    Live life with courage, compassion, and honor and you shall live well all the days of your life.


    Oh, and one other I pilfered from the John Wayne flick, Rooster Coogburn.

    "Fill yer hands, you sonofabitch!"

    (Sorry. Feeling a little "Duke-ish", today.)

    I've always lived that, just never expressed it...

    "I'm strong enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me!"

    Okay, just kidding, that's Stuart Smalley. (Or was it Stuart Smiley?) :grin

    Seriously now, how about:

    "Life is a journey, not a destination."

    Or, when it comes to writing:

    "You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." -Jack London

    Re: Mine

    If we're allowed to mention several, here are several that my daughter's death made real to me -

    "To all survivors everywhere - Always choose to live life to the fullest. You never know how much that choice affects the world around you."

    "Life is lumpy. A lump in the oatmeal, a lump in
    the throat and a lump in the breast are not the same kind of
    lump. One needs to learn the difference." -- Robert Fulghum

    "Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden."
    --Corrie Ten Boom

    When I was a girl, I belonged to a church group called "Explorers." We had to memorize the motto, and it's one I still try and live up to today:


    As an Explorer it is my purpose
    To live each day with God's love to guide me,
    To grow each day, exploring God's world of wonder,
    To give of myself each day,
    For God has given me a life to live and share.

    You never see a girl with a high ponytail about to slit her wrists.

    (I forget where I got that from, but whenever I'm feeling down, I stick my hair in a high ponytail. Or dye it pink. It's so true.)

    Fortune favors the brave.

    (Don't know where the line's from originally, but it stuck with me in the Aida song. Taped above my computer monitor.)

    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

    (--Me, I think)

    Start at the beginning, and when you get to the end, stop.

    (Monty Python?)

    I'm not very good at remembering where quotations are from. I just realized that.

    Also,

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy brownies, which can cause happiness.
