Communities I Manage (Stuff I Like)

Quotes I Like:

"You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights" ~ Maya Angelou

"Determination is born out of purpose...knowing that you are gifted for something and this something must be attained. It is never enough to rely on luck or natural talent. You must, above all, believe in yourself, face your goals, and then fight as if your life depended on it"

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

" It is what it is, it's not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is" ~ Nicole Kidman

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible." ~ T.E. Lawrence

"Progress is not made by early risers or hard workers, but by Lazy people trying to find easier ways to do the same." ~ Henry Ford
