this, that and the other....

Saturday, the last Saturday of 2008.

Things on my list today: make Jamaican Banana Bread, visit with my favorite sister-in-law and her family, who are in from Chicago, go to Kohl's with her & probably other stores, make a few crafts with my niece, watch the wicked and unusual thunder and lightening storm, nuke my second cup of coffee, play a few games of hard-core euchre, eat way to much food, and giggle.

I'm jumping subjects here...much like I do in real life conversation... do you ever have any favorite quotes that echo in your head? Wisdom that swirls around your mind? I have a few.....

from my mom: "it's all in where your heart is"

from my friend Rhonda: "it takes more energy to be lazy then productive"

from my dear, dear dad (also my best friend) who passed away: "you won't have any friends if you're negative all the time"

from my cousin: "you need to try a little harder" (this was told to me by her when we were talking about aging.)

from my dear Aunt Janet: "don't burn your bridges."

and one that I hesitate posting...because I don't want you to think "I" would ever, ever swear... gasp! But, we're all adults, right? here goes: "be careful of the toes you step on today, they may be attached to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow."

so, what are some of your favorite quotes? I'm fishing for comments...so go ahead and share yours!

These are the quotes I have on my facebook page.

"I don't unwind! I just keep going. If I ever unwound, I might not get wound again!" - Janet Evanovich

"Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up." - Batman Begins

"It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me." - Batman Begins

"Babe." - Carlos Manoso to Stephanie Plum

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. " - Henry Tilney (Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen)

... it is very well worth while to be tormented for two or three years of one's life, for the sake of being able to read all the rest of it.
- Henry Tilney (Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen)

One of my favorite quotes is "It's not the destination that matters, it's the journey." I'm not sure who said it or if I'm even remembering it correctly, but it inspires me to make each day count.
