Quotes to Remember... 2/28/11

I am a collector of quotes. I love it when I read something that inspires me. So in honor of the quotes that I love I officially name Mondays "Quotes to Remember..." day

Here's your quote for today 

"The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want." - Ben Stein 

Share your favorite quotes with me and it just might show up on Quotes to Remember...


  1. I think some one who claims to be holier than thou art should not be so hypocrytical. Just a thought.
    back to a favorite quote of mine...( as you have inspired me with your own quotes) "People who live in glass houses shall not throw stones--- anonymous

  2. sad when you feel so much hatred and jealousy towards someone that you feel the need to drudge up drama... I feel sorry for what your poor children see. Children are not to be used as a source of income.---- no baby factory here

  3. Wow "Anonymous" since you are here on MY blog making accusations at me anonymously and you can't even own up to who you are or at least contact me privately it makes one wonder if it isn't you who likes to, how did you say it, drudge up drama. But thanks for the quote. I just might use it but I would suggest that you live by that principle too.

    If you would like to contact me privately you can find my email address on my contact page

  4. I like this quote. Sometimes deciding what we want is the hardest part!!!

  5. Wow! Don't you love it when someone attacks "anonymously". Such cowards!! This is Sarah Clawson by the way! I'll be glad to show my face :)

  6. A favorite quote of mine is
    Isiah 54:17

    No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD.

  7. Any time success comes before work is in the dictionary. This is my favorite quote. :)

  8. I despise drama, especially anonymous drama makers!

  9. your cowardly commenters make zero sense. own up to your words.
    i appreciate a thought provoking quote, thanks!

  10. Oh my! That anonymous commenter really does not make much sense... What does this blog post have anything to do with your children or hatred or anything?? LOL! Weird, weird person IMO.

  11. Anonymous - I suggest you re-read the quote. The topic is about making a decision, not trash and dash.
    Since we are in this thought provoking conversation, a few words come to mind in reading "Anonymous'" comments that are real tell-tell signs of themself:
    Pot, kettle

    SOOOO not qualities to show and teach children. How sad for someone to TRY to blame their own insecurities on an innocent bystander who certainly did not ask for this hell to be forced upon them and their family. Grow up - rise above - and deal with the bed of thorns you've created.

  12. I love the quote. Gotta love the annonymous users who leave such wonderful comments that have absolutely no bearing on the quote at hand. Sounds like a bunch of teenagers. I on the other hand absolutely agree with the quote. I believe that true happiness comes from discovering what it is that you want out of life.
