Words Of Wisdom

I have always loved quotes.  They are like a rich lotion for chapped hands,  or a beautiful flower you take the time to smell. They stick with me long after I have read them. Due perhaps to my zero attention span, apparently a sentence is all I can handle?  Regardless, I find them to be little nuggets of wisdom that often help me to see the world a little more clearly. 


You've got a lot of choices.  If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice. 
~Steven D. Woodhull

Now that it's all over, what did you really do yesterday that's worth mentioning?
  ~Coleman Cox

Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall.  Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day.  Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down.  And this is all life really means.  
~Robert Louis Stevenson

See everything; overlook a great deal; correct a little.  
~Pope John XXIII

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.  
~Author unknown, 
variation of an excerpt from "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Neibuhr

What a strange narrowness of mind now is that, to think the things we have not known are better than the things we have known.  
~Samuel Johnson

Just remember, there's a right way and a wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is to keep trying to make everybody else do it the right way.  
~M*A*S*H, Colonel Potter

And while you're at it take a minute to visit Imene at A Journey To A Simple Happy Life where she is giving away some beautiful jewelry that I think would look great on you, in an elegantly casual way.
