Favorite Things Friday: Quotes

"The next best thing to being clever

is being able to quote someone who is."

Mary Pettibone Poole

I'm a nut for quotes/quotations. I think my love affair with them began when I was a teenager, but for as long as I can remember, I've always loved words. I love Shakes-peare, Jane Austen and other wordsmiths. I have a love of L.M Montgomery's work and the way she paints pictures with her words.  Yes, I was an English major in college -- how did you guess? I even married a technical writer.  There's no hope for me. Having a blog where I can share a quote at least once a week is actually a relief for me. LOL

Quotation Marks from TJ Maxx 
You can bet I snapped these up when I saw them at at TJ Maxx! Can you just see a rotating display of quotations in a cute frame between these babies? Love it!

Leave me a comment sharing your one of your favorite quotes. (Feed my addiction.) ;-)

I leave you with ...

Those little quotation stand-thingy’s are just TOO cute - and perfect for you!

As we've discussed, I'm right there with you on loving quotes. In fact, I used to do an email thing for subscribers called, "The Almost-Daily Motivational Quote." It was fun and, like you said, fed my addiction!

Here's one of my favorites, although I have many...

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." ~ Mary Anne Radmacher

Have a great weekend, Wendy!

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away

Love the fact that your kitty's eyes seem to coordinate with the blue of the quotation marks!

Cute idea about the daily quotes between them. Very clever.

After the loooooooong bit of advice I left under the last thread on your blog, you might think this quote relates to me...

"Everyone is entitled to my opinion."

I want it in needlepoint! ;-)

Oh silly me, I just mixed up the posts I was commenting on and left one of my favorite quotes on a different post. Well, I like this quote too. And those are so cute! I wish I had a TJ Maxx nearby!
