You'll Want to Save This...

It's an understatement to say I like quotes. I love them. If you check my Twitter account, you'll see that I have saved many, many quotes as my favorite tweets.

I just can't get enough of them.

Quotes to me are like candy: bite-sized bits of sweet delight for my brain. They inspired me, console me and push me to be a better person. For me, collecting quotes is like compiling the Cliff Note version of the world's wisdom.

So today I am going to share one of my new favorite quotes which I found as a friend's status message in Facebook. The great thing about this quote in particular is the use of household items as reminders for the message. I can see myself memorizing this quote and actually being reminded of the quote and it's message simply by looking around my bedroom every day.

Now that has the potential to be a great way to start every day!

When I woke up this morning, I asked myself: What are some of the secrets of success in life?

I found the answer right there in my very room.

The Fan said:
Be cool.
The Roof said:
Aim high.
The Window said:
See the world.
The Clock said:
Every minute is precious.
The Mirror said:
Reflect before you act.
The Door said:
Push hard for your goals.
And don't forget, the Carpet said:
Kneel down & pray.

(Gonna try this again...seems like Blogger hates me :-) because I have trouble commenting on people's blogs who use Blogger. Dunno, maybe operator error on my part?)Anyhow...

My favorite quote: "when all you can do is all you can do then all you can do is enough"

Of course it escapes me who said it. Maybe Mark Twain? Anyhow I found this while I was in college. Full-time student, full-time job, 5 kids at home...I lived and died by that quote, especially during finals.

Now, even more so. But I liked your quote...so very inspirational!

This quote from Rumi is one of my favorites:

Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving — it doesn't matter,
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times,
Come, come again, come.
