Wise Words That Aren't My Own


I keep a quote journal, and always write down anything I find beautiful and wise while I'm reading a book.  At random times, I go through and read the quotes to help remind me of the beauty and strength I may be missing.  Even though I have a whole list, these are a few of my favorite quotes that have been on my mind lately.  What is one of your favorite quotes?

i have a journal just for inspirational and positive quotes to help get through life everyday too. my favorite is the recent one i just wrote down: "happines is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony." - M. Gandhi

This is a great idea. I keep a little notebook to write down thoughts and what not. Inspiring quotes would be a nice addition. These quotes are great, and the pictures you've chosen to go along with them are beautiful.

I do the same thing! I think it's always a great source for inspiration and a reminder of things to remember.

I keep a running email draft where I collect quotes and advice I love.

One of my fave all-time quotes is:
"Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple." - Dr. Seuss

keep this on my desk

" We have to learn to give ourselves a break - and others too. This doesn't mean we lower our standards or put up with poor behavior, but it does mean we increase our perspective about "small stuff"

Not Going Out Like That

I do the same thing with bible verses. Sometimes its hard to find the right words, so using others is the perfect way to express yourself.

MMB said...

This a long quote, but it's my all-time favorite one:

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will effect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything" -Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
