Quotable Sunday

Today is Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. We list our favorite quotes on Quotable Sunday and visit the blogs of all those who are participating.  As a result of Kayne West’s rude behavior at the Video Music Awards (VMA), I decided to focus on Forgiveness Quotes today. 

Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast. ~Marlene Dietrich

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. ~Mahatma Gandhi

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. ~William Arthur Ward

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. ~Paul Boese

Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge. ~Isaac Friedmann

Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself. ~Harriet Nelson

There’s no point in burying a hatchet if you’re going to put up a marker on the site. ~Sydney Harris

Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much. ~Oscar Wilde

We must all ask for forgiveness at some point in our life. Lets hope that Kanye West sees that there is a time and place for everything, and understands that freedom of speech shouldn’t be at the expensive of others.

I hope you enjoyed my quotes this week. I have two favorites this week, the first and the last quotes. Leave us a comment and let us know your favorite quote. Feel free to leave your take on Kenye West and his behavior at the VMA too.

Quotable Sunday

It’s Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. For those who aren’t familiar with Quotable Sunday, it’s the day we list a few of our favorite quotes. Since I’m just returning from a business trip, I decided to focus on travel. Here are a few of my favorite travel quotes:

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. ~Lin Yutang

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money. ~Susan Heller

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. ~Seneca

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes “sight-seeing.” ~Daniel J. Boorstin

What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do – especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road. ~William Least

I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them. ~Mark Twain

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime. ~Mark Twain

The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway. ~Henry Boye

It’s Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. I love Quotable Sunday, it’s the day that we share a few of our favorite quotes. I decided to share a few grandparent quotes this week. Being a grandmother has become one of my greatest roles in life. I had no idea that I could love anyone as deeply as I love my grandson. He is the joy of my life.

If nothing is going well, call your grandmother – Italian Proverb

Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting – Anoynymous
Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children. – Alex Haley

Quotable Sunday

Today is Quotable Sunday thanks to Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni. Each Sunday, we share a few of our favorite quotes. This week, I decided to focus on perseverance. I need to lose 20 pounds. I decided to take baby steps and focus on my goal 10 pounds at time. My goal is to lose 10 pounds within the next 8 weeks and I must embrace perseverance to be successful. My weight has been a struggle for me over the years, I can’t manage to get it off I love food, but I hate to exercise. My health has become a factor now, I’m borderline diabetic so it’s imperative that I start exercising regularly and get off the excess weight.

I’m scared to death of needles so that’s another incentive for me to work hard. I can’t imagine giving myself insulin shots.

Here are a few quotes for those of us who need to perserve with some endeavor:

“Consider the postage stamp; its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there.” Josh Billings

“I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” John D. Rockefeller

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful men keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” Conrad Hilton

“In order to get from what was to what will be, you must go through what is.” Anonymous

“Never give up. Never, never give up! We shall go on to the end.” Winston Churchill

My favorite quote is the first one by Josh Billings. Leave us a comment and let us know your favorite quote this week. If you would like to join us and share your quotes, visit A Daily Dose of Toni and leave the link to your blog.

Quotable Sunday

It’s Quotable Sunday. I love quotes, and I thank Toni at A Daily of Toni for creating the opportunity to share a few of my favorite quotes. This week I decided to focus on Success. I chose Success because I’ve had to make a decision regarding my mother, placing her in a Nursing Home temporarily for rehabilitation. I lost my father 10 years ago.

I’ve spent hours this week-end thinking about who I am, where I’ve been, and where I intend to go. I looked at the pictures of my beautiful daughter and grandson, my most precious possessions.  I know that my mother and father are the foundation of my Success. How else could I end up here from where I came from.  They never stopped encouraging, supporting or loving me, and that has truly been the reasons for my success. Here’s to you Mom and Dad:

No matter what accomplishments you make, somebody helped you.
Althea Gibson

If you have achieved any level of success, then pour it into someone else. Success is not success without a successor.
Jesse Jackson

Most people search high and wide for the keys to success. If they only knew, the key to their dreams lies within.
Heram Cain

I just try to be the best I can be and hope that is the best ever.
Tiger Woods

There is in this world no such force as the force of a person determined to rise. The human soul cannot be permanently chained.
W.E.B. Dubois

You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
Marian Wright Edelman

I try to do the right thing at the right time. They may just be little things, but usually they make the difference between winning and losing.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don’t do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.
Michael Jordan

The first quote by Althea Gibson and the last by Michael Jordon are my favorites. Leave us a comment and let us know your favorite Success Quote. We would also like to know who has been a major contributor to your success. Be sure to visit A Daily Dose of Toni for quotes.
