When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

What is your favorite quote?

I am going to be getting back into some calligraphy and hand lettering in the
coming weeks and I need your help...

What is your favorite quote?


  1. I have a quote that I have always liked:

    People of integrity expect to be believed and when they're not, they let time prove them right.

    Happy Thanksgiving

  2. One of my favorite quotes is "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." -Winston Churchill

  3. "There are two things we should bequeath our children: one is roots, the other, wings."

    I also love "The days are long but the years are short." That's gotten me through some long days!

  4. "Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must, but be gracious if it kills you." Elsie de Wolfe

  5. Live Passionately, hold nothing back" Leigh Standly

    Hello from PEAR & French Picnic!

  6. Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I was whining to my mom about a work-related problem, and she said, "Illegitimi non carborundum." Which, I guess, means: don't let the you-know-whats grind you down.

    Wish I could think of something more upbeat!

  7. This quote is part of my blog title and I loved it so much!

    "Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love. ~Mildred B. Vermont"

    Because of this quote, I quit my job to care for my baby boy and has been a SAHM for 5 mths now.

    Stopping by from SITS & Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. "The world you might be one person, but to one person, you might be the world"

    Just found you on SITS and thought I would say hello! Happy Thanksgiving!

    My personal blog:

    If you are ever interested in a new blog design, I would love to work with you!

  9. I actually have two:
    Age is mind over matter--If you don't mind, it doesn't matter!

    Growing old is mandatory, Growing up is optional.

    Visiting from SITS. Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. I just ran across this quote today and I just love it.
    "Gratitude is noticing the extraordinary in the ordinary.
    And then taking the nanosecond to feel it." (K.K. Kaplan)

    Stopped by from SITS to say hi and welcome.

  11. There's a quote I came up with that I use on my blog that I really like because it holds so much truth for me. I don't know about it being my favorite, but I'll share it:

    The beauty in misguidance is acquiring the ability to pave your own path.

  12. This is one of my favorites: “But love is the final reality; and anyone who does not understand this, be he a writer or sage, is a man flawed in wisdom.” (Sheldon Vanauken, A Severe Mercy)

    It might be a little too long for your purposes though.

    Have fun!


  13. I've found this one to be most true...

    "The cure for anything is salt water -
    sweat, tears or the sea."

    ~ Isak Dinesen

    It reminds me of how to come "home."

  14. “If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”
