Great blog … great quotes

I admit … I’m a sucker for great quotes. I’ve really enjoyed this site:
A Fancy Word For Simple
It just started the first of January and the idea is simple. In fact, here are the “rules” as posted by the blog creators on January 1.

Here’s how to play: There will be a new quote each day. There might be questions with it or pictures or creations. It’s your choice what you want to do with the quote.
Think about it
Write about it
Take photographs
Create art

Check back daily for new inspiration. Be part of the process by posting comments, art, etc. on our blog or your blog. Collect quotes and inspiration. Share them with us.

So, here are a few of my favorite quotes so far from their site:

Iwanted a perfect ending. . . Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.
-Gilda Radner

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.-Walt Disney

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.-Henry David Thoreau

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.-Martin Luther King, Jr.

I guess the reason I adore a good quote is because I prize the ability to string words together in an interesting and thought-provoking manner. Enjoy the site and feel free to share some of your favorite quotes as well.
