and find Mr. Conant’s statement to be very true!
His Grace is sufficient. It’s what I had put on my husband’s grave marker.
I’m so sorry you’ve had to deal with what to put on your husband’s grave marker but I am grateful that you found the perfect saying. It’s one that has real meaning for loss, and grief and the everydayness of going on in life without a beloved spouse. Blessings to you today.
“When the day comes, and it WILL come, that you have to choose between being liked and being respected, choose to be respected.”
Wow–that one really packs a punch. To be liked but not respected is something ANY of us would ever want!
“The faster I go, the behinder I get.”
Ha! Too, too true.
Oops hit return before I meant to!
Gail, is that a quote from someone?
My Mama always said, “Pretty is as Pretty does” I am assuming that if I do Pretty, then I will be pretty, well who knows, I always tried to do pretty, not sure it helped my appearance any! Have wonderful day!
Anonymous, that’s one of those quotations that has always puzzled me. I’m glad you’ve got it (sort of) figured out
Words . . . spoken, written or read, I love them all. I'm also a fan of photography, costume jewelry, thrift stores and hot peach cobbler. And? I'm a breast cancer survivor.
