Life is one quote after another

This quote made me think of texting: “Let us make a special effort to stop communicating with each other, so we can have some conversation.” Mark Twain

This quote made me think of Libya: “It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage that we move on to better things.” Theodore Roosevelt

This quote made me think of Bucking Change: “It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
C. S. Lewis



Happy Monday,

  10. Love these quotes. To add to the egg metaphor. If we don't change, we might crack up!

  11. Hi Theresa .. great quotes - loved the egg ones .. and Mary's addition.

    Mark Twain's one is so appropriate - a great many people don't allow their words to think .. they just are - ie a text without context .. so definitely communicating is so essential and getting those brain cobwebs to react, spark, think around a subject .. etc etc ..

    Happy weekend .. I'm late! Cheers Hilary
