Tuesday I was home sick and started cleaning out desk and kitchen drawers and organizing documents into files. I came across little “words of wisdom”:

“Life is a Journey – and the end of one part is always the beginning of another.”

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” – Kenneth Blanchard

“You are entirely up to you. Make your body. Make your life. Make Yourself.” – Nike Ad…I keep this one on my fridge!

The next few quotes are ones from a compilation of quotes endorsed by Alden Aaroe my dad gave us at Christmas.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Don’t be too big for small things and you won’t be too small for big things.”

“Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them more.” – Oscar Wilde

“Don’t judge a man by his relatives; remember, he didn’t choose them.”

“A smile can add a great deal to one’s face value.” 🙂

“Why can’t life’s problems hit us at 18 when we know everything?”

“Happy memories recquire preparation.”

“You’ll win more friends with your ears than with your mouth.”

“All things are difficult before they are easy.”

“Maybe hard work never killed a person. But have you ever heard of anyone who rested to death?”

“A rut will at least keep you in the right track.”

“If you want to write something that has a chance of living on forever, sign a mortgage.”

“Most people want to be delivered from temptation but would like it to keep in touch.”

“Your place in the sun is not in the shade of your family tree.”

“Those who laugh, last.”

“It is nice to be important, but it is important to be nice.”

“Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice.”

Now that you’re all inspired, have a great day!
