  1. Rick Mofina really got me. 🙂 Incidentally, I post the idea like this quote today. When the end comes, we turns to be appreciated…so why do we wait for the end? We dint have to.. Be thankful during the journey of life. 🙂


  2. All are great quotes. There are so many I’ve never seen before. I think my favorite is the one posted by Randoms by a Random, but if I go back and reread, I’m sure to change my mind. It’s so hard to choose one favorite.

  3. Hi Colleen! Lots of great quotes again this week! My favorite would have to be Harry Potter’s Dumbledore’s quote, “Of course it’s happening in your head, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?” I love it! 😀
