More of my favorite quotes......

"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it." ~ John Lennon


"The chances of finding your ideal Prince or Princess is probably one in a million, and I don't believe that he or she exists. You have to accept the fact that your Prince or Princess will never be able to meet all of your needs, and that is fine." ~ Natalie Holland

Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything you will be happiest. ~ Chinmoy

Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy.~ Rabbi Abraham Heschel

Age is the acceptance of a term of years. But maturity is the glory of years. ~ Martha Graham
