Favorite Quotes

I collect quotes in a journal. To pick my favorite is almost impossible. So I just chose a few to put on today’s post!

“Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her eyes, In every gesture dignity and love.” Melton

“Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.” unknown

“But dear me, let us be elegant or die.” From Little Women

“Science without religion is lame, Religion without science is blind.” Albert Einstein

“Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.” P.J. O’Rourke

“Don’t borrow trouble.” from Jamaica

About places:

“… a tumbleweed-tossed West Texas town so flat you could stand on a cow chip and see New Mexico.” Ron Hall

“It’s an everybody – knows- your- business place where schoolchildren dream of traveling to exotic places like Lubbock or Abilene.” Ron Hall

“Oklahoma is a flat place where you can see a long way. Today, there’s not a cloud between Canada and the Gulf of Mexico so you can see really far. Today’s the kind of day you can stand in a pick-up bed facing West and see yesterday going away. Then you can look over your shoulder and see tomorrow coming.” Joe Hornsby

  1. Good ones. I still think one of my favorites is that one that goes, "…I never could stand a skinny woman." Can't even remember the book but I certainly remember the quote. Ha!
