"The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotations."                                                                                                                                                                                                          Benjamin Disraeli

 I agree.  So if you see something here you like, share it.  Someone much wiser than I will ever be said it. If you have a quote that has made a difference in your life, please send it when you sign the guestbook.  If it helped you, it will most likely help someone else. Here are some that people have sent to me.  You can see they run the gamut from solemn wisdom to witty and fun.  I cherish them and appreciate the fact that people thought enough of me to send them.  If some are not signed, it's because I respect their privacy.

 "Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says..."Oh shit...she's awake."      Christie Craig sent me this and I cherish it.  Just as I cherish Christie and her writing partner Faye Hughes.  Talk about   talent...
