Quote of the Day – Sally Field on Self-Image

I really liked this quote. It was something that spoke to me. Mostly because I’m constantly thinking about how people perceive me and how I’m viewed in the world, sometimes too much. Sometimes I don’t care, but deep down, it affects me greatly. I was raised to sense what someone wanted me to be and…

Quote of the Day – Ursula Le Guin on Setting A New Course

I found this quote while looking for something to do with hiking, since that’s what I’m off to do today. Going to hike near Mt. St. Helens, Washington. It’s supposed to be near 100* this afternoon. That’s got me running for the hills. I know when I’ve found a good quote, because it slaps me…

Quote of the Day – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis on Happiness

When looking for quotes, this one resonated with me. It just so happens to be Jackie O’s birthday, too. Fabulous. You have to be doing something you enjoy. That is a definition of happiness: Complete use of one’s faculties along lines leading to excellence in a life affording them scope. It applies to women as…

Quote of the Day – Ernest Hemingway on …Why?

There are so many great things, tidbits, nuggets, and moments of strength in this quote. I find so much going on around my life, young ones gone too soon, old ones moving on to the next adventure, and moments sweeping by so fast that you’ve hardly a moment to recognize them. When it is in…

Quote of the Day – Hunter S. Thompson on Myths and Legends

I thought that I’ve used this quote before; I cannot believe I have not. We build people up, many time, only to tear them down. And some among us do it for sport! Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to…

Quote of the Day – Washington Irving on the Power of Words

I love the power of words and I try to choose them with great care. I can’t believe i’ve never run across this quote before. So powerful and so truthful. I think this, striking a chord with the reader, is the one thing each writer strives for. If … I can by any lucky chance,…

Quote of the Day – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on Capability

This quote really reached out to me today. Over on Twitter, my profile says that I swing for the fences, and I do, sometimes I spin around, missing the ball completely and sometimes I knock it out of the park. You keep swinging, just in case. Others will underestimate us, for although we judge ourselves…

Quote of the Day – Sam Donaldson on Self-Worth.

Today, I’d like all of us to remove negative self talk from our language. Remember to say to yourself at least once a day: “I’m worth it, I deserve this and I make a difference.” If you can’t say that to yourself, who is going to say it for you? — Just sayin’. But I…

Quote of the Day – Alfred Stieglitz on Today

Today’s quote is inspired by the World Domination Summit going on in Portland, Oregon. I’m not there but many of my friends are and I’m watching from afar. Seems like such a powerful thing, to live in the moment, and it’s maybe the hardest thing to do. Welcome to Portland WDSers! I have always been…

Quote of the Day – Judith Viorst on Friendship and Laughter

I met some new friends yesterday, or rather, I met them in person. It’s amazing to me, something so simple as connecting with others can bring so much joy to your day. Yesterday, I got to connect with people I met on the internet, yet, it felt like I’d known them for years. Fast-friendship, made…
