Quotable Sunday

Toni, from A Daily Dose of Toni has this great weekly ritual of posting Favorite Quotes – the quotes that people come up with are very inspiring, so if you haven’t had a chance to check out Quotable Sunday, now’s your chance! 😉 This week I have chosen quotes about ‘Personal Growth’:

“Insist on yourself. Never imitate.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Heaven never helps the man who will not act.” Sophocles

“We only become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made of us.” Jean-Paul Sartre

“Heed the still small voice that so seldom leads us wrong, and never into folly.” Marquise du Deffand

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.” Benjamin Franklin

“If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

“The best rules to form a young man are: to talk little, to hear much, to reflect alone upon what has passed in company, to distrust one’s own opinions, and value others that deserve it.” Sir William Temple

“Exert your talents, and distinguish yourself, and don’t think of retiring from the world, until the world will be sorry that you retire.” Samuel Johnson

“The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.” Robert Cushing

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. Great quotes!

    Day 3 of the Where’s Wenda? Contest is here. Today I am visiting all of the SITStas that commented on Three Bay B Chicks. That means you! Thanks so much for stopping by and for being a great SITSta!

    -Wenda

  2. hey wenda come to my blog too!!! here’s my favorite quote, that became my mantra throughout my horrible divorce… that which does not kill us makes us strong – neitzche. to which i always wanted to reply – but what if i wanted to be a marshmallow all my life? 🙂

  3. Love this:
    “We only become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made of us.” Jean-Paul Sartre

    I refuse to conform!

  4. I love the Thomas Edison quote! I think it is so true as well! I know that if I did half of what I was capable of it would be amazing!

  5. My favorite quote is the one I use at dinner time passed down from my mother and so on.

    “Eat it, like it, and love it, cause you ain’t getting nothing else”.

  6. Love the Emerson quote, so very true. Have I mentioned lately how so very glad I am that we “met” LOL

  7. “Insist on yourself. Never imitate.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Perfect for my state of mind lately. Great quotes.

  8. My favorite, “Insist on yourself. Never imitate.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

    So simple, yet so true….

  9. If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves-Thomas Edison

    is my favorite. Sometimes it is just a matter of taking a deep breath and taking that first steep.

    Thanks for the great quotes.

  10. I’d be terrible at it, I’d only end up quoting the things my dad (Dr. B in my comments) would say and he’s snarky.

  11. Would the real Wenda please stand up! Well, one of the real Wenda’s anyway. Finding Wenda isn’t easy even when you live with her. I mean, not just in the same house, but the same body and mind.
