I had no shoes and complained, until I met a man who had no feet.

There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Sharon, Thanks for the quotes.  I happen to love Lucille Ball's quote about "Luck."  I happen to believe she's right too!

Hi Kristin-I am glad it helped your week my friend. May it a wonderful one. <SMILE>

Hi Ann-I really liked that one myself. I had a great day but a long one. Been on the go since 5:30 this morning and just got home. The sun was shining here too and probably reached 58 here as well. Thank you for the visit. ENJOY your week. <SMILE>

Hi Carole-I like that and had never heard it before. I think she is right too. There is an acronymn for LUCK which is LABORING UNDER CORRECT KNOWLEDGE. Have a blessed week my friend. <SMILE>

Bertrand Russell's quote could be modified thusly: "Do not fear to be progressive or liberal in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once progressive or liberal." It's good to remember that Jesus Christ was crucified for being eccentric, progressive, and liberal. He'd probably be assassinated by some right-wing conservative if he lived today.
