 Some quotes for today:

“Life engenders life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.” ~ Sarah Bernhardt, actress (1844-1923)

“It isn’t the big pleasures that count the most, it’s making a big deal out of the little ones.” – Jean Webster

“Think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures.” – H. Jackson Brown Jr.

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, or say, or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it.” – Charles Swindoll

“Holding onto a resentment is like eating rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.” – Anne Lamott in Crooked Little Heart

“Love doesn't just sit there like a stone: it has to be made like bread, remade all the time, made new.” -- Ursula K. LeGuin

“The most revolutionary thing one can do is always to proclaim loudly what is happening.” – Rosa Luxemburg

*** okay okay, I know there’s no such thing as “fresh” air anymore; I know I know I know. Still… it’s still always great to be outside. :) :)
