Someone made the remark recently that I have a quote for every situation. That’s not true, because some events or situations simply leave me speechless. But, I do have a tendency to remember quotes. Unfortunately, I also have difficulty remembering who said them :)
From time to time I’ll be sharing some of my favorite quotes, and hopefully will be able to give credit to the proper person for them.
“Act like you got some raising.” -- Isn’t that just one of the most southern phrases you've ever heard? I have no clue who was the first person to use this phrase, but I can tell you that my grandmother said this to me often. Now I say it to my children, and I imagine someday they’ll say it to their children.
“It is no sin to attempt and fail. The only sin is not to make the attempt.” -- Suellen Fried
“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” -- Jimmy Dean
If you have a favorite quote, I’d love to hear it!
