One of my favorite quotes is: "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." Buddha Do you have one you can share?

When i aske God for Strength,He gave of Difficult situations to face.When i asked god for brain & brawn,He gave of Puzzles in life to solve.When i asked god for happiness,he showed of some unhappy people.When i asked god for wealth,He showed of how to work hard.When i asked god for favours,He showed me opportunities to work hard.When i asked God for peace,He showed of how to help others.God gave me nothing i wanted,He gave me everything i needed. -Swami Vivekananda

I really like that one. It is so true! I have many quotes I like, but have gone totally blank for the moment, darn it! I will have to come back and post again later, when my "senior moment" has passed.

I don't know who said this one, but... "Even the smallest person can make the biggest difference in the world" Don't know who, but it is so true in my case!

here are many that I like...one I'm using on anoother site is: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world...Ghandi" Today I found this one that I can truly relate to and find it has lots of meaning to me. Today I found this one that I can truly relate to and find it has lots of meaning to me.: "Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome."

I just made this quote, " If you want to make things happen, make it now." and " Find meaning in what you are doing". I made these because you know sometimes you become bored with your life and you want to change but did not give initiative to make it happen. So now, i crossed my fingers on that quote i made, and as for now i am progressing. Whenever i will be lame on doing things for my future, that quote will download on my brain to keep me working.

i like the quote 'seize the day'. I am not sure where it is from (but it is a saying in latin) but the message is so clear...seize today because there will never be another day just like this one!

There are so many I really like, and I like the one's posted too....very nice. Here's one of my favorites because it makes me feel better, lol! "A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing." George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Kinda fits me because I've made so many.....take care!
