These quotes were all taken from a small gift book I received for Christmas, called: "Stepping Out, On the Pathway to Your Dreams" "It is important to know I have a source of strength beyond my own" Elizabeth Dole "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you" The Book of Matthew "I discovered I always have choices, and sometimes it's only a choice of attitude" Judith Knowlton "No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit" Helen Keller "The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you are still a rat" Lily Tomlin "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face....You must do the thing which you think you cannot" Eleanor Roosevelt "If you have made mistakes...there is always another chance for you...You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down" Mary Pickford "Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent" Eleanor Roosevelt

Never forget that the fruits of our work are not final in themselves. Production is meant to make our lives easier, to give our lives a touch of beauty and refinement, but we should not allow ourselves to be degraded into mere slaves of production. ---Albert Einstein To live is to war with the trolls. ---Ibsen If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing. ---Anatole France Science is a long history of learning how not to fool ourselves. ---Richard Feynman Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them. ---Ann Landers

Two of my favorite quotes are: "The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there." from L.P. Hartley's book The Go-Between Also, from Cervantes Don Quioxte, "Madness is not the inability to see life as it is, but rather the inability to see life as it should be".

"For all things are yours: life and death, and the present and the future. All things are yours." I like it for what it lists, and what is doesn't list: the past. "By the waters of Babylon I sat down and wept." It's a very practical action. I think they're both from Ecclesiastes, but I'm not sure. mcatherine

by Will Shakespeare "Things done are won joy's soul lies in the doing." I love this especially when I only want to crawl under the covers and be a non-thing who is busy not doing.
