My friend Nicole suggested that I do a post of my favorite quotes, and I thought that that was a good idea. When I worked for Franklin Covey I had the classic day planner, and on each day was a different quote. I wrote down the ones that I really liked. Some I've already shared, here are some others:

"My friends have made the story of my life...turned my limitations into beautiful privileges and enabled me to walk serene and happy." Helen Keller

"It's never too late to be who you might have been." George Elliot

"People are always blaming circumstances for what they are...I don't believe in circumstances." George Bernard Shaw

"You can do what you have to do, and sometimes you can do it even better than you think you can." Jimmy Carter

"Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"That man is happiest who lives from day to day and asks no more, garnering the simple goodness of life." Euripides

"It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day to day basis." Margaret Bonnano

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." Martin Luther King

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the things you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt

"One of the sanest, surest and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others." Archibald Rutledge

"There are victories of the soul and spirit. Sometimes, even if you lose, you win." Elie Wiesel

"The best way out is always through." Robert Frost

"I've got my Replogle globe because you've got to keep a world view. You can't just live like you're the only person on the planet who matters." from the book "Hope was Here"

"How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something, but to be someone." Coco Chanel

"It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data." Arthur Conan Doyle

"If 'A' is a success in life, then A=X+Y+Z: X is work, Y is play, and Z is keeping your mouth shut." Albert Einstein

"We are in this life with a marvelous inheritance, a divine endowment. How different this world would be if every person realized that all...actions have eternal consequences. How much more satisfying our years may be if we recognize that we form each day the stuff of which eternity is made.

"Believe in are a Child of God. You have something of Divinity within you. Believe in your capacity to do great and good things." Gordon B. Hinckley

This makes me so happy! I've been looking for good stuff to put on my walls in vinyl (I can't put pictures and shelves on a bunch of walls b/c they could crash down on someone's head). I love all of these! Come to my house and see, okay? :)
