    "Living in a vacuum sucks" - Adrienne Gusoff

    "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter" - E.E.Cummings
    Those are good quotes Lu but they need to be much longer I'm afraid as we have a lot of real estate to cover over our banners.

    I think we should start focusing on inspirational phrases with at least 15 or 20 words in them, the longer the better.

    Re: Inspirational Quotes

    I remember you mentioning that before, Duke, but I thought they were good quotes anyway.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    whos getting the better of the deal.

    When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.~Albert Einstein

    --------------------

    Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has a purpose.
    ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

    --------------------

    Where there is great love there are always miracles.
    ~Willa Cather

    --------------------

    This is the beginning of a new day,
    I can waste it or use it for good.
    What I do today is important,
    I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

    "Hope" is the thing with feathers
    that perches in the soul,
    and sings the tune without the words,
    and never stops at all.

    The pleasantest things in the world
    are pleasant thoughts:
    and the great art of life is to have
    as many of them as possible.

    Re: Inspirational Quotes

    I've been keeping a list of my favorite quotes about family. Thought I would share:

    "Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children." - William Makepeace Thackeray

    "Any fool can be a Father, but it takes a real man to be a Daddy!" - Philip Whitmore Snr

    "Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children." - Sam Levenson

    You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back. - William D. Tammeus

    Families are about love overcoming emotional torture. - Matt Groening

    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. - Dr. Seuss

    "You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." - Desmond Tutu

    "By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong. - Charles Wadsworth

    I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection. - Sigmund Freud

    You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. - Dr. Seuss

    "It is a wise father that knows his own child." - William Shakespeare

    "Family: A social unit where the father is concerned with parking space, the children with outer space, and the mother with closet space." - Evan Esar

    Whatever they grow up to be, they are still our children, and the one most important of all the things we can give to them is unconditional love. Not a love that depends on anything at all except that they are our children. - Rosaleen Dickson

    The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. - Theodore Hesburgh

    "The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together." - Erma Bombeck

    "All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his." - Oscar Wilde

    Ah, I'm in my element with this

    My play was a complete success. It was the audience that was a failure.

    Keep some souvenirs of your past, or how will you ever prove it wasn't all a dream?

    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and call whatever you hit the target

    If I had more skill in what I'm attempting, I wouldn't need so much courage

    All by Ashleigh Brilliant. there are lots more by him, but are under 15 words and I don't want this post to be too long. I have many more, but I'll have to go looking for where I wrote them down. Hope you find heaps, because I love reading them

    Always remember to be happy because you never know who's falling in love with your smile.
    ~ Author Unknown

    If you would like to spoil the day for a grouch, give him a smile.
    ~Author Unknown

    Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure there are no smiles available.
    ~Jim Beggs

    You're never fully dressed without a smile.
    ~ Martin Charnin

    I live by this credo: Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to laugh about if you try hard enough.
    ~ Red Skelton (sure was a Great man!)

    It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body... the heart.
    ~ Author Unknown

    Laughter is an instant vacation.
    ~ Milton Berle

    Seven days without laughter makes one weak.
    ~ Mort Walker

    they need to be much longer I'm afraid as we have a lot of real estate to cover over our banners.

    Duke, I know some of these are too short, but I like them anyway.

    Not intended for anything other than entertainment purposes only....these are some of my favorites...I know...go figure.


    Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. ~Henry David Thoreau

    An angler is a man who spends rainy days sitting around on the muddy banks of rivers doing nothing because his wife won't let him do it at home. ~Author Unknown

    Calling fishing a hobby is like calling brain surgery a job. ~Paul Schullery

    Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers. ~Herbert Hoover

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day. ~Author Unknown


    Gone fishin', be back at dark-thirty! ~Author Unknown

    I'm so much cooler online...

    There is no kill switch for awesome.
