Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Ralph Waldo Emerson

All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.


Henry Ellis

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.


Mark Twain

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.


Garrison Keillor

God writes a lot of comedy... the trouble is, he's stuck with so many bad actors who don't know how to play funny.


Richard Bach

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't.


E.B. White

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.


Alice Roosevelt Longworth

I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches.

Hmmm, I'm alive this morning so my mission on Earth isn't finished.

I think I lost my instructions though somewhere.

I like Ms. Longworth's quote too. I need to start scratching.

I love the quotes...my fave of those is E.B. Whites. Exactly how I feel:)

I always say: If my eyes open in the morning, I'm on the right track...and if I'm still around to close them at night, I'm doing good.

Happy Wednesday Jeannie!
