A place where I can share the quotes that I have collected (and keep collecting) over the years. I have gathered them from all sorts of sources. The "Quote of the Day" posts will always be a quote from a book and may be on any topic.

Quote It! Saturday (on Sunday)

I'm still trying to get back in the swing of my quote blog...and, being all about quotes here, I can't resist participating in Quote It! sponsored by Freda's Voice. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!

Since I'm behind and doing this on Sunday, Mother's Day, I thought I'd see what I have in my collection that might be appropriate....

~Lane Olinghouse

~Robert Brault

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness and cause peace to return to our hearts.

~Washington Irving

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.

~Theodore M Hesburgh

Parents need to fill a child's bucket of self-esteem so high that the rest of the world can't poke enough holes in it to drain it dry.

~Alvin Price
