New Blog!

Well, I did it. I finally made a blog. Now the trick is to see how often I write in it. I'll keep this first one nice and short. Over the years I've collected a few of my favorite quotes, now this list isn't a complete one. It just happens to be the ones that have made it onto my computer. Check a few of them out if you'd like.


On the trail of life, even the best hikers slip from time to time.

When you’re drowning in despair, stand up, it’s not as deep as you think it is.
Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, but today of its strength.

A diamond is just a lump of coal made good under pressure.

Failure only happens once you give up.

Love the person you are today enough to become the person you want to be tomorrow.

You can’t make a big splash without first jumping in.

Disability is only a state of mind.

Love may hurt, but not loving is torture.

Cherish the happy moments they only come so often.

Courage is getting up every morning; Bravery is getting up a different way.

The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. –Eleanor Roosevelt

You control your own destiny.

Be thankful for everything.

Happiness is not a life without pain, but rather a life in which the pain is traded for a worthy price.

If winter comes can spring be far behind?

Be kind; remember everyone is fighting a hard battle.

We can’t put our faults behind us until we face them.

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

Worry never fixes anything.

Happiness is activity.

It is better to light a candle than curse in the darkness.

A kiss without love is like a pretzel without any salt.      

Accept that some days you're the pigeon,
And some days you're the statue.

Always keep your words soft and sweet,
Just in case you have to eat them.

Always read stuff that will make you look good
Incase you die in the middle of it.
Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be
Recalled by their maker.

If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others.

Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
Because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance.
Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

The second mouse gets the cheese.

When everything's coming your way,
You're in the wrong lane.

Birthdays are good for you.
The more you have, the longer you live.

You may be only one person in the world,
But you may also be the world to one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

“One life on this earth is all that we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.” - Frederick Buechne

Hopefully I can keep this up and learn to express myself through this page. Thank you.
