Thoughts for the New Year

This morning, Mrs. Linklater accidentally discovered that clicking on a person's screenname in a comment took her to their profile.  So she decided to start collecting personal quotes before she went back to bed again.  Anyway, it was something to start the new day in the new year before the bowl games get under way.  She'll add more when she has time.  Feel free to help out.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it -- this is the one in Mrs. L's profile.   

Some things are true whether you believe them or not.  

You get what you put in and people get what they deserve.  ~ Kid Rock

Beginnings are scary. endings are usually sad.
but it's the middle that counts. you need to remember that when you're at the beginning.
~ Hope Floats

When you don't know what you're talking about, it's hard to know when you're finished.  [Tommy Smothers]  


You have to get through the storm to see the rainbow.  

A "no" uttered fromdeepest conviction is better and greater than a "yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble. ~M.Gandhi~

What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~  

Live for each moment. 

The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true.
(James Branch Cabell, The Silver Stallion, 1926)

Don't feel bad about growing old;  it is a privilege denied to many.

Question Authority

We, the unwilling, led by the unqualified, have been doing the unbelievable for so long with so little that we now attempt the impossible with nothing.

No good deed goes unpunished.

What the public criticizes in you, cultivate.  It is you.  --Jean Cocteau

Illegitimi non carborundum  - Gen Vinegar Joe Stilwell

Sometimes things have to fall apart so you can build them back up the way you want them.

Boys throw stones in jest, but frogs die in earnest.

You are the perfect example of a man too lazy to fail.
-- my wife

Those who use quotes have no orginality. ~Bob Hope

Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away.  ~Elvis Presley

"Please buy my pens to support God and the deaf."    ~The deaf girl that came to the door selling pens

The longest journey in life is from head to heart.

Be kind for everyone you know is fighting a great battle.
