I really enjoy inspiring quotes like these. I do, however, disagree with Leo Tolstoy; I am constantly striving to change myself for the better, as I think others also do - for my kids, my husband, myself, etc. I think it might have been better if he had said, Before people think of changing the world, they should think of starting the change with themselves.

Those are good quotes. If more people kept them in mind the world would be a different (and better) place! Happy Wednesday!

At first I thought the first quote was from Lance Bass and I was all "wha?"

TMM---you are too funny!

I love the Maya Angelou quote. Although it doesn't always work. For instance, I don't like the violence and drunk drivers killing/injuring people, but I can't stop it completely. So am I just supposed to accept it? Because I wont.

OK, I'm weird...blame my hormones...and tax day....and the fact that I have to pay taxes on my stimulus check from last year (that I never got) or that taxes are higher this year. It sucks and I hate it.

Income tax is supposed to be VOLUNTARY. Did you know this? This country is so screwed up!

Damn Socialists!!

Oh, sorry...I do love your quotes every week. forgive my rant. I am in a mood! LOL

My middle chicklet has always had MAJOR trouble with standardized testing - even though he makes A's all year long.

We wrote this same Lance Armstrong quote on his mirror during testing week. Just to let him know WE KNOW how hard he works throughout the year.

That last one was true today, for sure! Everyday people can't change how government is spending our money, so they've changed their attitude. They're pissed and they aren't going to take it any more!
