    Favourite Quotes?

    I do like a good quotation!

    One of my favourites is:

    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Douglas Adams

    Anyone for anymore??

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the “present.”

    Although not from anyone famous I love this saying from Oogway in Kung Fu Panda

    Here are a couple of favourites from Victor Hugo

    “Music expresses that which can not be said and on which it is impossible to be silent”

    “When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes”

    Re: Favourite Quotations

    Here is a quote from a letter sent to me by one of the healthcare professionals who have helped me over the last year.

    “I hope that your newlly acquired positivity continues and that you are able to continue to feel encouraged and enabled to manage your life around your condition rather than feel overwhelmed by it.”

    I know there are difficult days and there will be lots more but this quote really cheers me up and sums up what we can all aspire to.

    Stan: Do you mind if I have another idea?

    Ollie: If it’s anything like the last one – yes!

    Knowing that everyone else also has problems with life helps keep me sane!

    Words. What Are They ? One Tear Says More Than All Of Them

    I blanked out the bad word, I hope nobody is offended but, it made me smile the first time my mate said it to me: Expect A Kick In The B******s & You Might Only Get A Poke In The Eye

    A True Man Does Not Need To Romance A Different Girl Every Night, A True Man Romances The Same Girl For The Rest Of Her Life

    I kept telling myself this when I went to Estonia: Who travels for love finds a thousand miles not longer than one – Japanese Proverb

    And this I posted on my profile on a disabled dating/friendship website that got the attention of my little Estonian:
    Rare Opportunity To Purchase A 1971 Classic. Bodywork Battered & A Bit Tatty But, The Motor Runs – Woogy

    There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self

    Everything is possible , the impossible just takes a little longer

    This is so true! I was told I would never learn to ride a bike without stabilisers… but I proved them wrong!
    I can’t walk that far either…. but I still managed to walk a very long way in Rome even though I was told ‘oh its huge, you won’t be able to walk around there you’ll get too tired’ I was the one who said ‘oh lets go down here and have a little walk’ and then realised after stopping in shops on the way, that we were half way back to our hotel from the vatican! (shopping is an amazing incentive and nice little rest stop)

    You haven’t got a problem, until you’ve got a problem

    My mum always says that, and her dad did too (my grandad) and its true! Don’t worry about something until you actually have a problem. I sit there freaking out about anything to do with needles and when I go for hospital check-ups I always worry they’ll want to take blood or something… but most of the time if you ask what its for an if they really need it and theres no other way… they don’t actually need it, its just for their records etc!

    We skiers know that falling over isn’t important; it’s getting up again.
    View quotes by Gerald Ford

    thought this one was apt for how things have went for me this week. havent been skiing but have had a few falls in the last week :oops: . thank god mostly indoors at home but fell leaving work one night and one of the new guys had to scoup me up off the floor. dont even know what one of the new guys it was, once back on my feet I sort of fled to my car. I do hope I said thank you. :oops:

    I totaly identify with the above quote, I seem to have no bother falling. :) getting up be byself is impossible.

    :lol: Yes, I have had a few of those sorts of moment … laugh about them now but at the time I was mortified!!

    Saw a tv prog last night [Brothers & Sisters], she said something on there I thought was rather poignant – it’s not about having the mother you want, it is wanting the mother you have.
