Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Satchel Paige

Leo Tolstoy
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.


Mother Teresa
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.


Robert Service

Marc Chagall
If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.


Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

Iggyism:

If Queenie Jeanie creates cards from the heart, nearly everything works; and no one ever gets one of her cards without feeling better and happier.

Hope your shoes are free of grains of sand and you make weather with brilliant blue skys, puffy white clouds. :)
