I LOVE quotes!  I have always been on to write them on post-its and stick them on my walls, mirrors, refrigerator, etc.  just so that I can see them.  They can inspire.  Bring hope.  Fill a need.  Make you smile.  Make you laugh.  Make you cry.

This page is a place for me to put some of my favorite quotes.

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier.  The way it actually works is the reverse.  You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want."   ~Margaret Young

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."  ~Abraham Lincoln
