Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Oscar Wilde

Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.

Suzanne Somers

Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.

Hannah More

Forgiveness is the economy of the heart... forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.

Mark Twain

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

Gerald Jampolsky

Forgiveness means letting go of the past.

Thomas Fuller

He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven.

good luck with the big move!!! :)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Wow. Italy. That's exciting!

AliceKay said...

Now why in the world would anyone "drop" you while you're offline?? That's just nonsense! (they would miss out on so much) :)

That's quite a list. I hope and pray things go as planned and your packing and moving will go smoothly. Take time to breathe and don't let the stress get to you if you can help it. Always believe in yourself and your abilities.

I loved those quotes. I have been told by someone who I thought was my best friend that I forgive too easily and too quickly. Maybe I do, but that's who I am.

Hang in there...Italy is getting closer and closer. :D

Big hugs to you!

Grand Pooba said...

What a good idea to re-post while you're gone! Who knows, maybe there'll be one I haven't read before!

I wish you all the luck with your move. I'm sure it's going to be stressful as hell but once you get settled, it'll all be worth it!

Freakin Italy!!!!

I still can't believe it.

I'll forgive you for leaving us hanging if you promise to come back!! Good luck and remember you can always go to the public library to use their computers and internet :)

Intense Guy said...

I will be hoping that everything goes smoothly and without a hitch.

And all that garage sale stuff gets over there before you do. :)

Take the time to enjoy the hotel's features - the pool, the spa... and any good places to eat...

The next "live" post will be in Italiano!

Maggio l'aumento della strada per incontrarlo,
Maggio il vento è sempre alla vostra parte posteriore,
maggio il lustro caldo sul vostro fronte,
maggio del sole la caduta delle pioggie morbida sui vostri campi e,
fino a che non ci incontriamo ancora,
Può la stretta del Dio voi nella cavità della sua mano...

Heatherlyn said...

That is sooo exciting!!!!

People ought not to drop you, because when you finally get everything organized in a month or so they'll be getting posts from Italy! Isn't that worth waiting for? I think so! Good luck with everything!

Regina said...

These are excellent quotes - love them!

Allyson said...

I say this with as much bloggy love as possible...I'm so glad this is your move and not mine. I simply couldn't do it again. And I am SOOOO glad it's over and behind me. But you're ready for it and while the next 3 weeks seem impossible, they will pass quickly and before you realize, you'll be unpacking boxes and taking Bella for gelato and learning how to say bathing suit in Italian!! The last 6 weeks are a total blur. But we just set our mind to it and we do it because we rock like that!! Good luck. I'll miss you but understand the absence. ;) And you won't lose me, so don't worry about that. I'll see ya on the flip side!! xoxo

Wow you are going to be super busy, I love staying in hotels! I will be patiently waiting for you to come back to the blog world and would never drop you :o) Take care girl and stay safe with all that traveling, HUGS

Mighty M said...

Great quotes - like you I am pretty quick to forgive as long as I feel like the party involved understands why I feel wronged and apologizes sincerely.

blueviolet said...

You are going to be so, so, so busy! This is most exciting from here on out!!!!

Deanna said...
