Quotes-They make me think!

Okay!  You KNOW how I love a great, thought-provoking, sentimental, or funny quote from a book, movie, song, etc. right?  I love a good quote that tickles my funny-bone  or really makes me think.  I believe a good quote can change my life…actually change me for the better.  Thus, I decided to do an area here dedicated to quotes!  Feel free to submit your own for consideration, but remember to include your name so I can give you credit, as well as where you found the quote.  Here and there I’ll include my feelings on certain quotes as well…so I’m going to start slowly…just a few to begin with…maybe one in each category.  Okay?  So choose a topic and read what kind of quotes I find helpful or entertaining, and then share yours with me!  I’m always looking for new ones!

To begin, here’s one I found last night…and boy-oh-boy can I relate!  It’s from an adorable, everybody-should-read-it book entitled Hank the Cowdog!  Hilarious!  Witty!  I LOVE it!  It’s written from Hank the Cowdog’s point of view and I LOVE this quote:

“…even though they’re known to be cunning and vijalent vijalunt vijallunt vijjulunt…I don’t know how to spell that word.  Spelling is a pain in the neck.  I do my best with it, but I figger if a guy has tremendous gifts as a writer, his audience will forgive a few slip-ups in the spelling department.”

I know I don’t have ‘tremendous gifts as  a writer,’ but as a romance storyteller, I hope my audience will forgive me for text errors, too!  See what I mean?  I loved it!  Just a really cute quote from a children’s book that resonated with me!  So please share some of your own!  Send them to me at marcialmcclure@cs.com with a subject line of “Quotes!”  Okay?

    I heared this on a Hallmark movie (LOVE THOSE)and I had to pause the TV and write it down, then later had it done on a sign to hang in my home. It is how I want my boys to remember their “Home” when they grow up. In the movie there was a little girl who didn’t want to move and leave her “home” This is what her mother said to her…

    “A home is a somewhere you will always have a place, always feel loved, and never be alone.”
