Quotes & Sayings

Here is a listing of some quotes and sayings that I like and have collected over the years. These are not my writings, I’ve seen or heard them in one place or another and am listing the source if known. Some of these are plaques on my walls or magnets on the frig. I started collecting magnets after Ken and I got married to cover all the scratches on the freezer and refrigerator doors lol.

“The flowers of Yorkshire are like the women of Yorkshire. Every stage of their growth has its own beauty, but the last phase is always the most glorious. Then very quickly they all go to seed. Which makes it ironic my favourite flower isn’t even indigenous to the British Isles, let alone Yorkshire. I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” ~ Calendar Girls

“Regrets are a waste of time. They’re the past crippling you in the present.”

“It’s not the burdens of everyday that drive men mad.

Love one another.

Hang in there.

When friends gather hearts warm.

The Partnership of Marriage
The partnership of marriage begins when man and wife
Join hands and hearts together and start to share a life.
But through the years that follow, though they be very sweet,
without the Lord’s own blessing, somehow, life’s incomplete.
For He’s the Unseen Partner who makes a marriage strong,
Who renews hope brings love and faith when things go right or wrong.
And marriage bonds are strengthened as with a golden cord
When two can build their marriage as partners of the Lord.

Happiness is being married to your best friend.

TOGETHER is the BEST place to be.

It’s not what you’re dealt; it’s how you play it.

No earthly joys could bring more pleasure than a little girl to love and treasure.

I love what’s his name.

“Hey, Cinderella what’s the story all about?
I’ve got a funny feeling we missed a page or two somehow.
Oh, Cinderella maybe you could help us out?
Does the shoe fit you now?” ~ Suzy Bogguss
