My Favorite Quotes

Posted April 25, 2007 8:43 a.m. EDT

I like to start each day with an interesting quote. It can be inspirational, humorous or thought provoking.

I keep a list of quotes I like on my computer. Here are three of my recent favorites.

What about you? What is your favorite quote.

“You’re so much more intelligent when you wake up in the morning hungry, wet and cold.” (A.B. Coleman who donated Merchant’s Millpond to NC for a state park.

“Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.” (author unknown)

“To be truly content, we must be attuned to the influences of nature. We must know the sunrises and sunsets, starry nights and full moons, must hear the sounds of rushing streams and singing birds, and thrill to the splendor of the changing seasons. Those who live with the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never quite alone, or bored, or weary of life. As I thought about these things in the fading sunset, I began to understand why so many people have come under the spell and mystique of the mountain." (Harry Ellis)
