“Quotes I came across..”

Clearing out some of my  dining table space where I write I came across some quotes I have “collected” over time and seem to have forgotten to put in my Quotes/Poems etc… page.  So I decided to post a few here before I transfer them to my page.

After reading “15 Powerful lessons Learned from Life,” it  can do that to you.  Here are a few..

“Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”       – by Allan K Chalmers

“If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light.  Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.”     – by Glenn Clark

“In every person who comes near you, look for what is good and strong; honour that; try to imitate it, and your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes.”     – John Ruskin

“Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain.  An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.”       -by Harold B Melchart

“Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations, I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”     -by Louisa May Alcott.

    I love these quotes Diane.When my daughter was travelling on your side of the world I emailed her quotes everyday to get her to think before she did anything (worried mum) If I had had your blog then I wouldn’t have had to hunt for quotes.

  4. Great Post! I especially like the one from Louisa May Alcott 🙂

  5. Wow, and they just happened to be in a pile on the table! If I had some more space I should like to paint some of those on a wall! They create powerful images and even more powerful feelings. Danke schoen!
