A friend gave me a gift this weekend – a book.  It has the most wonderful things in it and I want to share a few quotes with you.  Maybe they will inspire you as they have me:

The essential conditions of everything you do must be choice, love and passion.  Nadia Boulanger

We ought to be able to learn some things second-hand.  There is not enough time for us to make all the mistakes ourselves.  Harriet Hall

There are people who take the heart out of you, and there are people who put it back.  Elizabeth David

The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good – and how he treats people who can’t fight back.  Abigail Van Buren

Sandwich every bit of criticism between two layers of praise.  Mary Kay Ash

After the verb, “To Love” … “To Help” is the most beautiful verb in the world.  Bertha von Suttner

When I was growing up I always wanted to be someone.  Now I realize I should have been more specific.  Lilly Tomlin

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end, may also be only the beginning.  Ivy Baker Priest

Have a great start to this all-star week!
