I love motivational and thought provoking Quotes!  I have litterally hundreds of Favorite Ones, which you all know I  add and share with most of my post.  It's been very dark and dreary here most of the past week and I am now fighting a sinus infection and recovering from a stressful month so far.  So I thought this post would Cheer me and Encourage us all! :-)

A few of my Favorite Quotes:

  1. I like all the quotes, but Dickens is my fav today

  2. "If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere." So sorry you've had a bad month, but actually this quote would apply to you now! I,too, love quotes, and I lost all my favorite ones with the careless click of a finger a few months ago!! So now I am rebuilding. I love your quote list!

  3. You sure have and know a lot of those inspirational quotes. I have to say one of my favorites are if you set something free and it comes back to you it is yours, if it does not it never was....I know I messed it up, but you know it. My grandmother had lots of quotes, but they were not always inspirational...example..."where there's a park theres a pervert", "It is as easy to love a rich man as a poor man", "what a tangles wen we weave when we first set out to deceive...Oh I can go on an on:) My granmother" was a real TRIP and a half!

  4. Loved your quotes...

    One of my favorites is:
    Be the change you wish to see in the world. -Gandhi

    Great quote are my specialty over at Optimal Optimist! : )

  5. "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift, and that is why it's called the present."
    - Kung Fu Panda

    Yeah, I watch way too many movies...

  6. I read this and kept wondering which one I love most. Wow. I love them all. I thought my favorites were 1 and 2 but then I read that, "Every morning we are born again" and I melted. I love the concept, the freedom, the limitless exploring that one can do- I love it!

  7. "Always do your best and let the Lord do the rest."
    -Norman Bill aka my daddy

    I sure did love the other quotes too. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for stopping by, sure love it when you leave a comment. :o)

    Take care and have a blessed afternoon.

  8. When I was still in grief from my two berevements I bought some self help books.Paul McKenna wrote one qoute which has remained with me these past 5 years "Todays Gratitude Buys you Tomoorow's Happiness" it has hepled me through happy and sad times.


  9. quotes are an essential part of learning, great story dear xx

  10. "Through the darkness there is light."

    Hope things are improving for you. Get better, soon:) *Hugs*

  16. I will have to think about that for a while. I have one from a Dean Koontz book posted at the top of my blog just under the header from Lao Tzu. But I have many other faves and I will have to TRY to remember to look for a few that really stand out for me.

  17. You posted some wonderful quotes. :) A quote I read recently and really liked is, "Forgiveness is the greatest form of love."

  18. People need love the most when they deserve it the least.
    And This too shall pass.
    I'm 51 years old and both of these have proved true time and again in my life.
    Mother Teresa said my other favorite -
    We can do no great things;
    only small things with great love.
