Quotable Sunday #20



Quotable Sunday is brought to you by Toni, from A Daily Dose of Toni - why don't you join us? Here are the basic and easy-to-follow rules...come on and join in, it's fun! ;)

The rules (for newbies)~Go to your blog and post one or more of your favorite quotes.~Go to Toni's and sign mister linky with the link to your post and then go visit the other participants and leave some comment love.~Spread the word of course...we want lots of Quotes to read. :)

This week I decided to share some of the quotes that my husband has sent to me over the past few months. He usually e-mails me one a day from work. So instead of a word a day, we do a quote a day. I love that he thinks of me during his hectic day, and he says that he loves that I love getting them!
Hope you enjoy this weeks quotes and have a great week ahead!

  4. Hi Peggy, I've seen your comments all around cyberspace, I'm surprised it's taking me so long to find your blog! Love your heading picture of the sunset in Chicago. Beautiful!

    Lots of great quotes, and that's so sweet that your husband will send them to you. I love all quotes by Mother Teresa, so that one you posted is a favorite of mine.

    But this one is so true too...

  5. I think Mary Pickford's quote is my favorite.

    One I've learned to live by about 5 years ago? "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger." I learned that one the heard way and it's so true!

    I love proverbs, almost always makes sense to me. I say almost because, I sometimes shake my head and go Huh? But then I read it again and I get it and am glad that I do. I'm just dense sometimes! :)
