Thursday Thirteen #60: Famous Quotes

Just thought I'd share some quotes for this week's T13...

  1. "The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice." ~ by George Eliot
  2. "That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well." ~ by Abraham Lincoln
  3. "The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score." ~ by Bill Copeland
  4. "I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again." ~ by Sylvia Plath
  5. "Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective
    and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment." ~ by Mahatma Gandhi
  6. "The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt." ~ by Bertrand Russell
  7. "Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth." ~ by Albert Einstein
  8. "The only devils in this world are those running around in our own hearts, and that is where all our battles should be fought." ~ by Mahatma Gandhi
  9. "Life is short, break the rules, forgive sooner, love with true love, laugh without control and always keep smiling. Maybe life is not the party that we were expecting, but in the mean time, we're here and we can still dance....."
  10. "Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness." by Oliver Wendell Holmes
  11. "Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand." by Mother Teresa
  12. "Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is: No Charge." A quote from A Mothers Love
  13. "There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer." by Emmet Fox

I love Ghandi's quotes. My favorite being when he was asked what he thought of Western civilization he said "It sounds like an excellent idea."

Marvelous list ;--)
I love #1 especially but they're each wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

I can hardly believe it, but I'm celebrating my 2nd Blogoversary at Small Reflections today and I'd like to invite you to visit when time permits. I've reflected on what I've learned in the past two years and created mega-collages of some of my favorite mosaics ... just because ;--)

In addition, I'm sharing an award with all visitors in my T-13 at Happily Retired Gal this week. Hope you'll drop by when time permits to snag, enjoy, and pass it along to others.

Today I'll be working on my 2nd Blogoversary post for Sacred Ruminations to publish on Friday. I can't believe I've been blogging so long already. How time flies!
Hugs and blessings,

#3 is one of the few "sportsy" quotes that actually seems a little profound to me. (okay, admittedly, usually I might not understand them, and that could be why I'm not fond of them, but this one was great!)

happy TT!

Janet said...

JO said...
