Words To Learn By

We find it most illuminating to read quotes of yesteryear.

We found these on Goodreads.  Hopefully, you find something to take away with you.  Please help yourselves.  Put them in your hearts and carry them with you.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
― Dr. Seuss

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
― Oscar Wilde

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
― Albert Einstein

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

“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

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope:  The Essential Writings and Speeches

And, on that note, a sweet, most gentle reminder to love more….in everything you do, love more!

      We are never too old to miss or need our mothers. She had many good words and loved you dearly Coral. So glad that Dr.Seuss quote was a helpful reminder to be grateful for the time you had with her 🙂
