    Hi everyone,

    I came across some great quotes and thought I'd share, please add more:

    ~Benjamin Franklin

    Every year of my life I grow more convinced that it is wisest and best to fix our attention on the beautiful and good and dwell as little as possible on the dark and the base.

    ~Grenville Kleiser

    ~George Eliot

    Thanks TM, I loved them all. This is my favorite today. I keep trying to do something new just so I don't become so darn inflexible in attitude.

    Loved these...many thanks for posting them. GREAT IDEA!:D
    I think my fave is "The bad news is time flies. The good new is you are the pilot."

    The one Fran mentioned is my second very thought provoking.

    Received these today:

    - Leonardo da Vinci, 1452 - 1519
    There are very few things impossible in themselves; and we do not want means to conquer difficulties so much as application and resolution in the use of means.
    - François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, 1613 - 1680
    How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.
    - Benjamin Franklin, 1706 - 1790
