  1. Love these!

    So glad I'm not the only one who has notebooks with quotes - although I've got my favourites in a small pocket notebook that's usually in my handbag.

    I'm going to add some of these today, particularly:

    Thanks for joining in.

  2. Awesome!!! My favorite is the Howard Roark quote!!!

  3. I love quotes too - unlike you I don't think to write them down. These are all great ones!!

  4. The one from the bible is incredibly comforting. I love it. I wish I had known it a long time ago...I knew it, but I didn't know it was from the bible. :(
    And the Ronald Reagan one is spot on! I couldn't agree more!

  5. The jackass whisperer is still my favorite. LOVE it.

  6. Love the quotes! The one that says "Don't try to win over the haters. You're not the jackass whisperer" cracks me up! That's fantastic.

  7. What a great idea to have a note card book to write them down, I should do that.
    I really like the one by Ronald Reagan and like everyone else the jackass whisperer is a great one.
    Hope the rest of 2010 and 2011 is equally inspiring.

  8. Great idea! I come across quotes all the time but never take the time to write them down and I typically forget about them. This is a great list!

  9. I love your M&M economics. Hope I added to your intake today. Enjoyed the quotes. It looks like life is treating you well in Colorado. No snow on the ground?


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
