These are a list of my favorite quotes that I keep them on my desktop.
To love another person is to see the face of God.
–Les Miserables, Broadway Production (Boublil and Schonberg)
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”
“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.
–Johannes A. Gaertner
Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
— Danny Kaye
“Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God.”
— Kurt Vonnegut – “Cat’s Cradle”
“There are many paths to enlightenment. Be sure to take one with a heart.”
— Lao Tzu, “Tao Te Ching”February 3, 2008 at 2:53 pm #121482JudeParticipant
Here’s a good one:If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.

Here are some of my favorites:
“For me words are a form of action, capable of influencing change.”
“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.” ~Marian Wright Edelman
“Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not how much time do we have. The question is what shall we do with it.”
– Anna Robertson Brown, author”
Most of us serve our ideals by fits and starts. The person who makes a success of living is one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That’s dedication.

Here’s a bird theme. I’m ready for spring! Aren’t you? :dance:
Use the talents you possess – for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best. ~Henry Van Dyke
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. ~Chinese Proverb
The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing. ~Eric BerneMarch 25, 2008 at 12:17 pm #121725Pam BKeymaster
The world was created for each one of us individually. We were born with divine sparks and our task is to bring them to the world in which we live. Our spark is unique. Our spark is valuable. We are important to God and to the world. Once we learn this about ourselves, we can fan our sparks into a flame.

One of my fav’s…
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is a beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it!”
