Words To Live By

I keep updating this page with gems I find around. Enjoy! :)

Life

EVERY choice you make , has an end result. ~ Zig Ziglar

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ~ Marianne Williamson

Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down. Charles Kettering

It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.
— W. Somerset Maugham

“Five frogs are sitting on a log. Four decide to jump off. How many are left?

There are still five – because there’s a difference between deciding and doing.”

– “Five Frogs On A Log” by Mark L Feldman & Michael F Spratt

In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins; not through strength, but through persistence. — Author Unknown

Whether you think you can, or you think you cant, you are right – Henry Ford

When life puts you in tough situations, don’t say why me, say try me

“Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well”

Being defeated is only a temporary condition; giving up is what makes it permanent.
— Marilyn vos Savant

If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, then you can be sure that the water bill is higher there too!

Geeky

“I’d like to change the world but they wont give me the source code.”

“Is your name Google, because you have everything am looking for”

Marriage

“… Love your husband, but do not wrap yourself up in your husband. Always remember that you were a person before him, you should do your best to stay a person while married to him.” ~ deblgus

“In a marriage , you either grow up , or grow apart” ~ agrownupmarriage.com

“Try to outdo each other in kindness.” ~ tjmac66

The only reason why you would nag someone is if you want to change them. – Chris Hart

Women

Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed.  If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.”  They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”  ~Clare Boothe Luce

 

Why do people say “grow some balls”? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding”~ Betty White

 

Satirical/Funny

If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married. – Katharine Hepburn

I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life – Rita Rudner
