Well, I think I'll go first with the one I already use in my profile.

“I have often regretted my speech, but never my silence.”

and will add one more

"It's pride that changed angels into devils, it's humility that makes men as angels."

... your turn,,, thanks!

A few of my favorite quotes " We may not have it all together, but together we have it all."

"Living a full life is not determined by how long you live, but my how (well) you live."

"I asked God for all things, that I might enjoy life, He gave me life, that I might enjoy all things"

" Never look down on a person, unless you are picking them up"

"True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less."
.
.
"Learn from the mistakes of others, You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself."



"Never look down on a person, unless you are picking them up"
I wish everyone can always remember this one! Thank you for sharing it!

Hmm, I've seen the "post-it" on your computer, and I'm pretty sure it says:

I have a picture above my desk of Babe Ruth, with a quote of his that says: "Never let the fear of striking out get in your way."
I personally like Einstein quotes like:
"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."
"A person who never mad a mistake never tried anything new."
"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."

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

"The things you own, end up owning you."

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." -George Orwell

"Most people get ahead during the time that others waste." -Henry Ford

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." -T.S. Eliot

"Attacking is the only secret, dare and the world yields, or if it beats you sometimes, dare it again and you will succeed."

"An optimist is one who sees opportunity in every difficulty, A pessimist is one who sees difficulty in every opportunity."

Heard this in church this morning:

"Too often we worship our work, work at our play and play at our worship." --Chuck Swindoll
