13 of my favorite quotes!

2.) All wars are follies, very expensive and very mischievous ones. -Benjamin Franklin
3.) What the world really needs is more love and less paper work. -Pearl Bailey

5.) But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine. -Thomas Jefferson
6.) I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past. -Thomas Jefferson
7.) All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother. -Abraham Lincoln
8.) God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame.- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
9.) In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. -Robert Frost
10.) Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence - neither speed up nor slow down, add to nor diminish - it is an imponderably valuable gift. Maya Angelou
11.) Nobody can bring you peace but yourself. Ralph Waldo Emerson
12.) No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I'm not talking about the kids. Their behavior is always normal. -Bill Cosby

thanks for visiting my T13 - I like Oprah's quote ... just b/c it talks about duct tape. My brother once used it to stop the bleeding from his freshly cut finger before he got to the hospital - ahhhh, duct tape
