"The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way."
~Robert Kiyosaki~

My lovely friend Kristin asked me where I get my quotes from. I've been "collecting" quotes as far back as I can remember - words written on desks, walls - found in books or even said in conversation, some even left on my car windshield or mailed to me at work by a secret admirer when I was in college. I'd write them down on whatever was handy at the moment - a napkin, my hand, back of a receipt, etc. Sometimes if I have something I am thinking about or wrestling with, I will google the topic with "quotes" added and I find some of them that way. Another search tactic I've done is searching for quotes of authors I have liked. My local email server provides news headlines as well as quotes when I sign in and I am certain there is probably a Facebook application or other applications that would also provide with quotes. Most of the time, the quotes I use come to me - but sometimes searching and finding them is like going on a treasure hunt!

I still have the scars - the one for my IV, the incisions for the laparoscopy, and the ones on my heart and soul.

You were mine little ones - I miss all that we could have been together.

If you wish, the whole sad tale is here.

Monday Quote

"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer."
~Rainer Maria Rilke~
