Quote It! Saturday
This blog is, of course, devoted to quotes. But Freda's Voice has a wonderful meme called Quote It! that I cannot resist participating in. You can post as many quotes as you like. To join in, hop on over to Freda's place!
Here is my weekly offering:
Myths can be painful when they explode in your face.
Wycliffe & the Redhead (p. 35)
~W. J. Burley
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get one, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.
...Imagination took the reins and Reason, slow-paced, though sure-footed, was unequal to a race with so eccentric and flighty a companion.
The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no tickertape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for ther are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique tallents. someone who will live a happier life merely because we took time to share what we had to give.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.
