Two of my moms favorite...
Things always look better in the morning
Things always work out in the end, if they haven't worked out your not at the end

Two of my dads favorite...
Your not the brightest crayon in the box
Never take any wooden nickles

I suppose mine would be...
Life to short, laugh often
Diversity is all we need

I have two favorites:
"if it's free it's for me"
and
"it doesn't matter how much authority you have if no one does what you tell them" (came from raising children)! LOL

My all-time favorite quote, drummed into me by my late father, is:

"Admit you don't know and then find out."

That philosophy has fueled a lot of my curiosity, all to good advantage.

I've always liked this one. It has been quoted and misquoted many times.

There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it ill behaves any of us to find fault with the rest of us.

Something I often told my son as he was growing up and not wanting to do his homework:

If you don't start; you'll never finish

I have had to tell myself that on many occassions when facing projects I didn't want to do (clean the house, complete Christmas cards, etc.)

Hope it can help motivate you, too.

I've always liked "It is never too late to be what you might have been." That's a quote from George Eliot, I believe.

Crazy drivers-"Where did he get his driver's license? A gumball machine??"

My dad says plenty of good ones, but maybe not for a bookmark.

"It's 6 of one and 1/2 a dozen of another"

"he's a few bricks short of a full load"

"if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"

I saw a great bumper sticker the other day that said:

I'm still chuckling about it.

Here are some sayings I like ...

"Life is uncertain ... eat dessert first!"

"Don't cry because it's over ... smile because it happened."

"There are no problems ... just challenges and opportunities."

This is from a song but I can't remember which group did it (and don't know who wrote the lyrics):

"If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."

Tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift.

That's why they call it the present.

(I believe Eleanor Roosevelt said that)

I have 2 favourites -

"Time is an illusion, especially lunchtime" - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

"I'm going to live forever or die trying" - Woody Allen (I think) which is my philosophy for life

oh and this next one is just so true for me -
"God put me on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things.
Right now I am so far behind that I will never die." Bill Watterson

Here are my favorite quotes that I put on an altered clipboard for myself:

Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.
"why not?" is a slogan for an interesting life.
If you are not living on the edge you are taking up too much room.
Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.
Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. (Ferris Bueller)
Taken out of context I must seem so strange.

On the light side: Smile, it gives your face something to do. Smile. It makes people wonder what you've been up to. If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.
