    Do you have a favorite quote?

    Mine is by Martin Luther King Jr.  It goes like this...“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

    An old friend of mine would say "you are not fat unless your stomach sticks out further then your breasts" keep in mind my friend is a man. So as a woman I guess we can get by with it easier depending on what bra we use.  Hey that could be a hub...

    Two of my hundreds of favorites: "He (or she) who laughs . . . lasts!"   and  Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
