I've always loved quotes, and have quite a collection of them. I love to share one per month on my blog."I have gathered a posie of other men's flowers, and nothing but the thread that binds them is mine own" John Bartlett
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. Dr Suess

Gaelic (translation: love, loyalty, friendship), inscribed on our wedding bands
I asked God for strength, that I might achieve; I was made weak, that I might learn to humbly obey. I asked God for power, that I might have the praise of men; I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God. I asked God for all things, that I might enjoy life; I was given life, that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing I asked for, but everything I had hoped for. I am among all men, most richly blessed.
...and what does the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
In times like the present, men should utter nothing for which they would not willingly be responsible through time and in eternity. Abraham Lincoln
Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed. G.K. Chesterton
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbours, and let each new year find you a better man. Benjamin Franklin
