Pushing Onward..

I’ve been in a bit of a funk the last couple days and I don’t know if it is the weather, the many changes going on or the transition into another school year. Since I can’t seem to finish my current read anytime soon nor pick a new one up; I decided to share some quotes. I love quotes and what better time to look through my collection, than a Friday evening with a glass of wine in hand and the unknown swirling around.

Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up and with whom, it always ends up just the way it should be. Your mistakes make you who you are. You learn and grow with each choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel always. Be you, and be okay with it.” -Hollie Seals

"A good friend is hard to find, hard to lose, and impossible to forget..."

"Try to be governed by your loves and not your hates and find goodness and beauty where you can."

"No lapse of time or distance of place can lessen the friendship of those who are truly persuaded of each other's worth."

"How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to."

Good-byes make you think, they make you realize what you've had, what you've lost, and what you've taken for granted.

*There are moments in life when you really miss someone so much that you want to pick them up from your dreams and hug them for real*

To laugh often and much;To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.This is to have succeeded

It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.Francois De La Rochefoucauld

Silence does not always mark wisdom.Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. Henry David Thoreau

What are some of your favorite quotes? Any nice plans for this dreary weekend?

I also love quotes. Some of my favorites are oldies but goodies, like "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" and "Be who you are say what you think because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind"

And lastly, I think there is a quote that goes: "When someone shows you who they are, believe them."

No real big plans for the weekend. Celebrating a friend's husband's birthday tomorrow and that's it. I just got done watching Gran Torino & it was AMAZING.

What a great collection of quotes! I think I like the Thoreau one the best - just live for what's happening right now. My plans - well I worked yesterday. Today I have many reviews to write and posts to read. It's pouring rain, so it's a good day to be inside. But I am dragging my heels on writing - not that I didn't love the books, I just want to start one I have been coveting all week and was saving for my day off!

Love quotes and a love a glass of wine :) I especially like the first one about taking chances. Sometimes being too careful gets you nowhere.
