One of my favorite quotes I use quite often. I tell it to people who worry way too much over things that they have no control over. "Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but gets you no where!" - Author Unknown Its so true! I used to be a bad worry wart about my hubby being laid off, which it still could happen cause there isn't enough work at his job right now but I figured that if I worry about it I will only stress myself out! What are some of your favorite quotes?

There are so many that it is hard for me to pick. "Live and let live" is a good one. The first saying I remember hearing is " Do unto others what you would have done to yourself." I am often quoting this one to my children. " Pratice what you preach" is a great one as well. I am always using different quotes when I speak to my children.

Practice what you preach is a good one. I know so many people that don't and it makes me so sick!!!

Oh I really love quotes, I have a book full of them. So I can't pick a favorite cause i have too many but I can tell you a few I like. Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met. When tears are on the outside healing is on the inside Faults are thick when love is thin No smile is so beautiful as the one that struggles through tears Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened What's better? A lie that draws a smile or the truth that draws tear? Love is sitting together in the middle of the bench when there is plenty of room on either side. If you judge people you have no time to love them Judge me all you want just keep the verdict to yourself Speak when your angry and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret If one has truly lost hope, one would not be on hand to say so A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart A true friend is someone who is there for you when he'd rather be anywhere else. There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it. Oh, I could go on and on but I'll stop now..lol
