Excellent followup to your previous post. I have lots of words to live by, but when it comes to inspiration for getting something done I like;

"Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you are probably right."

Translation? If you think you can do it, you will do it. If you think you can't do it, you are likely to fail. It is all in the attitude!



another place to look for cool quotes



patches of Godlight by jan karon....whom wrote the mitford series a very funny, laugh and cry, kind of reading, i found to be very inspirational...with alot of favorites.

then another family favorite- the bible. quoted by many daily.

i forgot to mention...did i say the bible, famous for being quoted and misquoted.......

one that truely inspires me
mathew 25:35-36 for i was hungry and you gave me something to eat, i was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, i was a stranger and you invited me in. i needed clothes and you clothed me, i was sick and you looked after mee... the king will reply, i tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me...

my husband and i, used to invite strangers to eat with us, and pick up their tab. my brother and i did too, lonely people to sit with us... comfort the lonely.
