I’m addicted to words

by Kathryn Jane

I love words, and I’m constantly amazed when they’re put together so perfectly an inspirational quote is born… therein lies my addiction.

I can spend hours pouring through quotes, drinking in meaning, and occasionally making memes to share.

It’s a weakness.

Today I’ll share a few of them with you, just because I think it’s a great way to start off a new year (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it) .

“Be the change you wish to see.” Unknown

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” ~ Dr. Seuss

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.” ~ Edith Wharton

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me.”~  Erma Bombeck

“If not us, who?  If not now, when?” ~ John F. Kennedy

“Live as though life was created for you.” ~ Maya Angelou

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~ Maya Angelou

“Do the Best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” ~ Maya Angelou

“Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ‘Holy shit…what a ride!” ~ Hunter S. Thompson

“You are so much more than your mistakes.” ~ Bryant McGill

The road of indecision is paved with flat squirrels. ~ Unknown

    I love your quotes. Mine comes from the movie “Strictly Ballroom” – “A life lived in fear is a life half-lived.”

    After all, if one doesn’t try, how will one know?
