Quotable Tuesday....a few Quotes of the Day

I love quotes. They can make you stop and ponder life in new ways.

Here's two of my favorites, one is a "reminder" (I first heard it in that "classic" movie, the Princess Diaries).....

"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Wow....it reminds me of my mom's favorite saying "he who angers you, controls you." A bit self explanatory.... I'll need to unpack this thought later.

The other quote, comes Suzanne Fisher Woods, a writing friend who uses her family background with the Amish community to write authentic fiction and non-fiction books.

"Faith is like a boomerang: begin using what you have and it comes back to you in greater measure." - Amish proverb

I hope that's the case, because frankly, sometimes it seems like the world is really big, and my faith is really small.

Here are a few other quotes that jumped out
at me in the last few days...enjoy...

"There can be no joy in living without joy in work."— St. Thomas Aquinas

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." - Mahatma Gandhi

"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." - Albert Einstein

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain." - Maya Angelou

"Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement."
- Henry Ford

"There are two ways to spread happiness; either be the light who shines it or be the mirror who reflects it." - Edith Wharton
