Fun Monday!!


Robin over at Pensieve is in charge of our assignment for this week....and here it is:
Regardless of what motivated me to choose this for a theme, next week please share words that inspire and motivate you--brief or bloviatory, silly or serious, from great world leaders to last night's Comedy Central...from a Hallmark greeting card to your favorite book. Choose one, choose many; let the quotes stand on their own or tell where you first read or heard them and how they affected you. There's a lot of leeway with how this topic can be handled.

My submissions....in no particular order...

In art as in love, instinct is enough.
Anatole France

Women are like teabags. We don't know our true strength until we are in hot water!
Eleanor Roosevelt

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Mother Teresa

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney

A true friend is someone who is there for you when he'd rather be anywhere else.
Len Wein

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Mae West

When I go out I hope to leave life as Mae West did, satisfied and without regret!

'women are like teabags'~ love this one, actually I love them all, really good choices.

I LOVE Mae West quotes! She had so many funny ones - AND she was her own writer.

Faye said...

Ah, count on Mae West to cut to the chase! When you think about it, who would be crazy enough to want to re-live say your teenage years???

Some great words to live by.

Eleanor was just full of words of wisdom now wasn't she. :)

I loved all of these quotes you mention!!

Thanks so much for coming by and leaving all the nice well wishes - you are a good friend and I truly appreciate your concern. I am still recovering, but trying to get back into the swing of some things. Have a good day and I'll see you soon - Kellan

Thanks for stopping by and saying "hi". I will definitely have to give this one a go on my blog... although most of my favorite quotes come from my kids these days.
I LOVED all of your quotes. WONDERFUL!

Wonderful quotes. I like the one about women being like teabags and Mae West's one about living once.

Slowly I'm making my way to EVERYONE who joined in this week...it is a WORTHWHILE endeavor, but taking a ton of TIME!

Your list is fabulous...all of 'em! If I had to pick a favorite, I couldn't...Eleanor Roosevelt is ALWAYS worth repeating, and Mae West? Well, she often said it like no one else...straight and to the point!

Thanks for joining in this week :).

What an outstanding job you did! I had not heard the one from Len Wein but I certainly do agree with it. And I am blessed to have friends who fit that!
