Words to live by

Have you ever heard the saying "why reinvent the wheel?" This holds true in writing as I like to incorporate quotes from famous people to make a point. It's not that I can't find anything to say. It's that some people just say it better.

Even my articulate and well-spoken father used quotes, and he started a tradition that carries on today through me. At all three of his daughter's weddings, he ended each toast with the Irish Prayer. Never a dry eye in the house.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Several of my fav's below.

Sometimes less is more, and the words of others can be just as profound as your own. What are some of your favorite life sayings?

"That's all" (a quote from my very dear friend, Karen)!
