  1. Yes, my friend, I love your quotes, too! They are wonderful and inspire us all. What a blessing they are when we are down and need that encouragement to get up and try again! Thank you for the reminder!

    Much love to you,


  2. the quote meant more knowing who said them and the circumstances of their things they had to overcome.

  3. I always love your quotes!

    You've probably seen this one [and it's longer than a quote] but it is attributed to Mother Teresa.

    People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

    If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

    If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

    What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

    If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

    The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

    Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

    In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

  4. What lovely and inspiring quotes! You always have the best and most thought provoking quotes. Have a nice week.

  5. Sylvia;
