Nice.

Here's a few more that I like....

Be so good they can't ignore you. Steve Martin

Life is too precious to worry about stupid things.

Live in such a way, that if someone speaks badly of you no one would belive it.

Thanks Rita - I love that quote about the butterfly. It's so inspiring to me. Here's another:

1. What are some of your favorite quotes?

Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally know who you are.
- Kristin Armstrong

There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama & the people who create it & surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.

To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!

The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"!

2. When's your favorite time to just sit back and meditate? I do it when I'm going to bed at night. It helps me sleep better and then other times through out the day.
