A Few Good Words

The past several weeks have been a bit crazy. I was sick with bronchitis then my husband came down with it.  Now he has heart trouble which we're dealing with.  C'est la vie. 

 I'm  a true believer in positive thinking and that dwelling on the negative only makes the problems and life itself worse. It can totally bring down your whole outlook on things.

So here are a few quotes I like.  Hope they help you along your way.  If you have a favorite quote,  share it with me.  I'd love to hear it.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.

What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail? - Robert H. Schuller 

When deeds speak, words are nothing. 
- Pierre-Joseph Proudhon 

You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind. -Author Unknown

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” 
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” — Maya Angelou 

“If you’re going through hell, keep going.” 
- Winston Churchill

“It is never too late to be who you might have been.” - George Eliot

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. — Mark Twain


  1. Donna, sorry you and your husband have been sick. Hope those heart problems aren't anything too serious.
    Here's one of my favorite quotes to add to your pile:
    "Everyman's life lies within the present, for the past is spent and done with, and the future is uncertain." - Marcus Aurelius

  2. Thanks. He's doing better and after the op. he'll be able to get off some of the meds.

    That's a great quote. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. Hugs to you and Don!!! Wishing him the best and a successful op & speedy recovery.

    I like your quotes! I have a nice long file of (mostly) writing quotes, but this one appeals to my practical side:

    Theodore Roosevelt
    Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
