And I Quote…


As much as I enjoy reading, I don’t always have time to sit and bury myself in a book. Sometimes it takes months to read a book and other times I can finish a book in a couple of days. Reading daily is essential for me, so many days I have to look for books or passages that are short and easy reads. When reading new material, I keep a journal and I often write phrases/sayings that I come across that are appealing to me. On some of those days when I can’t peruse a good book, I will skim through my journal of quotes. Listed below are quotes that are definitely some of my favorites:

  1. ” Don’t bite me with my own damn dog.”
  2. “Expectations lead to disappointments.”
  3. “The gate that locks others out also locks you in.”
  4. “The heart plays by its own rules.”
  5. “Can’t trap somebody who’s already in a cage.” –
  6. “To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.”
  7. “A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.”
  8. “Whoever I am or whatever I am doing, some kind of excellence is in my reach.”
  9. “You win some, you lose some and some get rained out but you still have to suit up for them all.”
  10. “We are twice armed if we fight with faith.”

While my journal of quotes provides easy reading, it also serves as a motivational tool. On days when I feel overwhelmed, being able to find a few encouraging words definitely lifts my spirits and sometimes the words on the page just remind me to keep going.
