Words of Wisdom From Names You Know

I love a good quote.  For me, they are gems to take out & admire when you need a lift.  Some people collect shoes, other collect figurines, I collect great quotes.  I have a ton, but am always looking for that next special saying to add to my collection.

 Do you have a quote you love???  Help me add to my collection!!!

Here are a few from names that should be easily recognizable~ I hope you enjoy them :)

"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." (Said by Christopher Robin to Pooh)

"No one can make you feel inferior without your permission"
Elenore Roosevelt

"The people who mind, don't matter. The people who matter, don't mind" Dr. Zeuss

"Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway" -John Wayne

"But I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep." Robert Frost

Hope you are all having a great day!  Thank you for all the wells wishes~ my son is doing much better (most important) and I am on my way to being well again :)


  1. So glad you are both feeling a bit better, Kelly. I really love quotes as well, and have done a couple of posts on them. I have lots that I love, but I'll give you one by Oscar Wilde - "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

  2. Christopher Robins quote is one of my favorite!

  3. How about these?

    Benjamin Franklin
    "There was never a good war, or a bad peace."
    Benjamin Franklin

  8. I thought that what michelle duggar said last night on their show was great! She said something like this (not sure exact words but basically this), when asked about having another baby and the chances of what josie went through happening again and if she could do it again would she, she said "yes, because sometimes the hardest things you go through in life bring the biggest blessings!" Loved that she said that!

  15. Thanks for following, I'm returning the favor! :) Some of my fave quotes are as follows:

    -When two hearts race, both win.

    -I'm like the most expensive, exotic item on a gourmet menu. People can wonder about the sensuous delights of the dish, but they can't afford such an expensive luxury.

    -If it isn't mad, passionate, extraordinary love, then it's a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life, and love shouldn't be one of them.

    My favorite quote comes from my mother in law. She says "Nothing bad ever happens which isn't followed by something good." I think of that whenever I'm having a rough day ... and sure enough, if I'm a little patient, the good always follows.
