Quotes can’t change your circumstances. They can’t make your life instantly better. However, happy quotes can change your thinking. They can make you think with a more positive attitude going forward. They give you a bit of happiness, if only for the few moments it takes to read them.

    I forget who said it, but my absolute favorite quote is:

    “Man’s greatest achievement is not in never falling, but getting back up each time we do fall.”

    I had this written on my bedroom wall in high school.

    Since my first child was born we’ve read a lot of Winnie the Pooh books and that little bear is filled with wisdom! lol. I read one to her a couple of nights ago and this quote made me smile “If ever there is a tommorow when we’re not together…there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you.” One that makes me think and that I have to remind myself of on pretty much a weekly basis is “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.”-Eleanor Roosevelt.
    I admit I cringed a little when I read quote #4. My sister in law frequently lashes out at others and when she feels a bit guitly about it, instead of appologizing she quotes that. Whenever she does I think of quote #10.

    Heard this on the radio yesterday:

    Never tell a zombie he looks like death warmed over.

    So silly I just had to smile.
