    there's a mariane williamson quote that a lot of people attribute to nelson mandela that's my favorite...it's about not playing small...but it's long and i don't have a copy handy...my other favorite one is from ted geisel aka dr. seuess and it goes "be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind"...i also love the one danielle above me posted...i'm a quote junkie...

    peace...

    My favorite is "If you can't be a good example, at least you can be a horrible warning." I can't remember who said it. That about sums me up.

    "Follow your heart, whereever love may lead you." Don't know who said it,it's on a sun catcher my mom gave me years ago.

    One I like for work... "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." Change can be good.

    Okay, it may seem cheesey, but the quote I think about most is: "Be the change you want to see in the world."

    I collect quotes, so it's hard to pick just one. But I'll go with

    There are two ways to take that quote and both of them appeal to me.

    "If you should go before me, dear, walk slowly Down the ways of death, well worn and wide, For I would want to overtake you quickly And seek the journey's ending by your side. I would be so forlorn not to descry you Down some shining high road when I came; Walk slowly, dear, and often look behind you, And pause to hear if someone calls your name."
    - Adelaide Love

    It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.
