Favorite Quotes

I've been researching clever, moving, motivational and witty quotes off the internet for my 365 project.  I'm including a quote for each week, so I'll need 52, of course.  I am hoping that YOU can help me by contributing your favorite quote from a person who may be famous or not so much.  The one in the above photo is from Martha Washington.  It says, "The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions not our circumstances." I think that one reflects well with the economy.   Here are a few others that I like too....

The Kindergarten Teacher in me loves this one... "Today You are You, that is Truer than True.  There is no one alive who is Youer than You."  ---Dr. Seuss

"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing."  ---Phyllis Diller  
(This one explains my household.)


"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."  ---Maya Angelou

I can't wait to hear yours!  Please post under comments.
