Thoughts on Life... For Jen, Kate and Roe

My friend Nikki of Chaos in the Country, knowing that I LOVE doing meme's, tagged me for this one! Seriously, I really do love meme's, I think that they are fun and I always learn something, both about my friends and about myself.

In this meme, Who is Part of My Life, you choose a quote that speaks to your heart and dedicate it to three other bloggers. All of my friends who read this blog can choose to participate. If you do, leave a comment here so I can come and check out your quotes! As I already said, my blog here today is dedicated to Jen, Kate and Roe.

In the true nature of a Libra, I couldn't pick just one. That would have been WAY too easy! And, being the "funky ecclectic" that my friend Jen tells me I am, these quotes all speak about my life, but also to my friends. I hope you guys will enjoy reading them, and I look forward to reading yours! Please take a moment to really think about each one, because I think that each quote reverberates a greater truth, which is what makes them worth repeating in the first place.

" All happy people are grateful. Ungrateful people can not be happy. We tend to think that being unhappy leads people to complain but it's truer said that complaining leads people to be unhappy."

"The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet." James Oppenheim.

"Learn the richness of solitude and quiet. That "still small voice" is yearning to be heard. Susan Jeffers

“We have no right to ask when sorrow comes, ‘Why did this happen to me?’ unless we ask the same question for every moment of happiness."

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling but the staying down." Mary Pickford

"Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward in the same direction". Antione de Saint -Exqupery.

"Once you choose HOPE, anything's possible..." Christopher Reeve

And my favorites, by one of my favorite authors:

"We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, but to always battle on."

" The Time is coming Harry, when we all must choose between what is RIGHT and what is easy..." J. K. Rowling

As I said, each one of these quotes speak about areas of my life, and I hope that they will speak to each one of you.

Great quotes! And thank you for adding me to your blog roll. I'll be adding you onto mine as well. I love new bloggy-friends. :-)

Love this! I miss you, too! We have to try and get together soon. I'm going to do the meme now...

Oh your quotes were wonderful! I especially like the ones by Christopher Reeve, Mary Pickford and J.K. Rowling.

All right, just got mine (man it took me almost an hour to just narrow it down to a few...). Enjoy!
