Fitting Quotes to live by.....Page 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
I often find myself thinking these fitting quotes:

Rome wasn't built in a day and neither was Greece. ( I added a bit.)

What goes around, comes around.

This, too, shall pass. (This is one I am giving more thought these days.)

Rules are meant to be broken. (So - I posted four and it doesn't matter because my quotes are a little cliche and you won't need time to appreciate them. They either work for you or they don't.)

Here is something a little less cliche:

"Be the change you want the world to be." Ghandi

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Sir Winston Churchill.


It is so easy not to try.
But it is so much better to try. And to learn from it.

Sucess is not a result of spontanious combustion, you have to set your self on fire.
-unknown

Too many people expect to be sucessful without putting the work into it. I have found this one puts it in to perspective for people.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us "universe", a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein

“Our thinking and our behaviour are always in anticipation of a response. It is therefore fear-based.” - Deepak Chopra

If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut. - Albert Einstein

My sister wanted to be an actress, but she never made it. She does live in a trailer. She got half way. She's an actress, she just never gets called to the set.

Hmm..I guess that isn't really one to live by..Maybe this one?

Mean people suck. I read it on a bumper stick and I like it. The only thing by posting it is that I am stooping to the level of a mean person. Oh, well, whatever.

"If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well."


- Martin Luther King, Jr.


I took care of the precious offspring (because I loved to work with kids and it shows!) of some very affluent people and only one couple ever treated me like a valuable human being! Goes to show you how much the kids mattered if the parents are willing to berate and seriously underpay the person their kids rely on and adore! I also cleaned houses and offices to pay for my sons future in music (which he passionately wanted and excells in). I was looked down upon by other school parents who's husbands paid for lessons etc in their family! I enjoyed cleaning even though I also enjoy work in much more intellectually challenging, respected fields. It keeps me in shape and allows me to work alone following my own direction as long as the results are there!(they are) The pay is incredible because my employers overestimate how degrading the work is ... usually not because they honour it's pure value and my love of a job enjoyed and well done!

That is the reason I love this quote and live by it!
