Collecting Quotes

I love quotes and have collected them for years.  Someday I hope to compile my favorites into some type of journal or book for my grandkids.  Since nothing much is going on in my little world, I thought I would share some of these quotes and hope you enjoy them (and the meanings behind them) as much as I do.....
We make a living by what we get,
but we make a LIFE by what we GIVE.
*Winston Churchill

Every day take note of an exquisite moment.

Life may not be the party we hoped for,
but while we are here we might as well dance.

To love a person is to learn their song
and sing it to them when they have forgotten.

The best and most beautiful things
in this world
cannot be seen or even heard, but
must be felt with the heart.
*Helen Keller

Every job is a self-portrait
of the person who does it.
Autograph your work with excellence.

God did not promise days without pain,
laughter without sorrow,
nor sun without rain.
But He did promise strength for the day,
comfort for the tears,
and light for the way.

Thirty years from now it won't matter
what shoes you wore, how your hair looked,
or the jeans you bought.
What will matter is
what you learned
and how you used it.

Wishing all my friends a wonderful and contented weekend filled with special moments.

*Note:  all the pictures are mine except the waterfall.  I'm still learning with
my new camera!

2nd Note:  Katie over at has the cutest cupcake apron that she's giving away.  Don't go there...I want to win!

also has a great giveaway going on...CSN gift card!  I never seem to win those but I keep trying!
