This is post #101. Isn't that nuts?? This had me contemplating my readers. Several of my readers are also facebook friends of mine who I pay to read my blog. I mean whose houses I clean so they will read my blog. Lets just say they happen to read my blog.
If you are indeed my facebook friend please know I have not only diligently read your favourite quotes listed (and everything else you happen to list), but the literary snob in me has determined the merit of said quote as I'm also highly pretentious. I tend to think quotes reveal as much about the admirer as they do the writer. These are the crème de la crème I have found among my friends pages. I'll put the first name of the person who led me to the quote. This is flattering, not at all creepy. Well, maybe a little of both.
"If you are a dreamer come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher a liar, a hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer, if you're a pretender come sit by my fire, for we have some flax golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!"
Shel Silverstein - Thank you Mary! This led me to look for further quotes of his and I found this one that is forever in my memory.
“Tell me I'm clever, Tell me I'm kind, Tell me I'm talented, Tell me I'm cute, Tell me I'm sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I'm perfect-- But tell me the truth.” I've never in my life been more accurately described.
"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world"
Anne Frank - Mel
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Mark Twain- Priscilla
"People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun's out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light within."
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross - Elda
"I like pigs. Dogs look up at us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."
Winston Churchill- Tim
"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today."
Dale Carnegie - Holly
“The silence of good people is worse than the actions of bad people.”
Malalai Joya- Keri
"To love another person is to see the face of God"
Victor Hugo- Alicia
"life should be fragrant, rooftop to the basement"
"The world is a book, and those who don't travel read only a page."
St. Augustine- Nicole
"In the depths of winter, I find in me invincible summer"
Albert Camus - Shelly
Remember, the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love. - Sophocles
