Quote it Saturday

Hosted by Freda's Voice

"'Where there is a will there is a way,' is an old and true saying. He who resolves upon doing a thing, by that very resolution often scales the barriers to it, and secures its achievement."

                   ~ Samuel Smiles 1812 - 1904 ~
Scottish author and reformer

"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.  Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential." 

~ Ellen Goodman 1941 ~
American journalist and Pulitzer Prize winning syndicated columnist.

Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first day of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.

~ Henry Ward Beecher 1813 – 1887 ~
Prominent Congregationalist clergyman, social reformer, abolitionist, and speaker
