Favourite Quotes

    Recommended Posts

    Guest dglamoore

    Thought I would put something on apart from migration :lol:

     

    What is your favourite quote? I have a few that make me think (or smile) and wondered what little gems other people have come across.

     

    Here are some of mine -

     

    - Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away

     

    - Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans

     

    - Best friends are the people that know all about you and still put up with you!

     

    and for work -

     

    - I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound as they fly by :lol: :lol:

     

    My favourite though and probably the one that gives me my outlook on life is one my grandad used to say -

     

    Everyday do something that makes you smile, makes you scared and something that takes your breath away and then you know you are alive :lol:

    You have to live life by this one:-

     

    - The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

    Walter Bagehot

     

    and for those moments when you need a lift, there is no better man than Groucho Marx, and his quote:-

     

    - Either this man is dead or my watch has stopped.

     

    Makes me smile to myself every time. :lol:

    Great thread Lisa,

     

    My fave quote is.........

     

    I refuse to tiptoe through life just to arrive safely at death.

     

     

    My hubby rides a motorbike and his fave quote and tagline on his emails is.............

     

    Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly.

     

    I actually found this quote on a sticker and a cloth batch so bought them for him, the sticker is on the fuel tank of his bike and the cloth badge he had profeessionally sewn to the arm of his bike leather jacket. He's now designing himself a flying angel tattoo which will also include that quote.

    I prefer the lines on the back of NoFear t-shirts.

     

    "If you are not living on the edge...

     

    You are taking up too much space"

     

    And My Favourite...

     

    "Life is too short to worry about where the next tenner is coming from"

    "He who dies with the most debt, Wins"

    Fantastic idea as ever Lisa

     

    Here is my contribution:

     

    Save the planet - it's the only one with chocolate.

     

    A sister is god's way of proving he doesn't want us to walk alone.

     

     

    And one from my fridge magnet - never trust a doctor whose office plants are dead.
