THIS WEEK’S BAR QUTOES – (from 08-08-08)


Thinking-person quotations are these.  I think!  But enjoy.  And don’t forget to enjoy POET’S Day every Friday, too!  It’s a rare event that only we sagaciously thinking people can enjoy, you know.  ;–)

THIS WEEK’S BAR QUTOES – (from 08-08-08)
Early to bed, early to rise, advertise, advertise, advertise!
–Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds
Do what you love, love what you do, and deliver more than you promise.
–Harvey Mackay
Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can?  I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something I have done.
–A. E. Hotchner
How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.
–Henry David Thoreau
The answer is in thy heart. Thee can always hear it, if thee listens for it.”
–Elizabeth George Speare, “The Witch of Blackbird Pond”
Loss leaves us empty – but learn not to close your heart and mind in grief. Allow life to replenish you. When sorrow comes it seems impossible – but new joys wait to fill the void.
–Pam Brown
The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones.
–John Wooden
So let’s all bring back the stories, the poems, the myths, and remember in the front most part of our brains that the truth is not in the facts but in the stories. Take time to tell and write the stories of our lives, stories of our hopes, stories for our children, stories of our dreams and even stories of our forgetting. Too soon we put away stories and begin to dance to the facts, and too late we learn that facts don’t endure, only stories do. –Gwynne Spencer
I was gratified to be able to answer promptly. I said I don’t know.

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.
–George Bernard Shaw
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
–Thomas Jefferson
Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
–Mark Twain
