    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

    I love quotes.... I have a little quote booklet that I write my favorite ones in... Heres some of my favorites:

    - “Hanging onto resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head” (Dunno who)

    - "I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
    — Marilyn Monroe

    "A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left."
    — Marilyn Monroe

    "Everyone's a star and deserves the right to twinkle.- Marilyn Monroe

    Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values - (dunno who)

    and theres many more I <3!!!

    A favourite quote that I try to live by is, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

    However my favourite quote that reminds me of how cruel the world works is from the Melian dialogue in Thucydides "The History of the Peloponnesian War."

    "The strong do what they will, and the weak suffer what they must."

    Seems like an unpleasant quote to think of as a favourite, but what you have to realize is that this was spoken by the Athenians, who had just told the Melians that they were going to kill their men, sell their women and children into slavery, and repopulate the land with Athenian settlers.

    Of course Athens was destroyed at the end of the Peloponnesian war...and it never regained it's prominence amongst the Greek City states!

    This quote reminds me of the arrogance of those with power, and it reminds me that with pride comes the fall!

    Remember compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how." Mary Schmich

    1. What we do in life, echoes in eternity.
    2. It is possible to be happy in this life. And a must.
    3. What I've learned about life can be sum up in 3 words - it goes on.
    4. We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young.
    5. Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming . . . WOW !!!! What a ride!
