Quotes

Ok, enough with the bad mood. I think when so many horrible things happen in the world, it gets me down. Here is something I have seen on a couple of blogs that I liked. I went here and picked 5 random quotes that spoke to me.

Bob Newhart

Don't let the bastards grind you down.
General Joseph W. Stilwell

It is a fine thing to establish one's own religion in one's heart, not to be dependent on tradition and second-hand ideals. Life will seem to you, later, not a lesser, but a greater thing.
D. H. Lawrence

Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out in the ocean.
Christopher Reeve

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.
Ben Stein

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
Harry S Truman
oops, that's 6. Oh well.
I am also participating in Lisa's Pay it forward challenge. I am excited! If you want to play, leave me a comment. I'll pick 3 randomly. (at least 3 people read this, right?)
