From the desk calendar

As is my habit every year, before I throw away the work desk calendar, I read all the daily quotes. And being the lover of words that I am, I usually find some that I like. Here's my faves from 2008:

Putting off an easy thing makes it hard. Putting off a hard thing makes it impossible - WGP

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense. - Tom Clancy

There is no security on this earth; there is only opportunity. - Douglas Macarthur

Fall seven times, stand up eight. - Japanese proverb

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one. - Mother Theresa

Everyone must row with the oars he has. - English proverb

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly. - anonymous

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth - not going all the way, and not starting. - Buddha

Blog as scrapbook. I promise some craft content soon, really.

Oooh - I love quotes. These are goodies.

(I think they qualify as craft ... the "crafted" word, right?)

Nice quotes, great things to live by. I'm trying to teach Parker how to persist with things, she gives in really easy, and I know she's only 5, but I want her to be resilient. So, I like the 'fall down 7 times, get up 8'.
