When Hearts listen....angels sing


I was looking through some old stuff today and came across some of my favorite quotes. I thought I'd share them on here with.....well with myself I guess. Yep, I'm feeling sorry for me....it just seems so hard to make friends on this site! Grrrr maybe it's just me, I'm going to post them anyway and then crawl in bed with my book.


By your own soul, learn to live
And if men thwart you take no heed.
If men hate you have no care.
Sing your song, dream your dream,
Hope your hope and pray your prayer.
~Parkenham Beatty~


To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way. And the high soul climbs the high way, And the low soul gropes the low: And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low, And every man decideth. The way his soul shall go.
~John Oxenham~


It takes years to build up trust, but only seconds to destroy it.
You can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes.
After that you'd better know something.
Don't compare yourself to the best others can do,
But to the best you can do.
It's not what happens to people that's important.
It's what they do about it.
Always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
You control your attitude or it controls you.
It isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
Your background and circumstances may have influenced who you are,
But you are responsible for who you become.
Even if you do the right thing for the wrong reason,
It's still the wrong thing to do.

Thanks for all the advice. I go see my doctor one week from today and I am definitley going to bring it up. Hopefully it's nothing, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. What a busy time of year! I see you make a lot of tags. I like making tags, too. I can use all my scrap pieces and they do not take that long to make.
