Yeah...What He Said!

Once, not that long ago, a friend of mine sent me as a gift, a booklet full of some of her favorite quotes. It was (and still is) one of my favorite gifts ever because it was completely, and I mean completely hand made. Right down to the paper! It was exquisitely well done. Ever since then I've been compiling a list of quotes that I like. Some are profound, some are funny, some are just different. Here are some of my faves:

"Our lives begin to end when we become silent about things that matter."
~Martin Luther King Jr.~

"That best portion of a good man's life, His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love." ~William Wordsworth~

"There is no remedy for love but to love more."
~Henry David Thoreau~

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." ~Anais Nin~

"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog it's too dark to read."
~Groucho Marx~

"In the end, we will not remember the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
~Martin Luther King Jr.~

"Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love."
~Charles M. Schulz~

"You can not be mad at someone who makes you laugh-it's as simple as that."
~Jay Leno~

And this one just cracks me up so I'll end with this....

"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it."
~Groucho Marx~
