Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind ~ Dr. Seuss
Probably not the best quote saying were writers here at Hubpages, but being an arty type myself:
"Good Artists copy, great Artists Steal!"-Pablo Picasso
good posts - here is another one...
The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work ~ Mark Twain
I have to find my other ones but here is one of mine:
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." -Eleanor Roosevelt
When I was a kid my girlfriend's mother had taped a quote up in her kitchen, and it just really impressed me at the time. For some reason, I tend not to be able to remember quotes; and I'm not sure this is really my "favorite", but it's the only one that impressed me enough to remember it:
"Small minds talk about people. Average minds talk about things. Great minds talk about ideas." Eleanor Roosevelt
(Maybe because, as a ten-year-old girl, I was surrounded by lots of other girls who were always talking about people, this quote had impact on me.)
Reach for the stars. If you don't reach them you'll still end up pretty high.
One I need to keep reminding myself..it's more like a poem though but here it is:
Don't quit when
the tide is lowest,
For it's just about
Don't quit over doubts
For there's something
you may learn.
Don't quit when
the night is darkest,
For it's just a while
Don't quit when you've
run the farthest
For the race is almost won.
Don't quit when
the hill is steepest,
For your goal is
Don't quit, for you're
not a failure
Until you fail to try.
by Jill Wolf

What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed?
And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven
and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower?
And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand?
Ah, what then?
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
There is no knowledge that is not power.
For a laugh i like" I'm a schizophrenic and so am I" cracks me up every time.
"Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world."

Everything has been figured out, except how to live...
Don't spend today what you make tomorrow
Spend tomorrow what you make today

"The most wasted day of all is that on which we have not laughed."--Sebastien Roch Nicolas Chamfort (1741-1778)
Can't remember who wrote it

a better man than you is always on the way".
