Don't Quote Me

I'm feeling quite un-inspired tonight, and I have no words from my own brain ready to gush forth, so I am stealing other peoples!

I thought I would share with you some of my favourite quotes. The first one is my favourite, I even used it in my wedding speech, the next few are ones that have stayed in my mind throughout my life...

"Life isn't about how many breaths you take, it's about how many moments take your breath away." Anon

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" Eleanor Roosevelt

"What is Real?" asked the Rabbit one day.
"Real isn't how you are made", said the Skin Horse. "You become. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or have to be carefully kept.
The Velveteen Rabbit, Margery Williams

These are some other favourites...

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." Ghandi

"I am a deeply superficial person." Andy Warhol

"Outside of a dog, a book is Man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read. Groucho Marx

The problem in the world today is communication. Too much communication. Homer Simpson
(My husband and I actually quote this when we're cranky at each other for some communication error or other. Never fails to crack us up.)

These two I found when I was looking for a quote for my blog header...

"Insanity is heriditary; you get it from your kids." Sam Leve

"Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself."
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth."
Kahlil Gibran

And this one I run through my head right before I walk into just about every party / event I go to:

"Remember, no one is thinking about you, they're thinking about themselves, just like you."
Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination, Helen Fielding



  1. I love your quotes... One of my favorites is from the movie "Waiting to Exhale" by Angela Bassett.
    "Hell, I'm not worried. But YOU on the other hand should be!" lol. Do not ask me why I do.. I just do. Be blessed my down under bloggy buddy.

  2. Hey we are on the same page sister. You covered off my favourites.
