Quotes of the Day

Thursday, January 24, 2013

You can stand tall without standing on someone. You can be a victor without having victims.
~Harriet Woods

The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love and to let it come in.
~Morrie Schwartz

Success doesn't come to you. You go to it.
~Marva Collins

I found these three and didn't know which to choose so I decided to blog and share them all with you. I think they tend to go together.

I am a tall gal that was told, almost daily, to stand tall and be proud of your height. This is what I have done and can continue to do without standing on another. No person deserves to be put down at any time. Victory can be claimed with a smile and a thank you. Another quote comes to mind here. You can catch more flies with honey rather than vinegar.

This is where love comes into the picture. It doesn't have to be the type of love that we consider to be between partners but rather the love of oneself and others you meet. I can say I have many friends here that I do love! The support you give to me and others is uplifting! You care and show it to others.

Do you want to succeed? I certainly do and I will do it with my friends that I am not going to walk on just to be tall and with all the love I can find to share with them!! Success isn't about getting to the top of the ladder. Success is about how you feel & care about yourself, meeting the goals you establish for yourself then setting new goals that are attainable.
Be proud!! Stand tall!! Share your love of life and you can/will be victorious!!

God bless you all and I thank you for all your comments you share with me!

    emoticon Love the quotes. Although they are all great I think the 1st one is my favorite because so many people think that the only way they can get ahead is by stepping on everyone to get to the top --- and they do. I like 'Harriet Woods' way instead!
