Do you have any favourites?

Here are couple of mine:


“Opportunity is missed by most people, because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” - Thomas Edison

“It doesn't matter to me if a man is from Harvard or Sing Sing. We hire the man, not his history.” - Henry Ford

“Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.” - Oscar Wilde

"Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life." - Confucius

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

"I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying." - Michael Jordan

"I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan

Oh what a wonderful thread!

I like "Always reach for the moon, because if you don't quite reach - you will fall among the stars"

"Don't take life seriously, you will never get out of it alive" - excuse the pessimism

"If you have to ask...the answer is no"

Love that quote from Ford, Brynjar!

I'll have to think on this a bit, and have more coffee....

I said that's life
(That's life)
And as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks stomping on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down
'Cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

Believe it or not I thought of this very one earlier when I was racking my brain for something to add here. What are the odds?

I still love John Lennon's quote (or phrase) Life's what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

I do, too; that's definitely one of my favorite quotes.

This is one of my favorites; I've seen it in catalogs as a framed print. The author is a 12-year-old girl:

"No boy is worth crying over, and the one who is won't make you cry."

....was just thinking, you could switch "boy" to "girl" and it would be just as true (IMO).

John always gets credited with that but he wasn't the actual originator.
