    Some are inspirational, some are funny, some are just plain common sense. Some are attributed to the famous, some anonymous...some are actually misquotes that someone was given credit for, and it was discovered later that they really didn't say it, or denied saying it lol .

    Post a quote or saying that has meant something to you, or that you think of when times are tough, etc. This oughta be good!

    Could even be a family thing! My grandmother used to say "This too shall pass" when she was worried or upset about something...It certainly wasn't original, but gets the job done, lol.

    Doesn't have to be what's in your signature line, but it can be if you like.

    Today I read one by Bob Hope that I really liked....


    I've always been in the right place and time. Of course, I steered myself there.
    Bob Hope

    Would really like to see which ones some of us put stock in or get laughs from...

    oh PB I enjoy this kinda stuff too, and I hope we get a lot of responses here, there are some wonderful thoughts from great thinkers out there, and some hilarious ones that have just circulated for years that we can't know who said it! I can't wait to see how this goes, and like Reload, I'll see many that I haven't thought about in years!

    Sometimes I'll just google "quotes" and read to my hearts content....while it may seem a little mindless to some, I thoroughly enjoy entertaining thoughts from the minds of others that have made their place in history.

    LOL!!! I LOVE WC FIELDS QUOTES! hahahaha he's soooo sarcastic! yet right! LOL!

    “Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind.”

    That's a great one too and Albert Einstein whom I think so much of has the following quote attributed to him....

    "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."

    When I worked, I had this in my office:
    It's hard to soar like an Eagle when flying with a bunch of turkeys.

    Cher, I have some quotes I really love written down somewhere. You wouldn't believe the notes I make while on the internet. I'll be back sometime with a few good ones, but for now, here's one of my own....and this is from experience!
