Quotes

I got this idea from Mel, who runs a beautiful blog called 3 Times the Fun.  Here is where I will keep quotes I think are worth saving and sharing.

Beginning with my favorite:

“The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these, the spirit blooms timidly, and struggles to the light amid the thorns.”       -George

“It’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.” – Benjamin Button’s letter to his daughter.

“To say that having a baby changes your life is a great, great understatement.  Having a baby explodes your life and you may or may not be able to find your old self among the pieces.”      -Susan Cheever

“If you can’t be a good example, then you’ll just have to be a horrible warning.”     -Catherine Aird

“Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose.”     –Cheryl Strayed

“The world will never starve for want of wonders; but only for want of wonder.”     – G.K. Chesterton

“Today I shall behave as if this is the day I’ll be remembered.” -Dr Seuss

“Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.” -A.A. Milne

“A first child is your own best foot forward, and how you do cheer those little feet as they strike out. You examine every turn of flesh for precocity, and crow it to the world. But the last one: the baby who trails her scent like a flag of surrender through your life when there will be no more coming after–oh, that’ s love by a different name.”
― Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible
