I'm in a quoting mood today. These got my attention:
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
- Bill Cosby
Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.
Take it easy -- but take it.
- Woody Guthrie
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.
- Robert Frost
People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.
- Ramona L. Anderson
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
- Erica Jong
Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it.
- Agatha Christie
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
