Thread: ABCs of Quotes

  1. ABCs of Quotes

    Thought I'd start a thread to inspire us all with some quotes. So the idea is when you are up next, think of a word with the next letter and then share a quote about that word. Try and think about words that can be used in scrapbooking. If it takes you a bit to find a quote, just post your word in here and come back and edit with your quotes so we have less likelihood of simultaneous posts or waisted research.

    I'll start it off...(found several i liked)

    A = Attitude

    "Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. ~Betty Smith"

    "Anywhere is paradise; it's up to you. ~Author Unknown"

    "We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails. ~Author Unknown"

    "Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you. ~Maori Proverb"

    "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. ~Robert Brault"
    I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

  8. Fame hmm?

    “Fame and riches are fleeting. Stupidity is eternal”
    Don Williams, Jr

    “Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”
    Henry David Thoreau

    “The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do without thought of fame. If it comes at all it will come because it is deserved, not because it is sought after.”

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    “Fame is rot; daughters are the thing”
    James Matthew Barrie


  9. Girls...

    A girl is a giggle with freckles on it.

    A girl is like a butterfly...
    Pretty to look at....but hard two catch !

    Little girls are like angels without wings.

    Sugar and spice and everything nice.
    That's what little girls are made of.

    Daughters are little girls that grow up to be your best friend.

    Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.

    Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people. They are born with a little bit of angelshine about them, and though it wears thin sometimes there is always enough left to lasso your heartóeven when they are sitting in the mud, or crying temperamental tears, or parading up the street in motherís best clothes. Alan Beck

  10. H = History

    "False history gets made all day, any day, the truth of the new is never on the news." - Adrienne Rich

    "In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future." - Alex Haley

    “I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - myth is more potent than history - dreams are more powerful than facts - hope always triumphs over experience - laughter is the cure for grief - love is stronger than death” - Robert Fulghum

    “You have to know the past to understand the present.” - Carl Sagan

    "Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life." - Thich Nhat Hanh
