Thursday Thirteen (#3)

Thirteen Quotes Courtney Likes

Yes, I'm one of those people who likes quotes,
and here are 13 (of the hundreds of) quotes I like:

1. "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– "Wow– what a trip!"

2. "It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters in the end."
-Ursula K. LeGuin

3. "Life is 10% what you make it, and 90% how you take it."

4. "Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here, we might as well dance."

5. "We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing"

6. "Those who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt the person doing it"
-Chinese proverb

7. "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -Anais Nin

8. "It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
-Abraham Lincoln

9. "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."
-Robert Frost

10. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"
-Chinese proverb

11. "The real challenge is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else" -Unknown

12. "To the world you might just be one person, but to one person you just might be the world"

13. "We spend the first two years of our children’s lives teaching them to walk and talk, and the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut up!"
