Thankful Thursdays: Quick Inspirations

I'm a collector.....a quote collector that is. I collect random quotes, inspirational quotes, humorous quotes and quotes about life in general. I see quotes as more than just words on paper.

I often find I refer to my quotes when I need a little inspiration or a little jolt of motivation or little infinite wisdom. I often find myself reciting my quotes to my children.

I thought I'd share a few of my favorite quotes.

"A woman is like a tea bag - you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

"I have a simple philosophy. Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. And scratch where it itches." ~ Alice Roosevelt Longworth

"Farming looks might easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field." ~ Dwight Eisenhower

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~ Dr. Seuss

"The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it." ~ Lou Holtz

Link up and share your favorite quotes on this edition of Thankful Thursdays.

Thankful Thursdays


  1. Great posts Jill. "Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle." ~ Attributed to both T.H. Thompson and John Watson. I finished reading a new book, and she turned me onto loves of new favorite quotes.

  2. I found your blog thru the Thankful Thursday button. I've enjoyed reading your blog...but I was already hooked by the quotes. I search on line all the time for quotes. I'll even stop in a store and write a quote down that I see on a plaque or photo.
