    Shawn how is it that you always seem to post quotes that I need to “hear” NOW? #1 and #6 – these are mine today.

    There are times when we just have to remind ourselves that if you look at the big picture and ALL that needs to be done, it can be very daunting. However, break that down into manageable tasks worked on little by little – and before you know it, that huge thing is done!

    I like number 8.
    If you sit around or work, work, work to try to have everything perfect before you start living your dream….forget about it. Just do it.

    That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly. -Thomas Paine

    So so true, in my life anyway. I’m thankful for the struggles I’ve had. If for no other reason, they’ve made me more grateful.

    Our quality of life is not measured souly by what we do in life….but more importantly why we choose how to live our life.

    These are great quotes. I especially like the one from Madeline Bridges. If everybody in the world would learn to help each other a little more the world would be a much happier place. People are too busy now days.

    Best Wishes!

    I like this quote of the Buddah, “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it, not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”—Buddah

    In other words, do your own thinking. This keeps you free of the influence of others and makes you the captain of your own ship.

    Quote No.1 “When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself. -Isak Dinesen” is reality for me. I have experienced this many time my difficult tasks are finished in no time.
    I wish you all the same to let your difficult tasks be finished in no time. But,Please do work a little at a time, & every day a little.

    Best wishes and warm regards.
