Like many of you, I have been fascinated by words for as long as I can remember. Quotes, in particular, resonate with me. I am on the look-out 24/7 for quotable sound bites I hear in everyday conversation. Here are two that came this week.
My nephew left for his mission this past Tuesday. He is the only child of my only sister. When I called to check on her heart, the best way she could describe her feelings was encapsulated in this rhyme she came up with.
"Fear not. Smile a lot."
She is surely a trooper as she rejoices in the kick in the gut as one let's go of her dearest child.
My mother and I go to lunch every Wednesday. This week she shared with me how difficult it can be getting old and having to figure out this new technology. She was referring to her new Cox Cable and how hard it is to learn a new system.
She smiled and said,
"I used to be a thinker . . . at least I thought I was."
Ponder this one. It is actually a great irony.
One last quote:
“God doesn’t require us to succeed. He only requires that you try.” Mother Teresa
Great words to live by. Takes the guilt right out of things.
Are you a "Quote Collector" also?
