My mind is running at a million miles an hour at the moment and I’m lacking inspiration for my blog today. All I have seen and heard for the last 24 hours it seems is Osama….here, there and everywhere. Even though he is no longer here. Which I have heard the rumors and conspiracy that he isn’t actually dead. I’m just honestly tired of hearing them at the moment so please spare me your conspiracy theories or political speeches for now. I just would rather not talk about him anymore at the moment….

I’ve decided instead to make a post of quotes. Quotes that I love, some new to me and some old ones that I have just always loved. This will not have ALL the quotes I love in it because that would take up a book possibly, BUT I will share some with you. And if you like, feel free to share your favorite quotes with me! I would love to hear them!

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.

  1. Love these! Many of them are actually some of my own personal favorites.

Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he’ll have to touch it to be sure.” ~Murphy’s Law


  2. You have saved the day… I hear ya on the news…they over do it. I am so happy they got obama but I am so tired from work that I missed all the hype.


    1. You mean, Osama? LOL
      Don’t worry…you’re not the first to make that accident. A news anchor on CBS News accidentally said Obama instead of Osama as well…


  3. Oh, I love some of these quotes. One of my tasks on my 101 in 1001 list is to put together a list of quotes, so I may still them from you!

    One of my favorite quotes comes from a movie, and I think it rings so true…

    Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get. – Forrest Gump
